player. 13. The Chargers are a team perpetually in purgatory. They’re good, but not great, and reside in a division that is ripe for the taking. What would go a long way for them is shoring up a middle-of-the-road defense. And what better way to do that than pluck a 6’7″ 300-pound monster who plays with fire off the end. <p>DeForest Buckner is a big dude who knows how to wreak havoc in the backfield. And while Oregon’s offense gets all the flash, Buckner is one of the guys anchoring a defensive line that can be rather disruptive.</p> <p>Buckner led the Ducks in tackles for a loss last season with 13 for 48 yards. He’s well on his way this year to topping those numbers, already having seven TFLs for 26 yards. In terms of tackles, he’s currently fourth on the team (and was fifth last year) and is the only defensive lineman who sniffs the top-five. He has the power to bust through the line, but also the agility to catch up to runs or track down players on the backend of a play.</p> <p>A Hawaii native and a Pac-12 darling, Buckner would be a perfect fit both on and off the field for the Chargers. They can further sell to the Pacific demographic, while having fans tune in to a home-cooked product.</p>. DE. Oregon. DeForest Buckner. 19
