Continuing our preview of the San Diego Chargers defensive line we arrive at the tackle position.
A critical cog in the 3-4 system, the job is usually reserved for one starter who must cram the middle and dominate multiple blockers with the objective of establishing a respectable run defense as well as pressuring the QB.
Luckily for San Diego, in Jamal Williams lies one of the best examples of what a 3-4 nose tackle should look and play like. However, Williams is 33, and beyond him, depth in the position seems weak. Who will step up in 2009 as the heir apparent? Will Jamal continue to dominate? Is the future of the 3-4 in San Diego questionable?
Let's take a look at what we can expect this coming season.
