Why Spencer Pulley (not Max Tuerk) is Chargers' starting center -- for now - Eric Williams
They also brought in an undrafted rookie out of Vanderbilt named Spencer Pulley last year, and he proved better than expected. So the answer to the question is what Pulley has done over the last 12 months is the reason he remains the center running with the first unit for now over Tuerk.

“I have a great comfort level with Spencer,” Philip Rivers said, via Williams. “That’s what he played in college his whole time there at Vandy. Slauson was great there last year, and Spencer played some there in that Cleveland game and a few other times, so I have a good feel with him. He’s had a heck of an offseason, so he’s in there right now with the first group and we’ll see how it goes.”

There’s no doubt that Williams is a talented player, displaying professional-level receiving skills while helping Clemson become national champions last season. That was all after overcoming a severe neck injury the year before that threatened to take football away from him forever.

“Taking a shot to the head, I could have died or gone blind. My world seemed like it ended. Football was how I planned on providing for my family because I had just found out that my son was on the way. I was in my senior year going to graduate in the winter and I wanted to play ball. When they told me there was a possibility I wouldn’t be able to play, it was so defeating”, Moore told Elwood.

Burse does have dynamic athleticism, and while six weeks isn’t a long time considering the stage of offseason training activities the team is in, it could give Burse just enough time to demonstrate his value on the 53-man roster.
