For better or worse, the Bolts appear to be set at most positions going into training camp. Over the years, there have been a few guys who have seemingly come out of nowhere to make the team. There have been even fewer to make an actual impact.
Mike Tolbert went undrafted out of Coastal Carolina and was signed as a free agent in 2008. Greg Camarillo, who is back on the market presently, was similarly signed in 2005. Of course, no one lets AJ Smith forget finding and discarding Wes Welker in 2004.
In fact, that’s why so many Charger fans clamored for the team to keep Bryan Walters last season at the expense of Laurent Robinson. Walters has since been released, but Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd were undrafted free agents. So was Ronney Jenkins, for that matter, and he turned out to be a great kick returner out of BYU.
