We have 2 situations here, if we do make the playoffs we get a higher pick where I can see us getting Duke and the other situation we get the early pick. I dont see us really needing because of the positions we need and no one there is worth picking that early. Like i said in the other thread we could trade back acquire more picks and pick up Duke or Rey. I kinda hope we dont make the playoffs because Honestly I dont see us getting past the wild card, games where we are on point and than games where we just plain out get worked on both sides of the field, inconsistent.

What do you think about both situations?

What about Safety? If Taylor Mays is available, I don't see how AJ can justify passing on him. He's got the physical gifts to justify a 1st round pick, and it addresses a severe, severe need. Mays is the best coverage safety in the nation.

I would too, but I don't want to bypass good players. Lets look at the situation.


Right now, I say they finish 7-9. We will either lose Sunday or at Tampa and beat Denver assuming they rest key players. That would net something like the #12-15 pick.

To me, that seems like a prime spot for lots of defensive talent - players like Orakpo, Hardy, Marks and both 1st round safeties are available in Wright's mock (and it's still early, really early). I could see any of those guys fitting into the system.

Back in 2003 the Chargers made a big mistake in trading down from #15 to #30 and in doing so, missed out of Troy Polamalu in favor of Davis, Florence, and Kiel, none of whom are still on the team.

Say the Chargers lose two games, that would put them, probably in the back end of the top 10. Now I'm starting to agree, that this is somewhat of a no-mans land. Problem is, I don't think teams would jump at the oportunity to move up to #9 or #10 when all the top offensive lineman and QB's will probably be gone.

If they tank and lose out, definitely get out of that slot (although wouldn't Smith or Oher make it interesting? McNeill could maybe play RT)

Yeah we had so many options this year and who knows what AJ will do but I trust he will make the right decision. And back to the safety issue brings me back to last year when i really want to draft Kenny Phillips and we draft Cason, Im not saying Cason was a bad pick but that Kenny Phillips pick wouldve solved the problem we have right now. But thats just me ranting :p

He's relatively unknown amongst the casual football fans but Syracuse Jr DT Arthur Jones would be a perfect fit in San Diego in the first round. Right now he's considered to be a late 1st round pick if he declared and I feel with good workouts he could move up a bit and be the 3-4 DE the defense is really needing right now

Just looked him up, listed at 6'4 291. He can gain weight but I have my eye on Ron Brace if he can fall to us in later rounds.

Ron Brace 6'3 324

Ron Brace 6'3 324

6'4" 291 is perfect for a 3-4 DE especially with the assignments San Diego gives them. To me, Arthur Jones is a Luis Castillo clone which would be perfect for the Chargers. I think all of the issues at MLB would be solved with an upgrade at DE.

Ron Brace is entirely too big to play DE for the Chargers. The Chargers like to get some pass rush from their 3-4 DEs.

I think that we should consider Phil Loadholt as a possibility. McNeil and Loadholt for the next decade protecting Rivers would be pretty sweet. Also, I agree that BJ Raji would help giving JWilliams a rest because our defense suffered at the beginning of the season when he was banged up. The 34 nose is the most important position on the field. There are a ton of possibilities for us this year because it is a year devoid of skill position players and loaded with LBs, OLs, DLs, and S.

Do the Chargers have a 2nd round pick this year? I can't remember if they traded it already. If so It'd be an interesting possibility. Although the staff is very happy about Clary at RT for some reason.

I definitely do not want Loadholt. His quickness is way below average for the NFL. If we thought Marcus McNeil and Clary struggled with the Mathis/Freeney, wait until you see Loadholt against those speed types from Indy, or Derrick Burgess, or any other flexible speed rushers around the AFC.

I still want a safety first and foremost, but it looks like Mays will be long gone now. He seems primed to go in the top 10, and if he falls, I bet the Broncos take him just so that he doesn't fall to #16. I don't like Moore that much, and it seems high for Rashad Johnson. I'd rather take someone like Courtney Greene in round 3 and let him compete with Gregory or Oliver.

