San Diego Chargers select Alabama OT D.J. Fluker with the 11th overall pick - Doug Farrar
Fluker's power allows him to get away with a few things that could bedevil him in the NFL for a while. He doesn't always anchor blocks, and faster edge rushers can get around him fairly easily. Has to double back on too many missed tags around the edge, and isn't always agile enough to do so. Doesn't lock on and tends to shove in space.

Chargers draft Alabama's D.J. Fluker - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
Arguably Fluker's greatest strength is his run blocking. Many scouts viewed him as a potential guard.

Draft Day Deals, 2010 - Ben Stockwell
Winner: In spite of each team grabbing solid players from the three selections involved in this deal, neither team got the impact from the individual or group they would have hoped for.

Chargers sign intriguing linebacker - Bill Williamson
Smith played in every game as a rookie. Still, it is a worthwhile signing for the Chargers. He has ability, and he should regain his health at some point in the 2013 season, Smith could be a player to watch in San Diego.

Chargers' O-line gets huge addition - Bill Williamson
While he can play guard, Fluker will probably replace the replaceable Jeromey Clary at right tackle. Fluker is a great run-blocker, and he will help this team. He gives quarterback Philip Rivers a big, tough protector. Of course, left tackle is still a need.
