Nasir Adderley

The Chargers had a rookie safety make the Pro Bowl last year, so why not make it two years in a row?

Nasir Adderley may not be quite as talented as Derwin James, but he is going to bring what the Chargers have been lacking in their secondary for years and quite frankly, that might be the missing piece to a Super Bowl run.

To make the Pro Bowl, Adderley would have to have a tremendous impact as a rookie, but because he and James play in the secondary, they can feed off of each other and both players will be better because the other guy is there.

Adderley has experience as a cornerback so he does possess some ball skills along with the ability to lay the wood on the opposition. Don’t be surprised to see him force multiple game-clinching turnovers this season.

The odds of one team landing both of their starting safeties on the Pro Bowl roster, especially two guys as young as James and Adderley, are pretty slim. But if the league has any team that can do that, it may very well be the Chargers.
