The San Diego Chargers are letting the draft board come to them and in return for their patience, their defense is getting better.

The Chargers followed up the fabulous choice of South Carolina pass-rusher Melvin Ingram at No. 18 on Thursday by taking Connecticut defensive lineman Kendall Reyes at No. 49 on Friday.

These two players will enhance San Diego’s front seven. Reyes has a chance to be an impact player; Denver was considering him at No. 36.

Reyes is flexible and can play both defensive tackle and end in the 3-4. He gives San Diego another young defensive lineman. Reyes, Corey Liuget (the Chargers' top pick last year), Cam Thomas and Vaughn Martin have a chance to grow up together, all the while watching Ingram create havoc on the perimeter.

Things are looking up on San Diego’s defense.
