With the 50th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers picked Marcus Gilchrist, a defensive back from Clemson. Gilchrist is a little small for a shutdown corner, but he has the strength to make plays and bring down ball-carriers.
The Chargers have now taken the second player from Clemson in this draft who is not Da'Quan Bowers, and added Gilchrist to Illinois defensive tackle Corey Liuget. San Diego also has three more picks today, one in the second round and two in the third.
