Serious about fixing their defense, the Chargers have now selected two potential starters, one at outside linebacker in Shawne Merriman and another along the defensive line in Luis Castillo.
Luis Castillo made headlines when he tested positive for "Andro", a steroid as dictated by the league, at the Indianapolis Combines.
Castillo sent medical reports to all NFL teams showing he did not test positively for it throughout his college career and sent a letter to each team explaining why he took the "Andro".
Castillo finished fourth on team (first among all defensive linemen) with 75 tackles and led the squad with 8.5 tackles for a loss.
Castillo was a three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior at Northwestern. He ran a 4.85 40-yard dash at the Combine in February, which solidified his elevated position.
Known for his hustle, Castillo is known to play until the whistle blows. The Bolts had sent members of their staff to his Pro Day and came away assured that his positive test for "Andro" was a single instance only.
Chargers take Luis Castillo with pick 28
