Like He Should Be At this point in the offseason,
Mike Williams Turning Heads [url=http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-casey-hayward-jersey]Authentic Casey Hayward Jersey[/url] , every team’s fan base must take each proclamation of “this or that player has been turning heads“ with a grain of salt. Just like this site and any other content-based publication, puff pieces are necessary and are a natural part of journalism. However, it’s still a positive to see them at all because we could be the Ravens and, instead of receivers turning heads, they have Breshad Perriman dropping passes like clockwork.Positive news is positive news is positive news. That’s all I’m getting at. And when it comes to a former first-round wide receiver who was a non-factor his rookie year, I’m sure you all will take what you can get.According to Ricky Henne over at Chargers.com , last year’s first-round pick Mike Williams has been “making his presence felt at minicamp” over the last couple days.In an interview with Williams following practice [url=http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-melvin-ingram-jersey]Youth Melvin Ingram Jersey[/url] , he asked the young wideout what he was working on the most heading into his sophomore season. “My route depth”, he said.This is an interesting answer to me as the usual answers are “my release” or “getting in and out of breaks faster”. Williams seems to be zoned in on what he believes will take his game to the next level.For anyone confused, Williams likely means he wants to be better at the depth to which he runs and cuts out of his routes. For example, if he runs a hitch on the outside too deep when there is a corner route coming over the top, this would eat up the necessary space between the two routes and cause both to become covered.If he was running a shallow crosser over the middle that was too shallow, he would likely not catch the middle linebackers attention, leaving him to cover the deep IN route which was supposed to be open as the second option.It’s a variable not many fans think about when it comes to details in a receivers route-running but an important one, nonetheless.Once again [url=http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brandon-mebane-jersey]http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brandon-mebane-jersey[/url] , it is awfully early in the off-season program to be getting ahead of ourselves, but it’s never too early to feel some optimism. Let’s just hope Williams continues to turn heads throughout the rest of the coming months, like a first-round talent is expected to.Chargers Inactives for Preseason Week 1 vs the Cardinals While the team hasn’t officially listed any players in or out for tonight’s preseason showdown against the Arizona Cardinals, there is a list of a few players:Some veterans are getting some rest while the team plays it safe with a few players who got banged up during week. With Philip Rivers out expect to see a lot of the back-up quarterbacks Geno Smith and Cardale Jones and you might even see a little of UDFA QB Nic Shimonek get some snaps towards the end of game. As for the rest of the offensive players on this list, it looks like wide receivers Tyrell Williams and Mike Williams will be the starters while Travis Benjamin still might be a question mark come gametime. Benjamin missed a few days of practice while most recently supporting a red jersey in Training Camp. That leaves more playing time for receivers on the roster bubble like Artavis Scott and Geremy Davis.Defensively, both corners Hayward and Williams will sit this one out and Michael Davis and Craig Mager will get some run on defense early on. Toward the end of the CB depth chart Tony Brown and Brandon Facyson will likely get some extended minutes and look to put some good plays on tape vs. the Cards tonight. Behind Joey Bosa will be the man the team touted all offseason for his progression and that is the back-up Defensive End Isaac Rochell who will be thrown into the starting role.
