Chargers cut rookie OT Nick Becton, source says. Good fit for the practice squad upon clearing waivers.— Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) August 31, 2013
This guy was one of my sleepers to make the San Diego Chargers 53-man roster today. I thought that Nick Becton had more potential than Mike Harris, and he has performed better than Max Starks. He was an undrafted rookie out of Virginia Tech, meaning that he had been seen by all the scouts and none of them thought he had what it takes to make it in the NFL, but I like his combination of size, power and quickness.
I'd like to see Nick end up on the team's practice squad, because I think he could eventually be a very good backup swing tackle.
