The Chargers were very fortunate to find Wes Sims available in the sixth round. A four-year starter who played left tackle for a big-time program such as Oklahoma simply shouldn't be available that late in the draft. But for whatever reason Sims slid, and the Chargers couldn't be happier about it.

During training camp this fall, Kris Dielman and Wes Sims will be battling for the job as the top reserve guard.
