The Chargers are stacked at the top of the cornerback depth, with Michael Davis, Chris Harris Jr. and Asante Samuel Jr. paving the way.
But given how defensive backs are essential in head coach Brandon Staley’s defense, there are still voids that will need to be filled.
One player that has been making his case to earn one of those spots and be a contributor is Tevaughn Campbell.
Primarily working with the second team defense, Campbell has shined in coverage. Not only is he utilizing his size, speed and movement skills to his advantage, the field intelligence and the technical standpoint are starting to click, especially this past Sunday at practice.
“I thought that he was connected on a lot of the routes,” defensive coordinator Renaldo Hill said. “I thought that he was in great position all day. He played calm and at peace. He wasn’t rushed. He knows that he has a big engine. He knows that he has good size.”
Campbell has also drawn the attention of Staley throughout camp.
“He’s really talented. This guy has real movement. He has really good size,” Staley said.
Signed onto the practice squad 2019, Campbell appeared in 14 games – including four starts – in his first season on the active roster in 2020, totaling 22 tackles, three passes defensed, a forced fumble and his first career interception.
Assuming the starters won’t see the field all that much this preseason, Campbell will have plenty of opportunities to carry his momentum into the three-game slate and solidify a spot on the 53-man roster and possibly garner some snaps during the regular season.
