Los Angeles Chargers position battles: Can top rookies start from day one?

Jerry Tillery and Nasir Adderley bring plenty of promise to the team this year and many fans feel that they solve two of the team’s biggest issues from last year. Whether or not Tillery and Adderley end up being the team’s missing links remains to be seen, but how soon will each of these players be in the starting lineup?

That question will be answered soon.

Since both players were high draft picks, it’s likely expected that they will be starters in the season opener. But that may not necessarily be the case.

Tillery probably has the better chance to be a day one starter, but the Chargers also have Brandon Mebane and second-year defensive tackle Justin Jones on the roster.
