San Diego Chargers’ Final 1st-Round NFL Draft Preview
When I look at the first-round prospects in the draft the Chargers have to be patient and can’t reach or settle for a player. Telesco showed his patience and calm demeanor in last year’s draft by getting two first-round talents (Manti Te’o and Keenan Allen) in the second and third rounds respectively.
Looking at the prospects who could be around when the Chargers pick at No. 25 there are three, unless another player drops for some unknown reason. If DT Louis Nix III, CB Kyle Fuller or CB Bradley Roby are on the board, any one of them would be a solid first-round pick for the Chargers.
If none of these players are available, the Chargers can’t be afraid to trade out of the first round. This is a deep draft at several of the major position needs for San Diego (cornerback, wide receiver, outside linebacker and offensive line). Grabbing another second and third-round pick will only help fill the Chargers’ lack of depth on their roster.
With that being said, Telesco has to take advantage of this deep draft if the Chargers want any chance of making it back to the postseason next year. This draft has the potential to provide San Diego with several impact players.
The chaos is about begin, but the Chargers can’t get caught up in the draft day hysteria.
