• Marcus Gilchrist Embraces Switch to Safety

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated May 13, 2013
    Marcus Gilchrist has been taking reps at strong safety this offseason. Gilchrist, who played some safety at Clemson, primarily has been a cornerback since being drafted in 2011. According to Head Coach Mike McCoy, the decision to shift Gilchrist to safety came down to his philosophy of putting the most talented players on the field at all times. While Gilchrist is confident at the position, he admits having a safety net in All-Pro Weddle is an invaluable asset as he prepares for 2013. One of the bigger questions of the offseason has been who will line up at strong safety next to free safety . “I’ve always played safety from high school to college,” he said after practice. Fluker played right tackle, leaving center Nick Hardwick as the only Chargers offensive lineman returning to the position in which he started last year.
