Ex-UConn DT Folorunso Fatukasi could be late-round gem for Chargers - Gavino Borquez
The New York native’s strength and drive take him a long way. Firing out low and fast, he gets a healthy initial push almost every snap. His leg drive and motor are exceptional as he never gives up on a play. Fatukasi can keep offensive linemen at bay with just his arms but prefers to engage and push to get into the backfield.

3 reasons why Chargers should re-sign safety Tre Boston - Gavino Borquez
Boston was Pro Football Focus’ No. 1 free safety in coverage, allowing just one reception every 193.7 coverage snaps. He ranked No. 9 in the NFL with an 87.8 coverage grade.

Chargers should consider bringing safety Tre Boston back - Will Clark (video)
Tim Benz breaks down why the Chargers should consider bringing free agent safety Tre Boston back in 2018.

How could Broncos QB Case Keenum affect the AFC West race? - ESPN
Since he will have new teammates and a new offensive system that will take some time for him to get to know, expectations for Keenum should be minimal despite the contract he received from the Broncos. Denver was the last-place team in the division in 2017. Is Keenum really the difference between last place and the AFC West title for the Broncos? If he were that type of player, would the Vikings really have allowed him to get away? That they would so willingly give up on Keenum gives me pause here, and Minnesota wasn't the first team to think he wasn't the solution.

PFF NFL Mock Draft 4 - Steve Palazzolo
While the Chargers used some draft capital on the offensive line last season, there’s still work to be done, and McGlinchey can start immediately on the right side with an eye toward playing left tackle in the future (though both positions are of equal value and it doesn’t matter which side he plays). McGlinchey is a powerful run-blocker, leading all tackles with a 95.0 run-blocking grade last year while allowing only 16 pressures.

Top NFL receivers by passer rating on advanced routes in 2017 - William Moy
The second route on this list so far where Jones earned a perfect WR rating in 2017 and tied with another receiver, this time in Allen. The Chargers receiver brought in 4-of-5 back shoulder throws for 73 yards and a touchdown. Jones also brought in 4-of-5 targets but for 103 yards and a score on back shoulder throws.
