Tevin Reese, drafted in the seventh round, is improved from the five spring practices open to the media. He's more assertive, better at double moves and more apt to pluck the ball. The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder confirmed his blocking needs much work.
"Kid can smoke," quarterback Kellen Clemens said.
Talking about the slender Reese, receiver Malcom Floyd invoked a well-known undersized pass-catcher.
"That's how DeSean Jackson was -- little and fast," Floyd said. "He shocked the NFL."
Reese is a name to remember if Malcom Floyd isn't his usual self. The Chargers have proved that they are not afraid to work a rookie (Keenan Allen) in immediately if the need and talent is there.
