Doug Legursky a six-year veteran made 11 starts last season for the Buffalo Bills. Doug Legursky was a three year starter at Marshall University and signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2008.

Doug Legursky spent five season with the Pittsburgh Steelers and started 17 games for the Steelers. Doug Legursky also started at center for the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. Doug Legursky bring’s the versatility of experience and being able to play both guard and center for the San Diego Chargers offensive line.

Rich Ohrnberger will remain the team’s center moving forward due to his experience playing center for the San Diego Chargers last season.

If Ohrnberger were to go down this season, Doug Legursky based on his experience will likely be the next man up. While Chargers 2014 third-round pick Chris Watt is considered the the future center, I don’t believe the Chargers are ready to throw him into that position this season. Watt is more likely to be the next man up if one of their starting guards were to go down at some point this season.

  • Though no matter who takes over at center for the Chargers, there’s no getting around the the loss of Nick Hardwick.

    Hardwick despite off-season rumors of his potential retirement, returned the Chargers for his 11th season as the teams starting center. Hardwick has played the most snaps of any San Diego Chargers lineman and has started 66 straight regular season games and 135 for his career. Hardwick was arguably the most vital piece to the San Diego Chargers offensive line, as he’s responsible for calling out the blocking schemes up front and has chemistry with Philip Rivers.

    The San Diego Chargers will have a difficult time replacing Nick Hardwick, as theirs nobody on the roster that brings Nick Hardwick’s unmatched stability to the middle of the offensive line.
