Chargers sign Fluker to wrap rookie class

The San Diego Chargers completed a couple of AFC West rookie class firsts Wednesday.

The Chargers announced they have agreed to terms with their first-round pick, tackle D.J. Fluker of Alabama. He was the No. 11 overall pick in the April draft.

He was the last of San Diego’s draft picks to sign. It is the first team in the AFC West to sign its entire draft class. Fluker was the first first-round pick in the division to sign. Denver and Kansas City has both signed about half of its draft class. Oakland has yet to sign a draft pick, but it should soon start doing so because it received cap relief on June 1 as part of the Michael Huff cut.

As for Fluker, he is currently earmarked to start at right tackle. However, there has been some talk he could be moved to right guard. Regardless, Fluker will instantly be a big part of San Diego’s offense.
