San Diego Chargers Training Camp Notes: August 8, 2015

New, comments

Let's all over-evaluate talent during FanFest as we break down the San Diego Chargers Training Camp today.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Chargers had an open practice today for FanFest in front of their home crowd inside of Qualcomm Stadium. We appreciate everyone who came and joined us today but let's get to what happened on the field. As always we start with the injuries.

The big news of the day was with Johnnie Troutman at practice for the first time in two days, his starting spot at Right Guard was not waiting for him.

During first team drills that Offensive Line looked good.

It was an up and down day for DJ Fluker in pass protection.

Johnnie Troutman also seems to be taking the demotion well.

This is a very interesting point.

Melvin Gordon did drop another pass today but he looked good with the ball in his hands and running behind this new first team Offensive Line.

Another position change looks to be happening as well.

Even with the second team it is what you'd expect from Kendall Reyes.

Darrell Stuckey made the play of the on defense by intercepting a Kellen Clemens pass in the end zone.

Patrick Robinson continues his strong camp as the nickel corner.

Other news and notes:

UDFA Wide Receiver Tyrell Williams had himself a good showing today.

The other UDFA Wide Receiver Titus Davis did not.

-The Undrafted Free Agent to watch is Outside Linebacker Ryan Mueller. Showed a quick first step and got a touch sack and a run stop behind the line of scrimmage today. Has been consistent all camp long.

-I think this is worth repeating: Orlando Franklin is a monster. He had two pancakes today and one of them was on the Chargers best Defensive End Corey Liuget. The left side of the Offensive Line will be a lot of fun to watch.

-Melvin Ingram looked particularly good today. He beat Barksdale off the edge twice and was somewhat disruptive in the run game as well.

-Craig Mager had his struggles again. There is a difference between how Mager was playing Day 1 of Training camp to now but he's still not up to speed.

-In punt drills the depth chart today was Jacoby Jones, Keenan Allen, Chris Davis and Javontee Herdon.

-Speaking of kicks, Nick Novak can breathe a sigh of relief because the Field Goal Kicker job is his. Josh Lambo had a bad miss today from 40-45 yards. He's also missed a couple in camp too.

-Two UDFA's that are really battling it out are both Running Backs Jahwan Edwards and Dreamius Smith. It's been a very back and forth battle so far.

-Eric Weddle punted today and it was awful, so here's to hoping he never has to.

-If the Offensive Line stays as it was today I guess you can expect this:
