San Diego Chargers select Marcus Gilchrist

With the 50th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers selected CB/S Marcus Gilchrist out of Clemson. 

Gilchrist is seen as either a tough nickel CB or a Safety (either FS or SS), and should be able to compete right away for that nickel CB spot. He also provides a little backup for the Chargers should Bob Sanders get injured, Darrell Stuckey continue to underwhelm, or Eric Weddle leave as a Free Agent. At the very least, Donald Strickland might be looking for a job on another team soon.

Marcus is also an option to replace soon-to-be-departed RB Darren Sproles as the team's kick returner and possibly punt returner.

The Chargers will be up again soon with their second 2nd round pick, at #60.
