    I don't have Bosa on the team.

    After all this is the Chargers we're talking about. They've made offending players into an art form.

    I don't see why he should unless there's a couple injuries. This roster isn't deep, and FS is arguably the shallowest position, so there's a chance he makes it.

    I think he has a great chance to make it just strictly off leadership/special teams play

    For the sake of keeping a veteran, and a good STs guy maybe he's safe. But the guy is a terrible FS.

    Well this is going to get real interesting.

    Stuckey is a stellar special teamer.
    Jatavis is a...what?...strong safety?

    Carrethers is on the bubble.
    Square is ahead of him at NT.
    I have Lissemore, Square, Carrethers, Papepoi competing for two spots.
    We keep six/dress five.

    Swain has quick feet and mucho size.
    I like him as a runner.

    The current Chargers depth chart has Jatavis at OLB. I see him in big nickel packages. There's a lot of potential versatility there from what I saw upon studying video before the draft.

    According to this he is at ILB and so far everything I have heard from the coaches and Jatavis himself says that as of now he has only been playing ILB. Probably will add to his plate over time but probably hard enough to just learn 1 position as it is as a rookie

    Yes. Yes. That official update is as of today. Up until yesterday Jatavis was strangely listed at OLB.

    I'll take a stab at it:

    QB: Rivers, Clemens (2)
    RB: Gordon, Woodhead, Oliver (3)
    FB: Watt (1)
    TE: Gates, Henry, McGrath (3)
    WR: Allen, Benjamin, Williams, Inman, Jones, Burse (6)
    OL: Dunlap, Barksdale, Hairston, Franklin, Fluker, Clark, Slauson, Tuerk, Watt (9)

    DL: Liuget, Bosa, Philon, Lissemore, Mebane, Square, Carrethers (7)
    OLB: Ingram, Attaochu, Emanuel, Williams (4)
    ILB: Perryman, Te'o, Brown, Perry, Dzubnar (5)
    CB: Verrett, Flowers, Hayward, Mager, Williams (5)
    S: Phillips, Lowery, Addae, Stuckey McCoil (5)

    ST: Lambo, Kaser, Windt (3)

    I think Clemens probably holds off Mett because he's far more accurate and experienced in the offense. I really like the athletic skill set and size of UDFA running back Kenneth Farrow, and may add him if he shows out in PS. I get the sense that the staff likes McGrath so that's kind of a flier. If and when Stevie Johnson comes back, I would have him replacing Jones or Burse. The OL seems pretty easy until the 9th spot, where you have to decide between Watt, Wiggins, a dark horse, or the possibility of only carrying 8 OL. I have Watt there because of his draft status and center versatility but I really considered Wiggins because I think he's better. I think Carrethers is on the bubble after getting passed by Square but I have him making it for now. At OLB, no one has necessarily emerged as a 5th guy so I left it off. I'm going to be watching Ben Gardner, a Stanford product with a lot of athletic ability. If someone emerges, then I think Dzubnar is in trouble.

    The reason Clemens doesn't hold off Mett, is because Clemens sucks balls. I would even give Bercovici the nod over Clemens at this point.

    I'd swap Burse for Cumberland and Palepoi for Lissmeore and we're in agreement. I'd love to see someone push Clemens off, but I don't see it happening with any of these scrubs.
