We have been pushing out our Bolt Beat list of top 10 Chargers of 2011 and here is who we have named on the list so far:

10. Takeo Spikes9.  Malcom Floyd8.  Antwan Barnes7.  Jared Gaither6.  Mike Tolbert5.  Vincent Jackson4.  Antonio Gates

The TOP 3 on our list should be released in the next couple of days. Here are a few guys that didn’t make the list, but were considered by the team:

Vincent BrownThe rookie had to step into the starting lineup a few times with Malcom Floyd hitting the sidelines so often. He climbed up the depth chart with Patrick Crayton and other being ineffective and provided some nice highlights for us to remember. He could make an even bigger impact this season and we look forward to seeing him progress.

Nick HardwickNick is a STUD on that front line. He should always be in the running for one of the best players on the team and sometimes his contributions get overlooked. Just life as an offensive lineman! We look forward to another awesome season from Nick.

Kris DielmanSo sad to see the guy retire, but he made a decision for his family and for his future and we can only respect that. I wish he was able to finish the season, because he was having an awesome year before he went down. Wish the best for him in the future!