I think getting OL help is more likely, or (hopefully) DL help, namely someone who can play 3-4 DE and rush the passer. I'm not worried about Jamal yet. He is playing as well as he ever has and those huge 350 pounders can sometimes last for a while - see Ted Washington and Pat Williams. However I wouldn't be surprised if we took a RB in round one and nobody should be. Sproles looks like he's gone. I don't see any way he turns down the opportunity to start, if it presents itself. I don't like it, but it might be Moreno at #16. I'd rather have Donald Brown, Jeremiah Johnson, or Shonn Green later in the draft, but I really have a bad feeling it could be Moreno at #16.

But if the Chargers somehow make the Superbowl and are picking at #31 or #32.... great! Party time! I won't give a damn who A.J. takes. He could take Chase Daniel to play backup FB with pick #32 and I wouldn't care.

I like Raji the most right now because good NT's are so rare. The last good one to come out of the draft was Wilfork in '04. I think we can get a good RT later in the draft. I don't think LB is a huge concern but I agree that safety is. I also think we have to draft a HB fairly high.

After watching Loadholt against Florida I tend to agree with you; but this seems to be a year where Oline and DLine are very deep. I haven't considered taking a RB in the first but that is a very deep position this year and AJ has shown that he is willing to take the best player on the board regardless of position ( See Cromartie, Antonio and Cason, Antoine). At this point the only 1st rounder he has whiffed on seems to be Craig "BUSTer" Davis. Having 2 RBs is the sexy thing to do now; but I do hope that it will later rather than earlier. AJ and the late great John Butler have selected two impact in the 4th round so hopefully we can wait and find another diamond in the rough. James Davis or "Shady" McCoy? Possibly Javon Ringer?

Who should the San Diego Chargers go after? I think the San Diego Chargers biggest needs are running back, safety and linebacker. what do you think we need and who should we go after? I think we should resign Sproles and Meriman

Round 1: Knowshown Moreno
Round 2:
Round 3:

I think Knowshown Moreno would be perfect splitting carries with Sproles, do you think he is worth a first round pick for us?

I have no clue TBH. I don't really follow San Diego (German for a whale's vagina) very much. I don't know what their plans for Jacob Hester are, whether or not they resign Sproles, and how they feel about LT right now. Free-agency will provide some good clues about draft direction.

defensiveback23
01-12-2009, 02:15 AM
I for one would not be unhappy if the team drafted Moreno. We do have more pressing needs at a couple positions but HB needs to be addressed. LT said he will play out his contract before retirement and Sproles is probably gone so Moreno could step right into a significant role before taking over in a few years.

Duffman57
01-12-2009, 05:41 PM
I think one of our biggest concerns is at MLB and i think that there is to much tallent in this draft to not go there the first round then we could go with someone like Tutou from oregon. I think it would also be a great move to trade oakland for Michael bush. I think he is the type of guy we need in our backfield to wear down defenders.

CC.SD
01-12-2009, 07:15 PM
I will do dances of joy for:

BJ Raji
Taylor Mays
Rey Maualuga
Michael Oher
Duke Robinson (yes, at 16. He is a BEAST and would be worth it.)
Tyson Jackson

There is a 0% chance that all of these guys go in the top 15 so basically if we don't end up with any of them, my bad, because my mind control ray on AJ didn't work out quite right.

San Diego Chicken
01-13-2009, 08:17 PM
Can B.J. Raji play 3-4 DE? He seems to be short, but is still a pretty good inside pass rusher. I don't think A.J. should take him just to sit behind JWill for two years if the team is trying to win the Super Bowl in 2009.

More-NO.

I could probably be on board with drafting Beanie to pair with Sproles if he fell, that's too much talent to pass up. But aside from that we need blue chippers in the trenches, on both sides of the ball.

MLB is important to the chargers right now, and Ray sounds great because of he already played in a 3-4 defense.

and for a running back.. after darren leaves.. Pick up kory sheets late round/FA. Will compliment Philip Rivers nicely.

You really think that possibly 4 OT's will be taken before pick 16? It seems that every year a player like that slips

Thunder&Lightning
01-21-2009, 11:52 PM
Oher would be a nice pick. Might not be able to play LT due to lack of quickness. Which would make him an awesome RT which is what the bolts need.

He could workout well and prove he is quick enough to play LT during the Senior Bowl and Combine though.

