Bolts Tackle O-Line Needs With OL Corey Clark
Clark (6'6", 318 pounds) has the run-blocking ability to back up Jeromey Clary on the right side and the athleticism to play behind Marcus McNeill on the left. The versatility is huge for the Chargers, who have only journeyman Tony Pape in reserve at the all-important tackle position.
It is still possible the Chargers could sign a veteran free agent at the position, with L.J. Shelton believed to be a serious candidate.
Regardless, San Diego will give Clark a chance to stick. He was a three-year starter in the Big 12 and has the experience to compete for playing time early in his career. If can he lower his pad level and up his intensity, he could push Clary for playing time somewhere down the line.
The Chargers like Clark's raw ability. He is a good positional blocker and has the long arms and athletic ability to make blocks on the second level. His technique and footwork could use some improvement, but offensive line coach Jack Henry certainly has some quality tools to work with.
The biggest knock on Clark is that he lacks intensity. However, playing with Kris Dielman and Nick Hardwick should work wonders in that regard.
