With their second pick in the 4th round, the San Diego Chargers selected Offensive Guard Tyronne Green out of Auburn University. He is 6'1", 309 pounds.

Again, here is what Scouts, Inc had to say:

Overall Football Traits
Production2Signs with Auburn as a defensive tackle in 2004 and redshirts that season. 2005-'08: Plays in 42 games, including 25 consecutive starts to finish his career.
Height-Weight-Speed4Is shorter than ideal with a squatty build but has long arms for his frame. Displays adequate-to-good straight-line speed.
Durability2Played in just five games as a high school senior due to injury. Has been durable throughout his career at Auburn, though.
Character2College coaches speak highly of him. A consistent player who continues to improve with more experience. No off-the-field issues to our knowledge.
Offensive Guard specific Traits
Strength/Toughness3Displays adequate lower-body strength abut lacks jarring upper-body power. Flashes occasional mean streak, but more of a technician than a mauler.
Agility2Shows good speed to the second-level as a run blocker and is capable of staying balanced and hitting the moving target in space. Light on his feet. Doesn't always look very pretty but he covers a lot of ground and has very good natural feet. Appears to wear down at times and will get a bit sloppy when he does, so conditioning will be an important area of emphasis for him in the NFL.
Awareness2Displays above-average awareness. Picks up the blitz and stunt consistently. Keeps head on a swivel. Has a good natural feel for defenders' coming and going.
Pass Protection2Shows quick set in pass pro and is light on his feet. Possesses long arms (33 ¾') and big hands (10 ¼') for his shorter frame, which he effectively uses to maintain separation. He's a natural knee bender. Stays balanced and does a solid job with his hand placement.
Run Blocking2Not a massive mauler in the running game. Rarely jars defenders with his punch. Lacks explosive initial power. However, he generally takes good angles and is in position as a run blocker. He also displays adequate leg strength to drive defenders off the line of scrimmage once locked on.
