In the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft the chargers took TE Ladarius Green.
I can't help but think Antonio Gates when I see this guy. His body shape and playing style is almost identical. Green will be taught over the next few years by one of the best TE's to play the game. Gates will show Green the ropes of the NFL and while he might not make an instant impact, I expect him to become better and better and as Gates starts to think of retirement, Green will be entering in the prime of his career.
With 22 touchdowns at college he can replace Gates' red zone threat and maybe be a target for rivers on third down. If he improves quickly we could also end up with a pair of dangerous Tight end pairing which has proven to be vital for teams like the Patriots and can turn teams into Championship teams.
