He might be legitimate to make the roster.

I feel that many of the other guys who the coaching staff says looks good are fodder.

Gates was a nobody UDFA basketball player when we signed him. Good looking athlete but NO college football experience. He caught on.
Not saying we have another Gates in camp. That's extremely unlikely but it does point out the fact that once in a while we get lucky and the Chargers have been luckier than most with late rounders- UDFAs.
We'll just have to see how they look in camp & preseason.

Interestingly, we have a lot of TE experience on our coaching staff. Whisenhunt played TE & coached TE in the NFL early in his career. RB coach Roberts played TE, coached TE in the NFL and STs coach Stewart has some TE coaching experience. As well as our new TE Coach, Rip Scherer from UCLA. It's reasonable to expect them to know if we have what we need going forward.
