3. Lawrence Guy

Lawrence Guy could re-join the LA Chargers after seven years

Whether the LA Chargers convert to a 3-4 defense or stay with a more traditional 4-3 defense, the team needs depth at the defensive tackle position. As it stands, the Bolts only have one true run-stuffer at defensive tackle in Linval Joseph, who is in the last year of his contract and is not getting any younger.

The Chargers someone who can help against the run at the position, even more so if they do switch to a 3-4 defense as being good against the run is really important for the defensive ends in a 3-4 front.

Regardless, the Chargers can build up the position group and get someone who can help the team against the run in Lawrence Guy, who has been a part of several great teams throughout his career.

He has spent the last four seasons with the New England Patriots, spent the previous two with John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens (although two bad years) and started his career on two 11-5 Indianapolis Colts teams.

Guy has played under a defensive mastermind in Bill Belichick and his experience in that regard could be really beneficial to the young guys, such as Jerry Tillery, on the defensive line.

Guy is not great in pass-rush and at this point in his career is kind of a one-trick pony against the run, but that is exactly what the LA Chargers need.
