Colledge intrigues Chargers scouts

Boise State offensive tackle Daryn Colledge isn't your typical lineman. He is built more like a linebacker but believes that gives him an advantage heading into the NFL as he can block at the point of attack with his strength and still get to the second level effectively with his speed. It has the Chargers intrigued at his long-term potential.

They don't come much tougher than Daryn Colledge. He grew up in North Pole, Alaska right outside Fairbanks before heading to Boise St. where he played in every game during his collegiate career.

During the Senior Bowl, Colledge was hounded by scouts from the San Diego Chargers who were impressed with his solid build and maturity.

One scout even likened him to Igor Olshansky, seeing a raw player that they could mold with the proper coaching on technique.

Colledge did not play his sophomore and junior years in high school and is a bit raw. With A.J. Smith detailing the offensive line as a must this off-season, Colledge would fit well into the long term plans.

Colledge spoke to us on a number of topics, including his ability to pass block, run block on the second level, his maturity and more.
