San Diego Chargers player to watch: Nick Dzubnar


The San Diego Chargers have a history of finding solid talent with their undrafted free agents. Last season, the team brought in Branden Oliver onto the roster and he showed off his skills during his rookie season. He looks like he could get plenty of action on the field this year despite the addition of Melvin Gordon with the first pick in the draft. After a year of refining his skills, he will be an impact player.

This year, undrafted free agent Nick Dzubnar is a player that we need to watch. He has come into camp and has picked up the playbook quickly and you could see him all over the field in the 2nd preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. He finished the game with 5 tackles and a sack.

“A lot of it is attitude, effort and hustle really,” Dzubnar said about his play, via ESPN. “And a lot of it has to do with the way you play, your instincts and the stuff you rely on to make plays out there. Obviously that stuff carries over — you’re just going up against bigger and faster guys.”

The Chargers drafted Denzel Perryman in the second round to bring depth to the middle. The addition of Dzubnar will give the team a solid young group of linebackers that will be hungry to make an impact.

Watch number 48 on the field and you will notice that he is always in the mix. Watch the rookie hustle all over and make plays. He will have to show off skills on special teams to make this team, but I don’t think that will be a problem for the kid. He just wants to go out and make plays.

After the team lost Reggie Walker and Andrew Gachkar in the offseason, the addition of Dzubnar will be a huge boost to that linebackers group. He adds another linebacker that is hungry to make plays.

“I’m going to try and outwork everyone, no matter what happens,” Dzubnar said. “I want to get to every single ball, and that’s how I’m going to play every single down.”

Watch him on Saturday against the Seattle Seahawks. He will get his chance to get on the field to make plays.
