Keenan Allen debuts on #NFLRank at 75 - Eric Williams
"I just want to build off of last year, help my team as much as I can out there and try and lead us," said Allen, when asked about what he'd like to accomplish in his second season.

Training camp MVP is a familiar name - Tom Krasovic (paywall)
It's a big feature in Mike McCoy's system that receivers are fluent at all three receiver spots -- split end, flanker, slot. The versatility makes the Chargers harder to defend. Floyd, as well as Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal, looks comfortable in each role.

Hardwick's Sage Council is a Privilege for All - Ricky Henne
"I’ve learned so much from a guy like Hardwick," said third-round pick Chris Watt, who has spent time at both guard and center.  "He is always willing to help us out and has a lot to teach, so I am always listening to what he has to say."

Chargers season preview: Back to the playoffs? - Gregg Rosenthal
We love the idea of Rivers doing his best Jim Kelly impression in a no-huddle offense where he is calling the shots. Now 32, Rivers has seen it all. He's a top-five quarterback in his prime with plenty of weapons around him, including Donald Brown joining an already-deep backfield. The Chargers present a lot of matchup problems from Ladarius Green to Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead.
