COSTA MESA http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-a...sky-jersey , Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers hope they have found a free safety to pair with All-Pro Derwin James.The Chargers selected Delaware safety Nasir Adderley with the 60th overall pick in the second round Friday night. They concluded the night by taking offensive tackle Trey Pipkins of Sioux Falls with the 91st overall pick in the third round.Los Angeles came into the draft with their two biggest needs being defensive tackle and safety, which it was able to fill in the first two rounds with Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery and Adderley.“The draft has kind of gone as advertised,” general manager Tom Telesco said. “I can’t complain. It has been pretty good so far.”Adderley was considered by many to be the highest-ranked safety in this year’s draft class but was the fourth one to come off the board. That was just fine for Telesco, who had Adderley in for a pre-draft visit.“All I was telling people after my visit was how it was a perfect fit and how I enjoyed my meetings with the coaching staff,” Adderley said.James made an instant impact last season at strong safety and was an All-Pro selection. The Chargers did not have a true free safety last season.Jahleel Addae started all 18 games at free safety last season but was released before free agency started. The biggest reason the Chargers released him was that he was better suited as a strong safety.Rayshawn Jenkins and Jaylen Watkins also can play free safety, but both are unproven.“The free safety spot is wide open. The starter is no longer here,” Telesco said. “Nasir was a player that we really coveted. His range is excellent and he has a good combination of foot speed and instincts.”Adderley was a four-year starter at Delaware. He had 87 tackles last season along with four interceptions and seven passes defensed. He played cornerback his first two seasons before switching to free safety.Adderley said he patterns his game after Baltimore’s Earl Thomas, whom Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley knows very well. Bradley was Seattle’s defensive coordinator during Thomas’ first three seasons (2010-12) with the Seahawks.“Once I went to free safety, everything started clicking Qadree Ollison Jersey ,” he said. “I think I add physicality and competitiveness.”Adderley, who had 11 interceptions during his college career, is the highest-drafted player from Delaware since Joe Flacco went 18th overall to Baltimore in 2008. The Blue Hens have had three players drafted since Flacco, but one went in the fourth round and the other two were selected in the fifth round.Adderley is the cousin of Pro Football Hall of Famer Herb Adderley, who won three Super Bowl titles with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys.“He helped me tremendously by being a positive role model. I don’t know where I would be without him,” Nasir Adderley said.Pipkins is only the second player from Division II Sioux Falls to be drafted. The first was punter Brian Hansen, whom New Orleans took in the ninth round in 1984.Despite coming from a small school, Pipkins played in the East-West Shrine Game and was invited to the scouting combine. He was interviewed by Telesco and the coaching staff during the combine.“I had heard a lot of fourth-round stuff. I was kind of expecting tomorrow,” said Pipkins. “My agent had said — because a lot of teams had fourth round on me — if somebody really wants me that they would have to take me in the third round.”Pipkins started at left tackle his final three years at Sioux Falls and Telesco said he has the traits to be a left tackle in the NFL.“There are some players at Division II and Division III who can dominate but not have enough athletic traits to play at this level Rashan Gary Jersey ,” Telesco said. “He has NFL size and feet. There’s a lot to work with.”Los Angeles goes into the draft’s final day on Saturday still looking to build depth at linebacker and the offensive line. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Mike Vrabel has been preaching about playing aggressive from the moment he arrived in Tennessee.A month into the season, the Titans are doing just.At 3-1, the Titans are off to their best start since 2013 under their first-year head coach, having won three straight — each by three points.Now Vrabel has a team that just got a big confidence boost from a 26-23 overtime win over the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles.“We’re trying to build our reputation as a team and a player on what we’re doing and what we will do as opposed to what we’ve done,” Vrabel said.Vrabel already has made it clear he’ll gamble on his Titans, going for it on fourth down more than anyone in the NFL. The Titans have executed, converting five of seven attempts. Three of those came on their game-winning drive in overtime .The Titans converted a fourth-and-15 with Marcus Mariota completing a 19-yard pass. They picked up first down on fourth-and-4 on defensive pass interference. Facing fourth-and-2 with Ryan Succop lining up for a 50-yard field goal attempt and a tie, Vrabel put the offense back out Hakeem Butler Jersey , and Mariota hit Dion Lewis for a 17-yard completion. Three plays later, Mariota found Corey Davis for the game-winning touchdown.“It’s great moment, and it’s also building great chemistry,” linebacker Will Compton said. “Guys are believing and leaning on each other and playing complimentary football. The coach believing in us like that, going for it and not kicking the field goal, putting the offense back out there believing in them. It’s a lot of momentum and chemistry for our football team.”Vrabel rewarded the Titans with a day off Monday and game balls all around.The last time the Titans started 3-1, they finished 7-9 and Mike Munchak was fired for not making changes on his coaching staff.Vrabel is the Titans’ third different coach since that season, and they visit Buffalo (1-3) on Sunday sitting atop the AFC South with a tiebreaker in hand over Jacksonville. This starts a challenging stretch with five of the next seven games on the road, not that rookie coach is too worried about keeping the Titans focused.“It’s easy to explain to these guys and show them if you don’t play well in this league — I don’t care where you play Chris Lindstrom Jersey , I don’t care who you play, you lose,” Vrabel said. “That’s the NFL.”The Titans have areas to improve. The run game has been nonexistent except for Mariota facing the likes of Houston, Jacksonville and now Philadelphia. The defense can harass and sack quarterbacks, but they rank 25th against the run giving up 118 yards a game. Safety Kenny Vaccaro will miss “a few weeks” with an injured right elbow, a position where Tennessee already lost starter Johnathan Cyprien to a torn left ACL in August.But against the Eagles, Mariota just started and finished his first game this year after being knocked out of the season opener with an injury to his right elbow. He missed a start and came off the bench in Jacksonville for a 9-6 win.He threw for 344 yards and two touchdowns against Philadelphia, while running for a team-high 46 yards and another score. In the second half and overtime, Mariota was 19 of 25 for 198 yards with two TDs http://www.falconsauthorizedshops.com/au...ary-jersey , no interceptions and a 125.1 passer rating.“When you can execute in the most critical situations,” Vrabel said, “you have a chance.”
