With less than a month until the 2012 NFL Draft, my inbox has been full of questions from San Diego Chargers fans asking me who the team might be interested in. Although A.J. Smith and the rest of the front office have notoriously played games with their visits (often drafting players that they have never even spoken to directly), the official list of players that they visit with does give us a good picture of what positions the Bolts might be targeted in the draft.
Players that have visited the Chargers
- Ronnie Cameron, DT from Old Dominion - At 6'2" and just under 300 lbs, Cameron is a bit of a project on a 3-4 defensive line. He's projected to go in the 7th round, if at all.
- D.J. Campbell, Safety from California - Although listed at 6'0" and 200 lbs in his collegegiate profile, Campbell recently weighed in at 177 lbs. He's also projected to go in the 7th round, if at all, and would be more of a replacement for Paul Oliver on the Chargers than a potential Strong Safety.
- Ronnell Lewis, OLB from Oklahoma - Despite being projected as a 1st or 2nd rounder, Lewis has just as many checkmarks against him as he does for him. He gives you 100% effort, but he struggles to stay healthy (back issues). He has good speed, but not a ton of pass-rush moves. He's great on Special Teams, but can't play the run. In summary, Lewis is a younger, injury-prone version of Antwan Barnes.
