AFC West running back update - Matt Williamson
The Chargers signed Danny Woodhead to go along with Ryan Mathews and Ronnie Brown as their primary running backs. Woodhead can act as a slot receiver and move all over the formation to create mismatches in the passing game as well as contribute with some carries.

Draft Grader: San Diego Chargers - Khaled Elsayed
Donald Butler, LB (79th overall pick in 2010): After missing his rookie year, Butler was on a mission to make up for lost time as a sophomore. Has yet to prove himself a top-end linebacker, but has already shown a talent coming forward, even if he concerns you in coverage. Should be a part of this defense for a long time.

Prospect Profile: Kevin Minter - Ricky Henne
Minter’s main weakness is his relative lack of speed. While he does play up-tempo and aggressive, sometimes he doesn’t have that last burst needed to close the distance. Still, Minter is another player whose name has risen up draft boards in recent weeks as scouts delve deeper into prospects. When all is said and done, it’s quite plausible he finds himself selected in the first round.

Meet the 2013 Charger Girls - Ricky Henne
"Every single girl that made the team this year is extremely talented," she continued. "We want to do the best job we can do in putting together a team that’s diverse and will work together as a cohesive unit. We need a great team all around, so it’s difficult to make those choices, so we took quite a bit of time to deliberate tonight. But we’re confident that we put together the best possible team of 28."

Nik Embernate a tough draft prospect - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
The former Aztecs right guard likely is less than two weeks away from an NFL roster. He is projected to be taken April 27 on the draft's third day, but if he slips and signs with a team as an undrafted rookie free agent, he'll do so while possessing a quality found in some of the more successful Chargers undrafted rookies of years past.
