San Diego's mix of pass-rushers is loaded with potential, but the most intriguing is Attaochu.
The second-round pick out of Georgia Tech set a school record for sacks and was so heavily desired by the Chargers that general manager Tom Telesco parted with a fourth-round pick for the linebacker. In camp, Attaochu will have the benefit of working with experienced pros in Dwight Freeney and Jarret Johnson. He'll also cross paths with up-and-coming pass-rusher Melvin Ingram.
Attaochu's first step off the snap is a definite strength in his repertoire, but as Nolan Nawrocki of NFL.com noted in his predraft scouting report, Attaochu still has work to do:
Needs to get stronger (opted not to bench at pro-day workout). Gets knocked around at the point of attack. Controlled by larger blockers when they get their hands on him. Still developing pop and violence in his hands. Still learning to incorporate power into his rush (more effortful than powerful). Needs to cultivate his pass-rush arsenal.
These weaknesses will be addressed in camp and help prep Attaochu in time for the start of the regular season.
