11. Chargers – OT D.J. Fluker

Alabama Redshirt Junior

Measurables: 6’5″ 339 lbs 36 6/8″ arm length

NFL Combine: 5.28 40-yard 12 bench reps

NFL Comparison: James Carpenter

One of the top criticisms for Fluker has been that he’s strictly a right tackle at the professional level. San Diego is okay with that, as they’ll give Jared Gaither another try at the blindside before giving up on the inconsistent (and injury prone) tackle the franchise has invested in over past years.

Fluker is a bruising run blocker, and has the ability to pass block at the NFL-level. Given some work, he’ll be a top-level NFL tackle, even if he’s a reach at no. 11.
