The San Diego Chargers, who can ill afford another underachieving first-round draft selection, say they're pleased with rookie defensive end Corey Liuget.
A week ago, Liuget chafed about not having a sack through 13 games. Sunday night in mop-up duty against Baltimore, Liuget finally downed a quarterback - Ravens backup Tyrod Taylor - in the last minute of San Diego's 20-point victory.
Coach Norv Turner feels Liuget is going to get a lot more sacks.
Director of player personnel Jimmy Raye says he thinks Liuget will have a big jump from his first year to his second year, just like running back Ryan Mathews has.
Liuget entered the draft after his junior year at Illinois and was taken 18th overall.
