Chargers Power Rankings: Nos. 36-42
41.) Billy Volek (6'2", 214 pounds) enters his ninth season in the NFL and his third with the Chargers after signing a new three-year contract this off-season. In 2004, he became the fourth player in NFL history to pass for more than 400 yards in back-to-back games. He provides solid insurance behind Philip Rivers, as he proved in the Divisional Round of the playoffs when he came off the bench to lead to the Chargers to the game-winning score.
40.) Paul Oliver (5'10", 195 pounds) was selected in the fourth round of the NFL's 2007 supplemental draft and begins his second season with the Chargers. He watched and learned as a rookie, but impressed the coaches with his work on the scout team. He should see time as a backup safety and dime back this season.
39.) Legedu Naanee (6'2", 226 pounds) begins his second year with the Chargers after working his way into the rotation down the stretch in 2007. In 13 games played, he had eight receptions for 69 yards. Naanee hails from Boise State and was part of the legendary team that shocked Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl in 2007. While at Boise State, he played not only wide receiver but quarterback, tight end and fullback, so he had good hands and experience with the ball.

38.) David Binn (6'3", 223 pounds) begins his 15th season with the Chargers as the team's all-time leader in games played (223). He recently signed a four-year contract that will keep him in San Diego until the 2011 season. Known for his accuracy, Binn earned a Pro Bowl invite after the 2006 season.
37.) Jyles Tucker (6'3", 258 pounds) began last season on the practice squad before being called up to the active roster mid-season. He was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week in December for his outstanding play against the Oakland Raiders, when he registered three sacks and scored a touchdown.
36.) Brandon Siler (6'2", 239 pounds) made his biggest impact on special teams last season, tying for second in the league with 21 tackles. He also carved out a niche in the goal-line defense. He was a three-time All-Southeastern Conference selection while he was at Florida and, prior to the draft, spent several weeks training with Baltimore Ravens All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis.
