One of the players that could be on the Chargers radar is FSU C/T Cameron Erving. Erving is one of the most versatile offensive lineman in the college game. He can play center and can also play the tackle positions. That is a skill set that the San Diego Chargers value. For the Chargers, Erving could take the center position and Chris Watt can move to the position that he played in college at left guard. That would then get Orlando Franklin to play the position he did with the Denver Broncos at right tackle and then D.J. Fluker would then move to the right guard position.
Erving is a player that could be taken late in the first or early in the 2nd. The Chargers might have to move up in the 2nd in order to get a chance to take him.
The San Diego Chargers offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris is running the drills for FSU today and coach Joe D. is getting a live look in at the athlete that is Erving. Erving would be a solid player to add onto the offense and fits that versatile offensive lineman that the Chargers love to have. He stands at 6-foot 5 and is 313 pounds. He would just be more beef to add up front. He would be the lightest starter on the team, but the other guys up front would be able to share how to put on some pounds for the season.
He would compete for a starting job as soon as he got into camp. He could take the center role or move to the tackle spot. The team keeps saying that Watt will be the center going into the season, but adding another player that is capable of the job could change their minds.
