Vanderbilt OL Spencer Pulley Signs Free Agent Deal With San Diego Chargers - Tom Stephenson
Pulley, a 6'4", 300-pound offensive lineman who started at center for the Commodores in 2015 but previously was a starter at right guard, played as a true freshman in 2011 before being granted a medical hardship and redshirting in 2012.  He ended his career starting 37 consecutive games from 2013-15 on the Vanderbilt offensive line.  His versatility and ability to play both center and guard could help him make the Chargers' roster as a backup lineman.

2016 NFL Draft grades: The AFC West just got a whole lot better through the NFL Draft - Tim Lynch
It's hard to argue that the Chargers had the best draft in the AFC West, but when you are picking third overall you should have one the best drafts. Joey Bosa is going to be a starter right away, while Hunter Henry could easily become the heir to Antonio Gates. However, Kadar is right. Where is the offensive tackle? Every team in the AFC West is pursuing pass rushers and the Chargers are absolutely murdered by their tackle position in 2015. They didn't even address it. That makes me happy.

How all 31 first-round picks fit with their new teams - Jordan Plocher
Bosa was our top-graded edge defender in the class this year. He is a very good player in all phases of defense as he is stout against the run and is able to consistently generate pressure in pass defense. Bosa will likely slot in as an outside linebacker for the Chargers on early downs, serving as an edge-setter against the run, while being a movable piece in passing situations. He can rush the edge from the defensive end spot as well as kick inside and create interior pressure in certain packages if the Chargers wish it.
