    Aug. 10 Depth Chart
    10:19 a.m., Aug. 10, 2011
    Written by Kevin Acee

    It's early. But by popular demand, what follows represents who I think will be on the 53-man roster – as of Aug. 10 -- plus players who could sneak onto the 53 and should at least be considered likely practice squad members. This is subject to change, of course, and will be update as merited (after the first preseason game, as roster moves are made, etc.)

    Offense

    WIDE RECEIVER
    Vincent Jackson
    Malcom Floyd
    Patrick Crayton
    Vincent Brown Injured most of camp so far; at this point the hope is he’ll still be able to contribute.
    Kelley Washington
    Seyi Ajirotutu Second-most improved player over offseason. Has found salvation in special teams.
    Bryan Walters Could be that preseason sensation people fall for. Back to practice squad at least.

    LEFT TACKLE
    Marcus McNeill
    Brandyn Dombrowski

    LEFT GUARD
    Kris Dielman
    Tyronne Green Also working at center with second team.

    CENTER
    Nick Hardwick
    Scott Mruczkowski Had scare with quadriceps tear, but is day-to-day.
    Colin Baxter A beast. Coming off December ACL surgery, so he’s a project.

    RIGHT GUARD
    Louis Vasquez Best camp of his three-year career. Has secured this job.
    Green

    RIGHT TACKLE
    Jeromey Clary
    Stephen Schilling You can already tell he’s nasty.

    TIGHT END
    Antonio Gates
    Randy McMichael
    Kory Sperry Most improved player over offseason.

    QUARTERBACK
    Philip Rivers
    Billy Volek
    Scott Tolzien Might be too dangerous to put him on practice squad.

    RUNNING BACK
    Ryan Mathews
    Mike Tolbert
    Jordan Todman Fastest back on team, by a shoelace over Mathews.

    FULLBACK
    Jacob Hester
    Tolbert

    Defense

    LEFT END
    Luis Castillo
    Vaughn Martin So athletic, explosive. Solid camp. Preseason to determine how much he’s trusted.
    Ogemdi Nwagbuo

    NOSE TACKLE
    Antonio Garay
    Cam Thomas

    RIGHT END
    Corey Liuget Already impressed veterans and coaches with knowledge, technique, instincts.
    Jacques Cesaire Old pro ready to fill in anywhere.

    OUTSIDE LINEBACKER
    Shaun Phillips
    Larry English On PUP while fighting back from two foot surgeries.
    Antwan Barnes
    Travis LaBoy Has been taking all first-team reps with English out.
    James Holt
    Andrew Gachkar Drafted for special teams, he goes hard all the time.

    INSIDE (MIKE) LINEBACKER
    Takeo Spikes
    Jonas Mouton Will be worked into rotation.

    INSIDE (MAC) LINEBACKER
    Donald Butler Athletic, knows where to go. There will be worse starters in the league.
    Kion Wilson Injured. Needs to get back to fend off young Bront Bird.
    Bront Bird

    LEFT CORNERBACK
    Quentin Jammer
    Dante Hughes Likely #1 nickel, so he will get plenty of snaps.
    Shareece Wright Probably missed too much time already to be counted on in ’11.

    RIGHT CORNERBACK
    Antoine Cason
    Marcus Gilchrist Has met every challenge. Physical and looks for turnovers.
    Ramon Broadway Has turned heads internally.

    STRONG SAFETY
    Bob Sanders Top priority is to keep him on field for 16 games.
    Steve Gregory Like Hughes, will be in on nickel defense.

    FREE SAFETY
    Eric Weddle
    Darrell Stuckey Moved to free; seems like finally getting it after "redshirt" rookie season.

    KICKER
    Nate Kaeding

    PUNTER
    Mike Scifres

    LONG SNAPPER
    David Binn

    KICK RETURNER
    Gilchrist
    Crayton

    PUNT RETURNER
    Cason
    Gilchrist

    Don't worry, Kevin Acee has been wrong plenty times before. Remember when he said Sproles wouldn't make the roster, or Tolbert?

    A seer, Acee is not. ;)

    Very true..He's been all hyped on Walters from the get-go.. I could be wrong, perhaps Goodman can't hang on to the rock, but otherwise he's shifty and fast as hell!

    yea, I think we all know he doesn't understand the game of football..However reading through that list I must say he's probably pretty close to being right this time

    Of course, as long as he can stay healthy.

    If Hester is one thing, its durable...other than that he's a decent ST'er at best

    I proved leisure and EC wrong, I take care of the pool myself and the water isn't green.

    Anybody bother to count to see if there are in fact 53 players listed above?. I didn't. Seems like there is more?. The only guy that was 'off the top of my head' missing was Goodman.

    OK I counted em. I make it there are 58 players above, 27 on O, 28 on D and the 3 specialists. So who are his 53 if some are to be PS?. It is not clear to me. He has 10 O linemen listed, 1 too many maybe?, only 7 D linemen?.

    Has anyone noticed that CD is unhappy with the kicker... I mean I almost missed it. It is not as if every fricken time he posts he is pining about the same damn thing...

    We signed Texas guard Michael Huey to a 3 year deal. Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't he make the team?
