San Diego should choose Case Keenum in round seven of the 2012 NFL Draft
The San Diego Chargers have two seventh round picks in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft. San Diego has the 19th and 43rd picks which are the 226th and the 250th overall selections. Former Houston Cougars quarterback Case Keenum should be on San Diego’s radar. During his time at Houston, Keenum averaged 344 passing yards per game, completed 69 percent of his passes, threw for 155 touchdowns and 46 interceptions.
San Diego only has two QBs on their roster in Philip Rivers and Charlie Whitehurst the latter of which threw 49 TDs and 46 INTs in college and has a 1-3 career record with three TDs and four INTs in the NFL. Whitehurst is a questionable backup as San Diego missed out on guys like Kyle Orton and David Garrard who have a combined five full seasons with winning records. Whitehurst will be the number two guy unless San Diego moves up to get someone else besides Keenum in the draft. However, Whitehurst is not the answer as a number two QB.
Keenum would be a respectable third string QB for the 2012 season. If San Diego does not move up in the draft to take someone else besides Keenum, they will still need a second string QB for the future. Whitehurst will be 30 years old by the start of the 2012 season, and was unable to prove that he was good enough to be the number one QB over Tarvaris Jackson for the Seattle Seahawks in 2011. Jackson had a 10-10 record before last season with 24 TDs and 22 INTs. This proves that San Diego should still be searching for their number two QB.
