Georgia rookie named starting left tackle for Los Angles Chargers




 

Former Georgia Bulldog Jamaree Salyer is slated to be the Los Angeles Chargers' starting left tackle in Week 4 against the Houston Texans. Salyer was selected in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL draft.

Salyer started at left tackle for the University of Georgia during 20 games throughout the 2020 and 2021 college football seasons. Salyer has primarily practiced at offensive guard for the Chargers, but that changed after star left tackle Rashawn Slater suffered a torn biceps in Week 3 against the Jaguars. Slater is expected to miss the remainder of the 2022 NFL season.

Now, Salyer has a chance to play left tackle in the NFL. The 6-foot-4, 325-pound offensive lineman allowed only two hurries and no sacks during his final season with Georgia.

In the national championship game Georgia moved Salyer to offensive guard to give the Dawgs more push on the interior in the running game. Georgia put Broderick Jones at left tackle.

The Houston Texans already have 10 sacks this year. The Texans have a good, but not spectacular pass rush, so Jamaree Salyer and company will be tested in Week 4.

The Chargers must protect banged up quarterback Justin Herbert, who is dealing with a ribs injury.

The Athletic's Daniel Popper broke the news on Salyer.
