Rick Henne and Jordan Beane of Chargers.com did a great job recapping the performance of one of the weaker units for San Diego in 2013, the secondary. Click HERE to see Eric Weddle and Shareece Wright talk about their feelings on the defense moving forward. This is the unit to watch in the 2014 offseason. I fully expect the Bolts to address the cornerback position twice in the draft as the Derek Cox addition was a let down in 2013 free agency.
The biggest takeaway from this recap has to be the emergence of Jahleel Addae. Addae may be the most important player on the Chargers defense next season. If the rising second-year player can become a staple at strong safety, Marcus Gilchrist will be able to provide high-level skill and depth to the cornerback position.
In my opinion, Shareece Wright improved a lot throughout the season in 2013. He can be a top two corner for this team in the coming years, but San Diego still needs to find the go-to guy at corner. This is where I expect the Chargers to look to the draft for a player like Bradley Roby (Ohio State), Darqueze Dennard (Michigan State) or Jason Verrett (TCU) in hopes of finding the shut-down defensive back this defense needs. After this offseason, the Bolts will be looking at the secondary as a potential area of strength instead of the 29th best unit in the NFL as it was in 2013.
The best and worst draft picks at the quarterback position in team history.
