Update: Rivers will not advance to the quarterfinals after falling to Adrian Peterson in the second round. Peterson got 56 percent of the vote to Rivers’ 44 and will face Drew Brees.

Bracket-style voting for the Madden ’12 cover subject enters Round Two this week.

Each of the 32 teams had a representative in the bracket, half of which have been eliminated. The other No. 1 seed, Aaron Rodgers, also advanced to the Sweet 16, which consists of seven quarterbacks, five running backs, three receivers and a linebacker.

Stay true and keep pounding,

Here are some photos from San Diego State’s pro day on Thursday. Chargers staff that attended included Head Coach Norv Turner, receivers coach Charlie Joiner and director of college scouting John Spanos.

Head Coach Norv Turner shakes hands with the quarterback that threw to the SDSU receivers Thursday.

Turner explains one of the routes he'd like to watch the receivers execute.

Director of College Scouting John Spanos and a crowd of NFL scouts watch an SDSU senior perform a three-cone drill.

WR Vincent Brown watches a ball into his hands during positional drills.

WR DeMarco Sampson makes a catch away from his body.

Scouts ready their stopwatches near the end of the 40-yard dash.

Spanos, who volunteered to time and record 10-yard splits during the 40-yard dash, concentrates as a player begins his run.

Turner, right, smiles as he stands on the far sideline of SDSU's field Thursday.

An SDSU WR prepares for his 40-yard dash, dropping to one knee and pumping his arms.

Turner and former defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, now Carolina's head coach, spend some time watching drills together.

This Day in Chargers History:March 20

March 20, 1960: Owner Barron Hilton unveils Chargers uniforms at his Santa Monica residence. The uniforms are blue and gold with lightning bolts on sides of helmets and trousers. Jack Kemp and Ron mix model the uniforms. Hilton chose lightning bolts because he associated a “Charge” of lightning with a lightning bolt. He also liked the bolts that were on the helmets of the Air Force Academy football team, but wanted something slightly different, so he had the “Chargers bolt” designed to be different and place on the uniforms.
