OT: This wasn't considered a concern at this time last year. The team had two talented youngsters on both sides in Shane Olivea and Marcus McNeill. But while McNeill, the left tackle, had his second straight Pro Bowl season -- although his play didn't match what he did his rookie season -- Olivea was a bust and lost his starting job. That could have the Chargers looking to add some depth on the line's outside.
RB: When LaDainian Tomlinson was last seen he was sidelined with a knee injury. But he is expected to recover from the strain without surgery. A bigger concern is that Tomlinson's talented backup, Michael Turner, has gone on to Atlanta. Darren Sproles, the next running back in line, isn't built to be an every-down back.
DT: Jamal Williams is a Pro Bowler and the anchor of the team's stingy 3-4 defense. He also has 10 years in the NFL trenches and counting on him for 16 games next season might be a stretch with his chronic problems to his ailing knees; he has also had other leg issues. The Chargers might use their first-round pick at this spot to try and groom Williams' eventual replacement.
DE: Luis Castillo and Igor Olshansky are reliable starters, but they come with a caveat. Castillo has trouble avoiding the trainer's room and Olshansky's rookie deal is about to run out; not sure if the Chargers won't have to pony up the big cash to keep him. Drafting someone here would be for depth initially, but that role could change in the future.
