2015 San Diego Chargers 53 Man Roster

New, comments

Let's take a look at the San Diego Chargers' final 53 man roster heading into week 1 of the 2015 NFL regular season.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Here's a look at what the San Diego Chargers' 53 man roster looks like today, and know that it may not be exactly how it looks in eight days when they take on the Detroit Lions.

Quarterback

Philip Rivers
Kellen Clemens

No surprises here...

Running Back

Melvin Gordon
Danny Woodhead
Branden Oliver
Donald Brown

No surprises here either...

Tight End

Ladarius Green
David Johnson
Kyle Miller

I love me some Kyle Miller, and am absolutely pumped to see he got a spot over John Phillips. Antonio Gates is not a part of the 53 man roster until Week 5, when his suspension is over, so it will be interesting to see how this group shifts at that point.

Wide Receiver

Malcom Floyd
Keenan Allen
Stevie Johnson
Dontrelle Inman
Jacoby Jones
Tyrell Williams

Six WRs is not something the Chargers usually need because Gates is basically another WR. I wonder if this group loses someone (Williams to the practice squad?) when Gates comes back.

Tackle

King Dunlap
Joe Barksdale
Chris Hairston
Tyreek Burwell

Who the heck is Tyreek Burwell?

Guard

D.J. Fluker
Orlando Franklin
Johnnie Troutman

This is an odd bunch. You have two former tackles and one guy who won't be healthy enough to play for a few weeks.

Center

Chris Watt
Trevor Robinson

All told, nine offensive linemen isn't crazy, but it's says something that Tyreek Burwell made the team. They didn't need to keep eight guys.

Nose Tackle

Ryan Carrethers
Sean Lissemore

Defensive End

Corey Liuget
Ricardo Mathews
Kendall Reyes
Mitch Unrein
Darius Philon

Nothing crazy here.

Outside Linebacker

Jerry Attaochu
Melvin Ingram
Kyle Emanuel
Cordarro Law
Tourek Williams

Inside Linebacker

Donald Butler
Manti Te'o
Kavell Conner
Denzel Perryman
Nick Dzubnar

I like Dzubnar and all, but 10 linebackers seems like a ton when you already have 7 defensive linemen, but okay.

Cornerback

Brandon Flowers
Jason Verrett
Craig Mager
Patrick Robinson
Steve Williams

I like this group a bunch.

Safety

Eric Weddle
Jahleel Addae
Darrell Stuckey
Jimmy Wilson

Special Teams

Josh Lambo
Mike Scifres
Mike Windt


I actually just double-checked to make sure that was 53 because it seems like the Chargers got to keep just about everyone that would want to and have a bunch of depth everywhere. An excellent job of building a roster by Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy.
