The San Diego Chargers are looking to fortify their secondary after fielding the second-worst pass defense in the league last season. The process is already underway, as Scout.com has confirmed two more defensive backs have enjoyed private visits to Chargers Park.

Scout.com has confirmed the Chargers held private visits with Oregon safety Patrick Chung and Western Michigan cornerback E.J. Biggers.

Chung (5-foot-11, 207 pounds) is an aggressive and experienced safety with 51 career starts under his belt. In 2008, he recorded 92 stops, 6.5 tackles for loss and six pass breakups. He enjoys being a force on the field, but gladly surrenders the limelight to others.

"I've always been a very humble person. I'm probably one of the most laid-back people you'll know," Chung said. "I like to be at home, watch TV, watch a little film. That's just me."

Late in his junior season, Chung began returning kickoffs and averaged 25.6 yards per return as a senior. He has experience returning punts from early in his college career, as well.

"Special teams are a fun part of the game for me," he said. "Defense is focus, focus, focus and make the plays. Special teams is fun; it's a 40-yard fist-fight."

Also looking to get in on the fun is Biggers (5-foot-11, 180 pounds). He received All-MAC honors for his performance last season, when he tallied 62 tackles, one forced fumble and two interceptions.

Although Biggers was not invited to the Combine, he made an impression at his Pro Day on Tuesday, March 10. He recorded the highest vertical jump at 36 inches and the fastest 40-yard dash time at 4.38 seconds.

Biggers is a three-year starter and knows the importance of showing scouts and coaches what he is capable of. He realizes many coaches weren't able to see him play at Western Michigan.

"Finishing up the season, I knew I was going to have to work out and work hard to get ready for these drills," Biggers told Jayson Bussa of the Kalamazoo Gazette. "The film shows a lot, but you also want to work out in the eye of the coaches. You want to look good in front of them because a lot of coaches haven't been to games this year and sometimes they probably weren't even paying attention to who you were."

Biggers would love the opportunity to make a name for himself in San Diego.
