The San Diego Chargers got great field position on their first drive of the game. Drayton Florence was tripped up by the punter – actually by the punter's helmet and fell down in Arizona territory at the 35 yard line. It wasn't long before the Chargers were pouring it on in a 38-13 victory.

Big play ability. It is a craving that must be satiated by NFL teams. They are looking for the next guy who can break into the open field and never get caught. Having that kind of ability from the wide receiver or kick returner position is almost a luxury. So when you have had four plays that have traversed 75 plus yards during a college career, you will get noticed.<br><br>That is the resume Luke Powell brings to camp, an undrafted free agent signed by the San Diego Chargers after the draft.
