    <img width="162" height="169" align="left" alt="Malcom Floyd" title="Malcom Floyd" src="http://blog.chargers.com/Floyd.jpg" />Rumor has it some NBA recruiters are scouting Charger's training camp. It's not true, but wide receivers Vincent
    Jackson, Kassim Osgood and Malcom Floyd, all 6' 5" tall, have pulled down enough jump balls over the last few weeks to deserve a look. Judging by the acrobatics seen throughout camp, the Charger's receiver corps is rebounding. It appears that on opening day the Bolts will field the most physically intimidating group of receivers in the NFL. No other team has more than one receiver over 6' 5". The Chargers have three.

    The most diminutive receiver on the squad is Eric Parker at 6' 0", while Keenan McCardell and Greg Camarillo are both 6' 1". They don't need to worry about job security, though -- quick and elusive will always be in demand. But since 2003, there has been a definite trend toward larger receivers in the NFL.
