San Diego Chargers Contributing Rookies


NFL Mocks is going to do a team by team look at what rookies have the potential to contribute during their first season.  Every year there are countless rookies that have major and minor impacts.  Everyone expects the 1st round picks to make an impact but we hope to point out some other players that may help your favorite team win games.

The Chargers are hoping to make a Super Bowl run this year and they will be counting on a few rookies to make a major impact.

Ryan Mathews- Mathews has had an excellent training camp and preseason and should receive the bulk of the carries this season.  He has proven to be a tough runner and also a capable receiver out of the backfield.  He is going to be counted on heavily as the featured back of a Super Bowl hopeful team.

Cam Thomas- Thomas was selected in the 5th room and was labeled as one of the better nose tackle prospects in the 2010 NFL Draft. NFL Mocks had Thomas ranked as the #2 nose tackle prospect and we feel that he has a chance to be a special player at the position.  Thomas has had a decent camp and is pushing for significant snaps at the nose tackle position.