I think its very possible to have 4 OTs in 16 picks. With that said, if Oher were there they take him no question. Now with the way AJ is talking i think RB might be a need...

One will slip but in all likelihood it won't be Oher. It will probably be Jason Smith, who is athletic as hell but at less than 300 pounds is not a RT. I'd love to grab Oher too.

All I know is if we spend another first rounder on our cursed secondary I will pitch myself off a high building. AJ has his strengths, but his scouting eye for corners and safeties is highly questionable.

Since 2003 when he took over we have spent

3 first rounders and 1 second rounder on corners (Davis, Cromartie, Cason, and Florence)
2 second round picks at safety (Weddle, Kiel)
2 3rd round picks (as part of the Weddle trade.)

and we were ranked dead last in pass defense for most of the year, I think pulling up a couple of spots near the end.

I wouldn't worry about using another first rounder on a a defensive back, because FS is the only need back there and there's nobody in the middle of round one worth taking right now.

It has to be RT, RG, DE or LB. I say DE, because while Cesaire and Bingham are good in their roles, I don't see either as starters.

I do worry, because William Moore is going to be sitting there when we draft, and Hart will be cut by then. I'm actually a believer in Moore but if 2008 wasn't the year that convinces AJ to spend a 1st rounder on the O-line, it will never happen.

zdh87
01-27-2009, 09:21 AM
I think that the secondary was exposed because of the lack of pass rush, because if you'll remember, in 2007, while still not amazing, he Bolts had an incredibly opportunistic secondary. When the Chargers got to the QB with Shawne/Shaun, coverage is a lot easier. If there is a LB who falls or maybe Oher or Smith, he would help the Chargers immediately. I get the vibe, however, that a RB will be selected.

physical d.e. that gets after the q.b. very well for a man his size...fills a need and fits your scheme to perfection at great value here.

2) P. Loadholt r.t./o.g. oklahoma
better fit at right tackle and can develope into a dominate one...can also be very good at o.g.....fills a need at great value here.

Ideally, I want us to trade down in the first and pick up a second. If that happen, I want us to pick up Beatty or Britton with our late first and Moala with our late second. The third round pick should be spent on either a backup center (Hardwick can't stay healthy) or a backup NT for Jamal. I've heard good things about Dorell Scott.

If we can't, then I would like either a OT or DE. I think we get better value for OT at that pick then DE because I'm really not liking Tyson Jackson or Gilbert the more I read about them. I think Oher or Beatty should be there when we pick.

UncleHulka
04-04-2009, 11:48 PM
RB was taken with Hester (unfortunately). And Sproles was given the money. S was done with Weddle(perhaps, unfortunately). OL is the obvious choice, with DE going next. I see AJ thinking that he can still find a DE/OLB hybrid with a middle pick , so it's OL or true run-stopping DE is the first pick. I'm guessing OL. Oher would be perfect, though in most drafts good OL get overdrafted. So maybe it would be best to trade up?

Well it's draft season. I am hoping for some new blood at DT because as much as I like the rotation, not all of those guys will be back next year. OTOH, Jamal and Binghom will be around, so I can understand other viewpoints.

CJ Spiller is the only back I would consider drafting in the first, he is dreamy.

Dan Williams or Terrence Cody would both fit the bill for what we're trying to do.

ILB would be an interesting area and we could probably get great value at our spot. We have a lot of rotational guys but I would love to get someone who could just take over one of the ILB spots for the next decade. I do worry that if Spikes gets brought in, he and Siler might have issues since they were both defensive captains for the Gators and Siler is breaking out a little. I think having that thought qualifies me as an overthinker in this regard.

Could also (shudder) see AJ spending another pick in the 2ndary, especially if Cro gets shipped out.

Right now I think we're going defense-defense-running back in no particular order in the first three rounds. If I had to pen guys in our draft picks right now I would say we'd go Dan Williams in the first round, Anthony Dixon in the second and that we'd draft D'Anthony Smith in the 3rd if his there. But we will of course know A LOT more after free agency (who leaves)

Agree Mount Cody would be nice, we could start playing a 1-6 scheme with him clogging up every hole between the tackles :D

If both Taylor Mays and Mike Iupati were still on the board, who would be the pick?

bergo23
04-09-2010, 11:20 AM
I would take Iupati, if they thought he could play RT...but he will be gone. Mays seems to be falling on alot of Mocks and Media chatter. Scott has him falling to Dallas, I don't see them taking him because his coverage skills are Roy Williams-esque.

