SS William Moore
Moore, a likely first-round pick, could be the physical, in-the-box safety the Chargers have been missing since cutting ties with Rodney Harrison after the 2002 season. He has a rare combination of size (6-foot-1, 230 pounds) and explosiveness, allowing him to punish running backs and intimidate wide receivers.
Moore authored a season for the ages as a junior in 2007, ringing up 117 tackles and eight interceptions. And while those numbers slipped during his senior season as he dealt with nagging foot and rib injuries (86 tackles and one interception), he is still viewed as a game-changer.
There are some drawbacks with Moore -- such as his struggles in man coverage -- that could make the Chargers think twice about drafting him. But one thing is for sure – he's light-years ahead of any other strong safety on San Diego's roster.
SS David Bruton
Bruton (6-foot-2, 205 pounds) is an extremely productive defender, averaging 89 tackles and four pass breakups over his final two seasons. He's also a force on special teams, where he could possibly replace pending free agent Marques Harris.
Bruton will have to add some bulk if he's going to play strong safety, which is where the Chargers need the most help. He'll also have to improve his ball skills, although he'd still be an upgrade in San Diego.
Fortunately, all of those shortcomings can be corrected on the pro level. If Bruton is still on the board in the fourth round and the Chargers have not yet addressed their need at safety, he'll be a difficult player to pass up.
