    Manti Te'o says he feels like "a freshman again." Learning new terminology. Chose to lead LB drills in practice because he always has.

    Ricky Henne@ChargersRHenne
    3m
    Te'o says he always wants to be a leader, be the first in line for a drill. Embraces that mindset

    Ricky Henne@ChargersRHenne
    2m
    Te'o admitted to nerves but felt natural once he got out on the field. More excited than anything else. Determined not to be weak link.

    Ricky Henne@ChargersRHenne
    16s
    Te'o doesn't want to be just a "one-demensional" linebacker. Focused on being a three down linebacker right from the get-go.

    Sounds like a good day for our highest picks. Good to hear we've got some hard working natural leaders with our selections.

    From a personality stand point I really like how Fluker handles business, lets hope the young fella can handle it on game days

    Either that's a very small podium or Fluker is even bigger than I thought.

    While it's not like any team's press conference on the first day of rookie camps has the front office going "Oh my God did I screw this up, these guys suck!", it is nice to see two top picks being commended for things other than talent (the things they were drafted for). Both Fluker & Te'o are being commended for their work ethic and leadership, two things the team needs.

    Hey Charlie! Yes, the practice sessions are at Chargers Park, but it is closed to the public. Unless you know the secret viewing spot on the hill above the park, you can't see what is going on.

    Mid to late July. I'll keep you posted. I usually get VIP passes to attend a practice session with other season ticket holders.

    lol, just where I expect him to fail miserably. Moving a guy inside that has an issue anchoring is a horrible idea. This dude is going to get moved rather easily inside which means he is going to have to rely on Hardwick's help constantly. At best this guy is a 3rd string back up RT.
