No surprise in San Diego

This week's issue of The Sporting News lists "Five rookies who weren't first-rounders but made good impressions.''

On the list is Jacob Hester, formerly of Evangel and LSU and now with the San Diego Chargers.

Wrote The Sporting News, "This third-round selection may never be the lead blocker Lorenzo Neal was, but he is a better athlete whose pass-catching ability and versatility could be big pluses in Norv Turner's offense.''

This should come as no surprise to anyone around here. The kid was a winner in high school. He was a winner in college. He'll likely be a winner in the NFL.

Nick Saban saw enough in him to sign him. Les Miles saw enough him to make him a feature back.

He may not be a feature back in the NFL, but here's betting that he'll be a contributor for a long time.
