Hopefully Perry can beat out Emanuel. I think the starting OTTO position is the one that's most up for grabs on the defense, followed by free safety.
Agreed.
I just did another depth chart.

6 DL.
3 LEO.
5 LB.
11 DB.

Major consideration given to sub packages.

All my keepers looking pretty solid.

Weakest links...
Landrum-trending up.
Lowery-necessary until King/Jenkins develop.

Our depth is definitely improving.

Emanuel's not especially fast but rawhide tough, hard working & smart. Seems ideal as the edge setter plugging the gaps behind and outside Bosa. Attaochu is a pure edge rusher. He has a way to go playing the run or dropping into coverage.
Perry was a WLB in college, Emanuel & Attaochu were DEs before they were 3-4 OLBs but who knows, these are young players who may learn new responsibilities quickly under Gus Bradley & Richard Smith.

Default Rosenthal ranks us #8 front seven

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...hawks-panthers

8) Los Angeles Chargers

Seven key cogs: Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram, Corey Liuget, Denzel Perryman, Brandon Mebane, Kyle Emanuel, Jatavis Brown.

The list of defensive players I would rather have in 2017 than Joey Bosa: J.J. Watt, Von Miller and Khalil Mack.

The list of defensive players I would rather have for the next 10 years than Joey Bosa:

Bosa is a more natural fit for Gus Bradley's 4-3 defense in Los Angeles than as a 3-4 outside linebacker in San Diego -- and Bosa should be even scarier with a full offseason and training camp to get ready. He's surrounded by a group of players that covers all bases. Perryman provides thump at inside linebacker, while Brown adds speed. Ingram is a complete bookend to pair with Bosa, while Mebane and Liuget bring quality beef to the interior defensive line. The Chargers are ranked low on this list for the same reason that Bradley's old team in Jacksonville didn't make the list at all. Thus far, this group has looked better on paper than on the field.

Except Bosa didn't play 34 OLB for us.

These writers are lazy.
