Draft History: Offensive Tackles

Posted Apr 16, 2012

SAN DIEGO – As we begin our preview of the offensive tackles available in the 2012 NFL Draft, here’s a look at players the Chargers have drafted at the position.

Player: Marcus McNeill
Drafted: 2006, second round (50th overall)
School: Auburn
Career with Chargers: Started 82 games at left tackle in six seasons for San Diego, making the Pro Bowl twice. A neck injury against Oakland last season forced him to miss the final seven games and McNeill averaged 12.5 games the last four years before being released by the Chargers this offseason. He helped protect Philip Rivers’ blindside for a majority of each season Rivers has started at quarterback.

Player: Jeromey Clary
Drafted: 2006, sixth round (187th overall)
School: Kansas State
Career with Chargers: Frequently cited as the hardest worker on the offensive line, Clary worked his way up as a late-round pick and ’06 practice squad member. He began starting full-time at right tackle in ’08. The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Clary, signed through 2014, has started 60 of San Diego’s last 66 games including playoffs. He did not miss one offensive snap during the 2010 season.

Player: Russ Washington
Drafted: 1968, first round (4th overall)
School: Missouri
Career with Chargers: A five-time Pro Bowler, member of the Chargers Hall of Fame and part of San Diego’s 50th-Anniversary All-Time team, Washington is in the argument for the best offensive lineman in team history. The 6-foot-7, 288-pound force played his first two professional seasons as a defensive tackle before switching during training camp in 1970. Washington held club records for consecutive games (178) and consecutive starts (148) until Dave Binn played in his 179th consecutive game in 2010.
