Jon Beason talks San Diego Chargers visit

Miami linebacker Jon Beason visited the San Diego Chargers last week and came away impressed. Linebackers' coach Ron Rivera - hired away from the Chicago Bears this off-season - was an immediate favorite for Beason.

While he went on to meet with the Detroit Lions the following day, the Chargers pick 30th overall and the Lions sit a few slots behind. Provided Beason is around in the first round, he could end up being the pick - depending on the crop of safeties and wide receivers also on the board.

Name:  Jon Beason     College:  Miami
Height:  6'0   (6002)     Weight:  237
Position:  LB

San Diego:
"I think highly of the linebackers' coach. I'd love to play for him..."

Detroit:  "He (Rod Marinelli) was talking about the vision he has for the Lions ... and I got goose bumps, man, I felt real comfortable there."
