On a conference call with reporters, new Colts addition Mo Alie-Cox said that the Buccaneers, Chargers, and Seahawks were among the teams that also made offers (Twitter links via Stephen Holder of the Indy Star). The former VCU basketball player added that he picked the Colts in part because coach Chuck Pagano reminded him of (former VCU coach) Shaka Smart. Some teams thought Alie-Cox could play defensive end, but he’ll be a tight end with the Colts.
While he lacks the quickness to offer much as a pass-rusher at the next level, Tu’ikolovatu was a force both at USC and throughout Senior Bowl week in the run game. Never was this more evident than against Penn State in this year’s Rose Bowl, where he regularly tossed Nittany Lion offensive linemen aside on his way to a sack, seven defensive stops, and an overall grade of 91.0 and run-defense grade of 95.8. He is a natural two-down 0-tech nose tackle at the next level, and warrants an early Day 3 selection despite his struggles to affect the passing game (just four sacks and one combined hit between 2014 and 2016).
The ridiculously small capacity of the outdoor basketball arena in which the Chargers will play home games in 2017 does not include the field, which is regulation size and will therefore require the usual 11 players on defense.
Regardless of position, the Chargers have to take the best impact player at No. 7. If Adams or Hooker is available and the Chargers are on the clock, I think they take a safety.
