Making the Case for Tyronne Green
San Diego had one of the best guards in football over the past several years in Kris Dielman. With Dielman's retirement, the Chargers are on the hunt for a successor. Many fans are wondering if the Chargers will try to draft somebody like Georgia lineman Cordy Glenn to replace Dielman. While this may very well be a possibility, fans shouldn't forget about the great job that Tyronne Green did filling in for Dielman last year. He was part of a line that did a great job late in the season keeping Rivers upright and comfortable. He possesses good size and has proven to be a very versatile lineman for the team to date. Green has potential and should be able to compete, as the Chargers plan on letting him. I could see San Diego adding some depth both guard and tackle, but Green should lessen the need at left guard. It should be great come training camp to watch a critical position battle. Even if the he doesn't end up starting, Green will still be a valuable piece for the Chargers due to his versatility. One way or another, he will see the field.
