As expected, rookie tight end Ladarius Green appears to be a work in progress.
Coming out of Louisiana-Lafayette, Green was known as a pass-catching tight end who was a poor blocker.
However, Green struggled in all facets of the game during training camp.
There were even rumblings on local radio stations that Green could be a casualty when the Chargers cut down their roster to 53 players.
Fortunately, the 6'6" Green has begun to show the natural receiving talent that he possesses.
His confidence has skyrocketed, and he has improved immensely as a result.
In a U-T San Diego article written by Michael Gehlken, Antonio Gates said, "He's going to be one of the better guys in this league if he continues to work and continue to prepare like he has these last couple weeks."
