Candidates: Richard Goodman, Dan DePalma, Mike Willie, Deon Butler, Luke Tasker
Analysis: When the news broke of Danario Alexander's injury, the receiver depth got noticeably thinner for San Diego. All hope of a passing offense will be left up to Malcom Floyd, Vincent Brown, Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal.
Don't even bring up Robert Meachem's name—that boat sunk a long time ago, and U-T San Diego's Kevin Acee won't hesitate to let you know.
The odds of a fifth receiver making the final cut are looking pretty good right now, but deciding who to keep will be no easy task. My instincts tell me that if anyone is going to make it, then Richard Goodman could very well be the guy mostly because of his kick-return skills.
But, if the Chargers are looking for a receiving threat, then they'll have to choose from a group of practice-squad regulars. Dan DePalma has had quite the camp thus far, per Kevin Acee, and he ended up being San Diego's top receiver in Thursday's loss to Seattle with five catches for 43 yards.
