Anthony Waters Close To 100%

Extremely excited to see what Anthony Waters can do on the football field. Its guys like this that make training camp and the preseason mean so much for me as an observer; even though some fans consider the preseason a waste of time.

Anthony Waters was a top rated inside linebacker before the 2006 college season. He blew out his ACL which caused him to miss the entire year and which led to his inevitable slip to the third round come draft day.

Now as a member of an extremely young and talented linebacking corp here in San Diego, Waters has the opportunity to contribute and possibly push for some starting time once he heals up (and he is very close to 100%)

"I feel pretty good about how I’m picking up the defense,” Waters said. “I still make little mistakes here and there, but that’s kind of expected. This defense is new to me. Cooper and Wilhelm are pretty good about helping the young guys out. I can ask them anything I need to. I play hard, I play fast and I play physical. If you’re doing those three things, someone is going to notice you. There’s a lot of talent on this team. I don’t have to do too much. I can just work hard and be a part of it."

We previewed Waters earlier in the year, and what stands out the most about him is his versatility. It would not surprise me one bit to see Waters play both outside and inside linebacker. He bears resemblance in his style of player to Brian Urlacher, and Coach Rivera knows a little something about that guy.
