    The first day of full squad workouts kicked off on Friday morning. The Chargers won't be in full pads until Saturday when the famous Oklahoma Drill takes place.

    Adell Duckett worked out with the outside linebackers. He played exclusively at defensive end for Texas Tech.

    At 6-foot-3, 265 pounds, Duckett doesn't fit as well along the defensive line in the 3-4 defense. Given his ability to rush the passer, he may be given extra opportunities to make at least the practice squad, especially as a player who is learning a new position.

    Clinton Hart manned one position in the dime defense. The safety has a shot at the starting free safety position – looking to unseat the incumbent, Jerry Wilson.

    Bhawoh Jue wasn't anywhere to be seen on the field. Jue, the lone free agent signee by San Diego is also in the mix for the starting free safety spot. He actually did practice but was rarely visible.

    It was no surprise seeing the three-man crew of Keenan McCardell, Reche Caldwell and Eric Parker as the starting unit to take the field.

    Tight end Ryan Krause appears to have added a little weight and looked solid on the field.

    Vincent Jackson had a rough first practice as he gets rid of the jitters of his first day in camp. While he gained some separation, he also dropped two very catchable balls, having them both slip through his fingers.

    Drew Brees looked crisp with the rock. He threaded a couple of nice passes in to his receivers, dropping a couple just over the outstretched hands of the linebackers.

    Philip Rivers was throwing bullets. He has a quick release and drills the ball. The one problem he had was communication. He tossed two passes that went behind the receivers. One was the fault of Malcom Floyd but the other one, sent to Darren Sproles, the onus was on Rivers.

    The LASIK surgery Quentin Jammer had this offseason seems to be working wonders already. Jammer was in good position today and knocked a few away.

    Speaking of the corners, Drayton Florence lined up with the first team.

    Sproles lined up out wide on a few occasions. This will likely be the norm heading into the season as they look to get the dynamic playmaker some touches.
