Scouts Eye: AFC West DLs - ESPN Insider
The Chargers' style of defense is much more movement- and penetration-based than most 3-4 schemes around the league. Liuget doesn't have the height and length that you really covet at end, but he should be able to adapt because of his quickness, power and leverage.

At a minimum, Liuget should provide an instant upgrade as an interior pass-rusher on throwing downs.
