could go a lot of different ways with their pick, including tight end, but
there's just something about the history of safeties from the U. Phillips has
solid measurables (6'1 1/2", 213; 4.43 in the 40) and good coverage

If there's one
defensive tackle left on the board, Jack Del Rio's going to grab him. Balmer's
a hard worker, but can he fill in for Marcus Stroud, who was traded in March to
the Bills in a cap move? Possibly, but not for a year or two.
If not for March
turf-toe surgery, he'd be long gone by now. It's a gamble, but Norv Turner can
afford to wait because Stewart will be used in the Michael Turner role, as a
backup for LT. If Stewart regains his form, the Chargers have pulled off the
steal of the draft.
