Today we review the defensive tackles for the Chargers. I don’t have PFF rankings so you can feel free to share in the comments. Brandon Thorn of Bleacher Report did the grades for NFL1000. That’s where I’ll be pulling these quotes from. Think we can all agree that up the middle, the defensive tackles disappointed. Nobody expected them to be stars. At times, they weren’t even competent. Here’s what Thorn had to say about them. Thorn is really technical in his explanations. I’m not the biggest fan of talking football like that but some people enjoy it.
