This video is part of B/R's series "The Rookies," where we take the helmets off the players and bring you closer to their lives and personalities.

He's big, nasty and has lots of swagger.

The San Diego Chargers hope they have the bedrock of their offensive line for years to come in D.J. Fluker.

At 6'5" and 339 pounds, the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft is ready to take on being the new leader of San Diego's offensive line.

Three tackles and two guards were taken ahead of Fluker, so the former Alabama right tackle was ripe for the taking to fill a huge void in San Diego's o-line.

He's a dominating run blocker and now needs to help protect Philip Rivers for the Chargers in order to return to the playoffs.

Check out the video above as Fluker settles into San Diego and his new barbershop to talk football.

Let us know in the comments below if you think D.J. was right for the Chargers.
