According to Henne:

CB Manuel Asprilla – Boston College

The 5-11, 183-pound cornerback leaves BC amassing 201 tackles, 23 passes defensed and four interceptions over four seasons with the Eagles. The Massachusetts native was named to the All-New England team by the local writers as a senior.

DB Gordon Hill – Sacred Heart

A 6-0, 220-pound safety in college, Hill brings a physical presence to the secondary.  In fact, some teams expressed interest in even trying him at linebacker.

S  Johnny Lowdermilk – Iowa

The 6-2, 212-pounder led the Hawkeyes with 103 tackles in 2014, and tied for the team lead with three picks and two forced fumbles.

What the picks bring to the table:

With the third-round selection of Craig Mager, Tom Telesco proved once again his dedication to the Chargers secondary.

The CB position is already filled to the brim with players so it will be a bit harder for Manuel Asprilla or Gordon Hill to get a spot. As for Johnny Lowdermilk, I can see the former hawkeye making a third-string spot considering that Jahleel Addae has not had the starter experience he could have.

In general though, these rookies are purely reserves and probably won’t get the start unless Jason Verrett, Brandon Flowers and  Patrick Robinson all end up going down.
