Chargers scout several more

The San Diego Chargers had second meetings with several players on Tuesday and reached out to a few more in the process.

Eight o'clock was primetime for the San Diego Chargers. They met with cornerback DeMario Minter out of Georgia for the second time since arriving in Mobile.

Minter has been inconsitent on the practice field but had a solid career with the Bulldogs. He recorded just one interception as a senior but netted seven pass breakups.

Also on the list of potentials:

Marcedes Lewis of UCLA. While the chances of grabbing the talented tight end are remote, they did send feelers out. With Antonio Gates already in tow, the Chargers have looked into classic blocking tight ends to add to their arsenal but Lewis is, arguably, the best receiver on either squad.

The Chargers also spoke with North Carolina State defensive end Manny Lawson, perhaps with the intent of seeing how he would fit as a linebacker in their 3-4 scheme.

Offensive tackle Marcus McNeil also peaked their interest on Tuesday. They spent twenty minutes with the prospect after practice and appear intent on using a high draft pick to retain the services of a beast on the offensive line.

Incidentally, no word was available on who might succeed Carl Mauck. Mauck was at the Senior Bowl - and was all smiles. He may end up with another job soon based on his contacts.
