Chargers signed Virginia Tech OT Nick Becton.

Becton (6-foot-5 1/4, 323) took over the Hokies' left tackle job as a senior and started 12 games in his lone season as a full-time player. His arms measured 35 1/2" at the Combine and he ran 5.20 with a 29.5-inch vertical. While Becton possesses functional athleticism and size to stay at left tackle, he's going to have to get stronger. NFL.com's Gil Brandt has referred to Becton as a "developmental type player." The Chargers need to re-haul their line, so Becton should get a fair shake as a backup.
