    Holy **** I'm excited for Mathews, Butler, and Thomas.

    Butler is bigger than I thought he was.

    You should be excited about Stuckey too. The dude is going to be a baller. Agree on Butler...he's a big dude.

    I'm kinda routing for Ellison to take the next step, I'd like to see him keep the starting position as a big hitter in the box.

    Butler and stuckey are gonna surprise alot of people how good they are. Matthews will be really good. CAm thomas will be good.

    i think when all is said and done this will be the best draft we've had lately anyway.

    Yeah not working for me either. Can see the video with Norv talking. Really like the look of Butler. Why is Ryan wearing 24?. I thought he was taking 33.

    EDIT: It's ok I see he changed his mind. I like 24. Good choice. Mine and my son's birth date!.

    Not working today for me either


    Btw I said it in my draft review and on the podcast, with our first four picks I think we have four potential rookie starters who could be very impressive

    I like Ellison too, but he'll never be more than a role player as you have described an "in the box" safety who will come in to help blow up plays on running downs as almost an extra LBer. The guy just doesn't have the footspeed to keep up in coverage assignments. He is a good football player, instinctive and tough....all of which I like....But he is also the slowest guy on our defense outside of the linemen.

    I think Spillman may be in the mix also to challenge for a spot. If he has another pre-season like last year, Stuckey is going to have his work cut out.

    Ultimately, I would like to see someone unseat Weddle who is far from untouchable IMO. Weddle is best suited to a nickel CB role.

    this year and last year we've added basically nothing but high character guys. Stuckey might be the highest character guy of the last two years and that's saying something

    High character guys with TALENT too apparently. The only guy I'm kind of worried about is Cam Thomas but hopefully he's only a Joker off the field but a true warrior on the field. Just don't let him get "Shaun Phillipitis" and get in fights, tweeting 24/7 and being a distraction and he'll be all right. Mathews, Butler, Stuckey, Thomas, Epps. This might turn out to be a great draft class for us. We'll have to see in 3 years though.

    I just wish the NFL and/or Chargers would ban twitter. These twittering tools really need to get a life and let their play on the field speak for them rather than trying to self promote on the internet.

    Some guys have an easier time with the NFL transition than others...

    "Alright Cam, which trash can has the football on top of it?"

    "This one coach!"

    Why would they ban Twitter when half the 'breaking news' that Adam Schefter and Jason La Canfora get are through tweets?

    Marcus McNeill is a 'jokester' in interviews but remember in that 2006 game in Denver when he was ready to throw down with those two Bronco defenders, while having two broken hands?

    Sproles
    ???
    Dombrowski
    ???

    So basically-- who's the brother in the red cap? And who's the honky on the far left? :icon_shrug:

    Mathews looks like a BEAST in that first picture. His arms and legs look a lot thicker than I would have thought. Can't wait to see what this guy can do.

    Also, great to see Sprolesey out there with a smile. He's a good team player. I guess knowing you have 7 large for one year is pretty reassuring.

    I hope Charger players don't "giggle", I'm sure they were just offering some constructive critizism to the fresh meat :icon_shrug:

    "giggling" sounds like school girls instead of football players. chuckling perhaps?
