The San Diego Chargers had another disappointing 7-9 season in 2012, and long-time head coach Norv Turner paid for it finally after spending year after year on the hot seat.Now with Mike McCoy as the head coach, here is the draft class he has to work with for his first season on the job.San Diego Chargers Rookie Class Of 2013Draft Picks1st Round: D.J. Fluker – Offensive Tackle2nd Round: Manti Te'o – Inside Linebacker3rd Round: Keenan Allen – Wide Receiver 5th Round: Steve Williams – Cornerback6th Round: Tourek Williams – Defensive End 7th Round: Brad Sorensen – Quarterback  Undrafted Free Agent RookiesJahleel Addae – Defensive BackNick Becton – TackleFrank Beltre – LinebackerGreg Brown – Defensive BackBen Cotton – Tight EndMarcus Cromartie – Defensive BackKwame Geathers – Nose TackleMichael Hill – Running BackByron Jerideau – Nose TackleRichard Kent – PunterJamarkus McFarland – Defensive EndDaniel Molls – LinebackerBrandon Moore – Defensive End Kenny Okoro – Defensive BackRandy Richards – TackleDavid Rolf – Tight EndLuke Tasker – Wide ReceiverDevan Walker – LinebackerAfter having an offense ranked in the bottom 10 in 2012, the Chargers have addressed the weak spots that could possibly put them back in the middle of the pack if not better this season. Tackle D.J. Fluker was a perfect addition to a revamped line that also added former Philadelphia Eagles tackle King Dunlap to anchor the other end of the line.To go along with the new additions on the line, look for receivers Keenan Allen and Luke Tasker on Sundays relieving Malcom floyd of all the double coverage he commands. Tasker might only be 5-11, but his nickname is Steele and weighs 190 pounds. Another thing Steele has going for him is that he is the son of Buffalo Bills All-Time great Steve Tasker.To go along with the additions to their offense the Chargers also beefed up their pass rush after ranking 18th in the league last season.Manti Te'o should fit right in on a defense that is looking for a strong passionate leader. Te'o was by far the best linebacker in college football last season, and only slipped to the second round due to his inability to figure out real from fake in his personal life.To go along with Te'o the Chargers added seven defensive ends. Jamarcus McFarland should find himself starting at some point this season, while Tourek Williams should see the majority of his snaps at outside linebacker.
