Report: Ex-Middle Tennessee State CB Charvarius Ward to visit Chargers - Gavino Borquez
Ward is getting attention because he is such a physical player in man coverage and looks to have the tools to develop into a quality NFL player. Through his senior year, he amassed 74 tackles (49 solo), 13 passes defensed, two sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery.

AFC West Notes: Raiders, Broncos, Chargers - Dallas Robinson
To this point, Vea has also set up visits with the Bengals, Cowboys, Packers, Buccaneers, and Browns, and is widely viewed as a surefire first-round pick. In Los Angeles, the 6’5″, 340-pound Vea would play in between star pass rushers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, and help the Chargers cover for the suspended Corey Liuget. He’d also be considered an eventual replacement for fellow defensive tackle Brandon Mebane, who is entering his age-33 campaign.

Hidden Gems – most underrated players in the 2018 NFL Draft - Steve Palazzolo
Moore bounced back nicely from a 2016 injury that kept him off the field. He’s one of the better coverage linebackers in the draft, grading at 88.7 last season and 88.9 in 2015. Moore has a good feel for playing routes both in front and behind him, a necessary trait when playing zone coverage in the NFL.

AFC targets per route: The notable takeaways for fantasy - Daniel Kelley
As long as Gates is around, Henry is going to have a tough time being a full-fledged stud tight end. Call Gates the tight end emeritus. But as the trend from 2016 to 2017 shows, even the veteran is seeing his numbers shrink. Gates will get the emeritus looks, but if there was any doubt which Chargers tight end to invest in (and really, there shouldn’t have been), this answers it.

Rams make big splash, Chargers take patient approach in battle for L.A. - Eric Williams
“Going into this year, we’re not worried about the move,” Lynn said. “We’re not worried about training camp -- all those gymnastics. We’re not worried about hiring new coaching staff.

Fantasy breakout candidates for 2018 - Scott Barrett
Henry finished seventh in fantasy points per game last season, so maybe the breakout has come, but I’m going to argue he is going to blow so far past his prior-year output that 2017 looks like a bust in comparison. Since entering the league, Henry has hit at least 70 receiving yards or scored a touchdown in 17 of his 25 targeted games (68 percent). For perspective, that’s better than Rob Gronkowski over the same timeframe.
