NFL Nation: Ray Dominguez

Chargers won't have Mathews or Floyd

November, 6, 2011
SAN DIEGO -- A pregame rain shower here at Qualcomm Stadium appears to be over, and now we can tell you officially that the San Diego Chargers won't have running back Ryan Mathews or receiver Malcom Floyd for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Mike Tolbert will start for Matthews. The Chargers didn't announce a replacement for Floyd, but it's likely to be Patrick Crayton.

There were no surprises on the Packers' pregame list of deactivations. It includes: cornerback Davon House, linebacker Robert Francois, linebacker Jamari Lattimore, offensive lineman Ray Dominguez, tackle Chad Clifton, defensive end Mike Neal and linebacker Vic So'oto.

Scouts Inc. spotlights O-line, tight end

February, 25, 2011
INDIANAPOLIS -- Scouts Inc. analysts Todd McShay and Kevin Weidl posted their observations on the offensive linemen and tight ends here at the NFL scouting combine.

They don't see an elite O-line specimen such as Miami Dolphins left tackle Jake Long in this year's class, but it's a deep group.

USC tackle Tyron Smith made the best impression on McShay and Weidl by adding 22 pounds from his college season. Smith weighed in Thursday at 307 pounds. The analysts also explain why Florida interior lineman Mike Pouncey and three guards -- Georgia's Clint Boling, Ohio State's Justin Boren and TCU's Marcus Cannon -- are being noticed.

McShay and Weidl are skeptical of Florida State interior lineman Rodney Hudson, Arkansas guard Ray Dominguez, Florida guard Maurice Hurt and Clemson tackle Chris Hairston.

At tight end, there are more concerns than excitement.

Notre Dame's Kyle Rudolph, South Carolina's Weslye Saunders, Wisconsin's Lance Kendricks and Arkansas' D.J. Williams are in the cross hairs.
