The player who will ultimately be selected with No. 25 overall pick belonging to the San Diego Chargers may be preparing himself in Mobile, Ala. this week at the 2014 Reese's Senior Bowl.
D.J. Fluker participated in last year's installment of the Senior Bowl as a member of the South team, and he ended up going No. 11 overall to the Chargers. On top of starting 15 games for San Diego as a rookie, the University of Alabama product was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team and established himself as a cornerstone on the offensive line.
With a week's worth of practices and interviews leading up to the actual game on Saturday, San Diego's representatives will have plenty of time to scout and get to know the players participating in this year's game. Like the rest of the league, the Chargers will be looking for the next crop of pro-ready talent to come out of the Senior Bowl, which has a rich history of featuring some of the NFL's future stars.
In preparation for Saturday's contest, here's a look at some of the things San Diego should be keeping an eye on in terms of player buzz and practice notes.
