A familiar face is gracing the sidelines at Chargers Camp today as LaDainian Tomlinson is on the scene to report for NFL Network.
“The first thing I think of coming here is that Ken Whisenhunt is back. I want to see him bring that balance back to the offense between run and pass. I think it makes the team that much better as a whole. I’m also excited about the growth of this defense. There are a lot of young guys on that side of the ball, but they are very talented. I am eager to see how that shakes out.
I also want to see Melvin Gordon III progresses from year one to year two. I had Lorenzo Neal and now he has Derek Watt. The fullback is the head guy. He’s the eyes and (ears) for the running back. Whenever you have a real good one, he makes things so much easier for a running back. He intimidates linebackers. It’s always good to have a lead blocker. I’ve always felt that way.
And then with Keenan Allen, I think he is a stud. The guy has progressed every single year. He is really ready to take that next step to be a top three or four receiver in the NFL. He is super talented and does all the right things. He works hard, studies the game and sets a great example for the young guys.”
