Moments after selecting DJ Fluker as his first draft choice as GM of the San Diego Chargers, Tom Telesco spoke with our own Nicoletta Ruhl about the offensive tackle.
Telesco called him a “cornerstone moving forward on the offensive line.” He also said Fluker is a perfect fit for what they are trying to accomplish and is a fan of the energy and passion that he plays with.
So how exactly will he help the Chargers out this season?
“He can help us in a lot of ways,” said Telesco. “Number one, he’s a powerful run blocker, so he’s going to help us out a lot in the run game. He’s also a very good athlete for a big man. He’s got very good feet. He can bend his knees. He’s got body control. He’s got balance. He can get out in space and as a right tackle, he’s going to be a very good pass protector for us with his arm length, size and again his feet for his size.”
