Serious Business: 7/28 San Diego Chargers Links

Ranking the top 25 prospects in the NFL, Nos. 11-25 - Aaron Schatz & Bill Barnwell (Insider)
Butler is the only player on this list yet to take an NFL snap, owing to a torn Achilles tendon that ended his rookie year before it started. Heading into last year, the third-round pick was talked about as a potential starter at inside linebacker, which has been a troublesome position for the Chargers to fill over the past few seasons. The team could use his David Harris-style play against the run, and while the Achilles tear might slow him down at the beginning of the season, don't be surprised if he's starting by the end of the year.
