Chargers select Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker with 1st round pick

Name: D.J. Fluker
Position: Offensive Tackle
Height & Weight: 6'5" 339lbs
College: Alabama
Hometown: Foley, Alabama

With the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers selected Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker.

After finishing last season ranked 31st in offense, the Chargers hope they found a solution to the problem.

"We see D.J. as a chance to be one of our cornerstones moving forward on the offensive line." said Chargers GM Tom Telesco. "He’s a powerful run blocker, so he’s going to help us out a lot in the run game. He’s also a very good athlete for a big man."

Fluker started 35 games for the Crimson Tide and helped them win the last two BCS National Championships.
