Chargers draft grade is out and it doesn’t mean much - Jay Paris
All of the Chargers wanna-bes have pluses, have minuses, and anyone predicting with confidence their ability to transfer their skills to the next level is blowing smoke.

Rookie Minicamp an Important First Step - Ricky Henne
Ladarius Green’s rookie minicamp was two years ago, but he remembers it like it was yesterday.  Looking back, he also realizes that it was a significant step in his development.

De'Anthony Thomas not Snoop Dogg's only NFL rookie - Chase Goodbread
But a couple of other alumns from Snoop's youth league have an NFL shot, as well: cornerbacks Kam Jackson and Greg Ducre were signed as undrafted free agents by the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers, respectively.

Projecting expectations for Jerry Attaochu - Eric Williams
As a group, edge-rushers from the first two rounds of the 2013 draft averaged two sacks and 339 snaps as rookies last season.

How Does He Fit?: Jason Verrett, San Diego Chargers - Matthew Shovlin
I've already alluded to his biggest problem - size. The NFL likes tall, long cornerbacks, but Verrett is well under 6-feet and has arms at about 30.5 inches in length. He can struggle against the run at times when swallowed up by bigger receivers or tight ends. His tough, scrappy style of play can often allow him to make up for that, but the ceiling is only so high given his physical limitations.
