Analyzing the 2011 Draft: San Diego Chargers

When it comes to grading team’s in the NFL Draft, it takes 3 years to properly asses a team’s success. I previously graded the Denver Broncos draft.

It made for a spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. And it also begged another question: How close was Mr. Irate Fan’s WR to making the list? To provide an answer, the editors...

Is Corey Liuget poised for a breakout season in 2014?

Corey Liuget, already one of the better players on a San Diego Chargers defense that was rather subpar a season ago, is improving mightily in the offseason after a shoulder injury aggravated him for all of the 2013 season. And that news should certainly delight Chargers fans. Liuget, a former Illinois Fighting Illini, underwent a surgical procedure recently to help heal a torn labrum...

The top 10 defensive ends in the draft: Chargers could add a pass rusher late

The defensive end in the 3-4 defense goes a bit unnoticed compared to the role the position plays in the traditional 4-3. In a 3-4, these players have to eat up blockers on certain plays in order for the OLB to have an easier time rushing the passer, while other times the defensive end needs to tee off on the quarterback. The Chargers are equipped with two pretty darn good 3-4 defensive...

Top 10 Free Agent Defensive linemen: Could Raji replace Cam Thomas?

One of lesser addressed points of the 2013 season in San Diego was the unmet expectations of Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes to develop into a dominate tandem. While Liuget had a good season, some would say Reyes had a disappointing year. I, however, am not one of those people. In a 3-4 defense, the defensive ends are some of the lesser appreciated players on the field, and I think...

Monday’s Mock: Chargers seek next Jamal Williams at NT

Reasons to trust defensive coordinator, John Pagano

During a surprisingly successful season for the San Diego Chargers, one of the things that did not go well was the overall play of the defense. The Chargers ranked 23rd in the league in yards allowed this season, but only 11th in points allowed. That doesn’t tell the whole story, as Football Outsiders’ DVOA, evaluating efficiency on a play-by-play basis had San Diego 32nd in...
