With the eighteenth pick of the 2012 CSC Community Mock Draft, the San Diego Chargers (chosen by Alex Swift) select...
Nick Perry, DE/OLB, USC
The Larry English experiment is over. Caput. Done with. Waste of a pick. His replacement is sitting there at pick 18, in Nick Perry. At 6-3, 250 pounds, Perry fits nicely as a 3-4 OLB. Ran a 4.64, with a 38.5 inch vertical. Very explosive, especially when moving forward. Makes his body small to avoid blockers, and utilizes a wide range of pass rush moves- spins, swims, rips and bull rushes. At his best when he uses his speed to get past the blocker.
Perry is a hard worker, but there is fear that he will be just a pass rush specialist. The Chargers have a big need for a pass rusher though, and Perry could start immediately with a good offseason.
