Max Starks/King Dunlap:

Last week, The Chargers competition at left tackle continued. The Chargers rotated their 1st and 2nd string left tackles in order to see who would take a grasp of the starting position. Against the Bears, the left tackle competition was no contest. Max Starks allowed his defender to beat him with ease, which led to a sack/fumble. Starks just looks a step too slow when the pass rush is on and can’t move his feet quick enough to get good protection. King Dunlap on the other hand, has been a nice surprise thoughout training camp and the first two preseason games. As of now the starting left tackle job is Dunlap’s to lose, but he will have to show continued improvement in order to convince the coaches that he is the right choice at left tackle.
