Football

  • NFL Draft is complete. Chargers got what they needed in immediate help-CB-Jason Verrett-TCU
  • Great athletic ability-maybe as fast a DB-as Bolts have had in years. DE-Jerry Attaochu is big-fast-smart-physical-but will have to learn components of pass coverage
  • Heir apparent to replace Dwight Freeney-Jarrett Johnson
  • OG-Chris Watt-is undersized-but strong-agile-real scrapper and likely will start before the year is out
  • Mystery man of draft is NT-Ryan Carrethers-Arkansas State-tremendous physical speciman-very strong-but will need time to learn to play with leverage at this level-only time will tell-whether the Bolts got a true nose-tackle or an Olympic weightlifter. I give San Diego a “B” grade-based on athletic potential.
