    <img src="http://bolttalk.com/images/olivea01.jpg" class="left" alt="Shane Olivea" />The Draft Day strategy is called "check back left," and it allowed the Chargers to steal a starting right tackle in the seventh round last year.

    "Check back left" means the Chargers reviewed names still on their draft board as the seventh round approached, looking to the columns to the left to see if players the Bolts had graded in the sixth, fifth or earlier rounds were still available.

    That's when they spotted Shane Olivea, a right tackle from Ohio State that the Chargers had rated as high as a third-round pick. Several NFL teams also had Olivea, a two-time All-Big Ten second-team pick, rated that high.</blockquote>
