Insight: Volek is familiar with OC Rob Chudzinski's offense when both were in San Diego and it was believed Volek would act as a "mentor," but it appears that the Panthers will go another route.

Insight: Recently-hired OC Rob Chudzinski is familiar with Volek when he was coaching in San Diego. And while he isn't a great option, Volek can probably do a much better job moving the chains than Jimmy Clausen. The Panthers may go defense with their No. 1 pick now that Andrew Luck is staying in Stanford.

Description: Volek remains the Chargers primary backup. He hasn't had much reason to play in the last two years because of the ascendancy of Philip Rivers.
Insight: Volek showed his potential in 2004 when he threw for 18 TD's with the Titans. In the last two years, he has completed four passes in 12 attempts. If something were to happen to Rivers, you'd need to be ready to pounce. (