I think Ron Rivera could make Mays into a Pro Bowler, and he would be the perfect compliment to Weddle at FS.

I hope Mays falls to us, I would take him over Cody.

It would also increase the chances we take a chance on Marshawn Lynch, despite his silliness, he is young...he could be a monster for Norv.

04-09-2010, 11:29 AM
What about Safety? If Taylor Mays is available, I don't see how AJ can justify passing on him. He's got the physical gifts to justify a 1st round pick, and it addresses a severe, severe need. Mays is the best coverage safety in the nation.

Funny how when this was posted (2008) that was his Rep, since then his Jr and Senior seasons have shown otherwise. I hope he falls to us, he could be the enforcer we have missed since Harrison left.

I still like TM and think he'll be a steal for someone. Problem is I like KE quite a bit as well and Weddle had a very good season last year. Still, I wouldn't mind TM but I hope the running game (OL + RB) gets addressed soon after, and that takes alot of options off of the table at DL too. Now, say we go back one year and Taylor comes out as a junior, would I have wanted him over English? Yes and I think he would have really done a solid job for us. But in hindsight RB and OL should have been addressed last year too. I don't like Vasquez, fwiw.

chargers need to fix the defense 1st. i wouldnt mind if we went NG then safety 2nd round " nate allen "

Right tackle has to be up there in needs but that can be found in round 4 on. RB is the position that confuses me with us. Do we go RB early "round 1 or 2" or wait till the later rounds? Everyone seems to be on the Ryan Matthews bandwagon. I for one like him as a player but not over a player like Jonathan Dwyer who we could probably trade up for in the 3rd round.
Intruiging draft since we have all of our EARLY picks for once.
also could you see us trading for a vet RB ? like a Marion Barber or Lendale White. sorry i rant on, i can talk about the draft for days

Just goes to show how much the system you're in can affect your draft stock. When they asked Taylor to step into a new defense last year and took him out of the deep cover 1, he didn't look so hot. Especially once you throw in the leg injuries he was dealing with.

Mays is actually the only non DL/RB I'd be 100% okay with at 28. Weddle is the perfect safety to pair him with, our D needs to get some of that ferociousness back, and the plummeting draft stock is practically bandwagon at this point. He is a first rounder and is going to have a great career at safety, so if the Chargers can somehow take advantage of him falling I'd be thrilled.

I'm still high on Dwyer and go back and forth on Cody...looking at the last 11 games of the year in 2009, the rotation on the D-line performed pretty damn well, and I'm counting on further development from OG and Vaughn Martin.

In a perfect world, Alualu at 40 would be amazing.

chargers need to fix the defense 1st. i wouldnt mind if we went NG then safety 2nd round " nate allen "

Right tackle has to be up there in needs but that can be found in round 4 on. RB is the position that confuses me with us. Do we go RB early "round 1 or 2" or wait till the later rounds? Everyone seems to be on the Ryan Matthews bandwagon. I for one like him as a player but not over a player like Jonathan Dwyer who we could probably trade up for in the 3rd round.
Intruiging draft since we have all of our EARLY picks for once.
also could you see us trading for a vet RB ? like a Marion Barber or Lendale White. sorry i rant on, i can talk about the draft for days

I'm excited about even the tiniest possibility that Ronnie Brown is available, per a Yahoo article the other day. He or Marshawn Lynch for a third or later (definitely later for Lynch...) would give us a ton of options on draft day. I don't see us picking up Barber or White over some of the late round goodness at RB this draft has to offer.

It will definitley be weird having a 2nd rounder, and a high second no less. It's been years.

Mathews will be solid, I LOVE the pick of the ILB, he is going to be a starter for this team, by 2011 at the latest!!! Stuckey will give serious competition to Ellison and could start, and Cam Thomas could be a difference maker for this teams run D.

If you can come away with 4 starters, even if a couple break in in year 2...it has to be a success.
