The depth at secondary for the San Diego Chargers looks thin, but free agent pickup Johnny Patrick looks like a lock to make the roster.

Former Saint Johnny Patrick had pretty much made this team as nickel and depth at cornerback. Today, he is making sure.

Patrick has been having a strong camp and could see plenty of playing time in the nickel. He still hasn’t shown anything in games yet, but he has been impressive during practices and will get his opportunity to show it to all the fans in a week against the Seattle Seahawks.
