4. Alohi Gilman
Back to us talking about how an overall position group is thriving and there is one player who is not making a difference. The Chargers coaching staff really has to like what they see out of their safeties during camp as these players have taken the opportunity of getting more snaps while Derwin James is holding in.
Nasir Adderley has become the leader of the safety position in Derwin's absence and is showing that he is primed to make yet another leap in year three similar to the leap he made in year two. But Adderley has not been alone.
Mark Webb has showcased his coverage abilities in his return to action. While Webb is not a great tackler, he is absolutely someone the Chargers could utilize in nickel and dime sets. Rookie JT Woods has made a solid impression and most notably is UDFA Raheem Layne.
Layne came into camp with a lot of special teams value that instantly put him ahead of other UDFA in the roster battle. He has coupled that with strong play on the defensive side of the ball, making him the favorite UDFA to make the roster as it stands today.
And then we have Alohi Gilman, who already is not a great fit in Brandon Staley's defense and has not really done anything to stand out thus far in camp. Just based on his profile and what has happened in camp thus far, it seems like Gilman may end up getting cut.
