Dontrelle Inman was brought in this offseason and has worked well with the offense and the rest of the roster. He has fit in nicely and is looking to secure a spot on the roster with his first action in the preseason tonight.

He has impressed since his arrival and he is constantly seen after practice putting in the extra work. His dream is to play in the NFL, so he better get that extra work in now to show that he is a pro. All that work is getting noticed by his teammates and by his coaching staff.

Here is what his teammate Eddie Royal said.

“You kind of forget he’s one of the younger players because he fits in with the veterans so well,” Royal said. “It’s about being a pro: staying after practice every day, the way he takes care of his body, the way he knows the playbook inside and out. You can put him at any position, and he’ll know what to do. … He can play special teams. He’s the type of guy you want on your team.” – UT San DIego 

I like the chances of Inman taking a roster spot. At 6-foot-3, he will be a nice target for Philip Rivers and the offense. He is battling with Vincent Brown and Seyi Ajirotutu on the depth chart. Inman could force the team to keep 6 receivers on the roster. He helps in special teams and would be a nice target on offense.

We get to see him in game action for the first time today. He will be one of the players that I will be rooting for on the field. Hopefully he gets some opportunities.
