According to Eric D. Williams of ESPN, Jeremiah Attaochu has “continued to flash speed and athleticism in his first week of training camp.”
He claims that Attaochu has been used as a “pass-rush specialist” thus far.

What Eric said next is actually pretty intruiging to me.
“At times Attaochu has been a little overzealous in pursuing the ball carrier. Attaochu was beat on a wheel route by Ryan Mathews and tackled him by legs, a no-no during team drills when players are supposed to keep hitting above the waist.
And while rushing the passer, Attaochu pushed tackle Michael Harris back in to quarterbackKellen Clemens, who hit his hand on Harris’ helmet following through on a pass down the field. But the Chargers can live with Attaochu’s enthusiasm, as long as he’s playing aggressive and making plays. ”
I love the intensity Jeremiah, but let’s not injure players like Ryan Mathews! Or Ernie will go crazy on you!
Thanks a lot for reading.
