The Chargers again went to upgrade the defense in the first round of the 2011 draft, as they went with Illinios defensive tackle Corey Liuget. The big man had 125 career tackles in college, 25.5 for losses.
Here’s our scouting report for Liuget:
COREY LIUGET, DT, ILLINOIS
Triangle Numbers: 6-3, 300, 5.00
University of Illinois defensive tackle Corey Liuget declared himself early for the 2011 NFL Draft. Liuget’s 2010 season marked his first as a full-time starter, but he certainly made the most of his time. He had 63 total tackles and five sacks this season.
Liuget has the appropriate size for his position. What makes him special is that he is also athletic with good quickness and footwork. He is consistently disruptive, likes to bull-rush his way into the backfield, handles double-teams well and plays with a tough energy.
