San Diego Chargers' projected roster

Examining the San Diego Chargers' roster:

Quarterbacks (2)

After a rough start, Brad Sorensen played better in San Diego's controlled scrimmage on Saturday. However, Clemens has the experience you need in a backup quarterback. We pick up roster spot here by trying to get Sorensen through waivers and onto the practice squad.

Running backs (4)

Kerwynn Williams and Branden Oliver remain in the hunt for the final spot, if the Chargers keep four running backs. Fullback Zach Boren has looked solid as a run blocker.

Receivers (6)

Seyi Ajirotutu will be hard to keep off the roster because of his ability to play special teams, but Herndon has consistently created explosive plays on the perimeter. Tevin Reese and Torrence Allen remain in the mix.

Tight ends (4)

I still think it makes sense to keep four tight ends because of how much San Diego will use two tight end sets during the regular season.

Offensive linemen (9)

I'm interested to see if Jeromey Clary, still on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, can make it to the field in the next couple weeks.

Defensive linemen (6)

Damik Scafe remains on the conversation as a player that could make the final roster because of his versatility.

Linebackers (10)

Thomas Keiser has been more consistent rushing the passer this week. Cordarro Law also has shown glimpses of being able to effectively rush the passer. This position is muddled right now, but should become more clear with exhibition games.

Cornerbacks (5)

Undrafted rookie free agent Chris Davis continues to make plays every practice. Crezdon Butler also had a good week, and remains in the mix.

Safeties (4)

The improved play of Addae and Gilchrist gives San Diego much-needed depth at the safety position.

Specialists (3)

No changes here. All three remain solidly on the roster.
