Stanford linebacker David Bergeron has been brought in for a visit by the Bolts. Bergeron, who has worn a Superman t-shirt under his game jersey since his sophomore year in high school, began his career as an outside linebacker before moving to inside linebacker as a junior.
As a senior, Bergeron collected 71 tackles, including five tackles for a loss. He also forced one fumble and blocked a kick.
Bergeron was not among those invited to the Combines but impressed during his workout and that spurned an additional visit with the Chargers.
He ran his forty in 4.59 seconds while posting times of 4.17 in the 20-yard shuttle, 6.92 in the three-cone and recorded a leap of 34 inches in the vertical jump.
Considered a two-down defender for his run stopping abilities, Bergeron is projected as a second day pick.
The Chargers currently have Donnie Edwards and Randall Godfrey starting on the inside with depth players Stephen Cooper and Carlos Polk. The team would like to be three-deep at the position and Polk, a special teams demon, has not made a ton of plays in the defense.
Also, Godfrey has been contemplating retirement after this season and the Bolts are looking towards the future. The 3-4 defense stresses run defense first and that requires hearty linebackers who can shoot the gaps. Bergeron may be another cog to the wheel.
