Chargers Possible 53 Man Roster

By FanSided Staff

Now that the painful 2011 season is in the distant past, we Charger fans have something to look forward to in the upcoming season.

With very solid draft additions like Melvin Ingram, Kendall Reyes, Brandon Taylor, Ladarius Green, Johnnie Troutman, (already on IR), David Molk and Edwin Baker and some great free agent signings like Robert Meachem, Eddie Royal, Jarret Johnson, Demorrio Williams and Atari Bigby to name a few, I sincerely feel that this upcoming season will be special, and could probably be the best season in Charger’s history.

I know it’s early and all but I thought I would put together an early peek at what the final 53 man roster MIGHT look like. Notice I emphasized “might”. You never know if one or two of the undrafted free agents could catch the attention of the coaching staff and end up on the team. Some of the players I don’t mention could also end up on the active roster or the practice squad as well.

Now remember, this is a very preliminary look. I am curious to see how close I get.

Some of you out there may disagree, which is fine. This list is in no way, shape or form, my so called “picks”. This list is just an educated guess. I’m also assuming that the Chargers will only go with 2 quarterbacks.
