Anthony Waters Scouting Report
An All-Southeastern Conference selection for the Tigers, Waters finished his Clemson career with 217 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 22.5 tackles for loss.
Waters missed most of his senior season while recovering from a knee injury that he suffered in Clemson's season opener against Florida Atlantic. Prior to the injury, Waters was projected to be a potential NFL first-round draft choice.
As a junior, Waters earned all-conference honors after posting a career-high 109 tackles, third-most in the ACC.
Before the draft, Waters said it was a goal of his to drafted on the first day, despite the injury suffered last season.
"Hopefully I'll go on the first day," he said. "If not, it's already proven that some of the first day guys aren't necessarily the best guys. It's just a great opportunity to be in a situation like this."
Waters will play for a team that has high expectations this season, despite the fact it changed head coaches earlier this year. The Chargers had the best record in the NFL last season at 14-2, but fired Marty Schottenheimer after losing in the first round of the playoffs.
Norv Turner is now the new head coach in San Diego.
