Chargers No. 13 most deserving: Sylvester Williams
Williams ends up last on the list because of how little time he’s spent with the Chargers. He’s flashed on occasion, but not much else. On the season, the former first-round pick has four solo tackles, one run stop, and one quarterback hurry.
Chargers No. 12 most deserving: Trent Scott
I’m sure placing Scott above any player elicits some anger from fans, but this is about who is most deserving of the extension. Scott has played 779 snaps at left and right tackle this season, and that’s not something to dismiss so easily. Sam Tevi had years of practice and a number of starts; Scott was just supposed to be the guy behind Russell Okung.
Chargers No. 11 most deserving: Jatavis Brown
This hurts, because Brown was one of the most electric rookies the team has had since Tom Telesco took over. Today, he’s got the worst tackling efficiency number in the entire NFL. Brown could be deserving of a cheap one-year deal to be the team’s Dzubnar, but it’s clear he’s been surpassed by other linebackers on the roster for the role he once held.
