San Diego Chargers Select Corey Liuget With 18th Overall Pick

With the 18th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers selected Illinois defensive tackle/end Corey Liuget.

One of the guys who really rose his stock during this pre-draft season, Liuget adds another talent to one of the league's best defensive units. Liuget, who played defensive tackle for the Fighting Illini, will likely play end for San Diego. The Chargers could use an aggressive defensive end for their defense. Liuget should be able to get pressure from the five-technique and give San Diego what it has lacked since Shawne Merriman got injured.

Like New England, the Chargers are a case of the rich getting richer. For them, the question is if Liuget can help put this team over the top?
