Chargers Mock Draft Database - 2010


With needs along the offensive and defensive lines, combined with question marks at running back, cornerback, and wide receiver, the months leading up to the start of the 2010 NFL Regular season should be eventful to say the least. The Chargers are a team that prefers to build through the draft, so lets take a look at our Chargers Mock Draft Database and see who the experts think the Bolts will take come draft day:

I personally want Terrance "Mount" Cody, or another good NT along side of Jamal Williams next year. They can split time and really be effective on defense. as far as running back goes Jahvid Best is a BIG NO. he has had multiple injuries already in his career (back and concussions) CJ Spiller will be off the board QUICKLY and will not make it to 28th pick. Mike Iupati ??? unless he or Vasquez is converted to Right Tackle i dont see that happening.

Chris said... Jan 22, 2010, 2:10:00 PM

Something else i wanted to add, people have Mocked Jonathan Dwyer from Georgia Tech to the Chargers. He is slow/not very quick. But we may get a multitude of draft picks for players we can trade and/or RFA's

Rob Zepeda said... Jan 22, 2010, 2:23:00 PM

Chris, I would agree that a Running Back or a Nose Tackle makes a lot of sense with our first round pick. I have some reservations about Cody's ability to stay in shape - something he has struggled with and will be critical at the NFL level. Dan Williams of Tennessee is intriguing, and there will certainly be a nice running back available at the end of round one.

Nahum said... Jan 22, 2010, 3:41:00 PM

What about running back Mark Ingram? He's shown to be a very capable back for Alabama this season, and he looks good running the ball. What's your take Rob?

Chris said... Jan 22, 2010, 4:37:00 PM

Nahum, Ingram was a sophmore, he can't enter the draft. if he did i'm guessing he's a top 5-10 pick

There's no question it is all about the trenches. NT or OL.
You can never have too many top tier pass rushers.
If rumors are true and Cro is on the way out, look for the bolts to add secondary help. Maybe even a CB in the 1st round.

It will come down to these positions and who AJ feels is best available.

Nahum said... Jan 22, 2010, 10:11:00 PM

Oh, I don't know the whole transition from college to the NFL draft procedure, I just thought it was a possibility, but thanks Chris.

And for Anonymous, we still have Antoine Cason, and if it wasn't for Cromarties 10 pick season or 11 pick season, then Cason would have had the starting job, I think. Well, that's what I think anyway, I think Cason is a more physical player than Cromartie, seriously, Cromartie doesn't even tackle, he's afraid to tackle the ball carriers, he's not afraid to tackle them if he's coming from behind. I hope we get rid of him this offseason or atleast put him on 3rd string or just a backup retur man. I really don't like Cromartie.

DUNEDOG said... Jan 23, 2010, 1:35:00 AM

I don't see the Chargers taking a skill position in the first round, unless all of the nose tackles and 'O' linemen of interest are off the board. I expect there will be a run on linemen before the Chargers pick. But if they feel the young studs they already have on the OL will be better run blockers next season, they could do worse than Toby Gerhart of Stanford at RB.

Frank said... Jan 23, 2010, 10:48:00 AM

What the Chargers lacked this year on defense is an impact player. Someone who the other teams plans their offense around. That used to be Jamal Williams and maybe it will be Merriman if he comes back to form 2 years ago. I would take a Brian Price from UCLA or Brandon Spikes from FL. If neither are available Ryan Matthews (RB from Fresno) would be my choice. Matthews is an everyday back with speed and power. Frank-Carlsbad

Jeff-California said... Jan 23, 2010, 2:39:00 PM

Ryan Mathews, in my opinion, is the most underrated back in the draft. His skills prove that he is worthy of a first round pick, and would fit perfectly with the Chargers. He was the number 1 ranked runner in high school in the nation in 2006-2007, with over 3,000 yards rushing and 44 touchdowns on 347 carries. In college, he had 1,800 yards rushing with 19 touchdowns. He is great within the tackles, and although his pass blocking and catching skills may lack, he can quickly learn at the pro level, his work ethic and physical size will make sure of it. His speed for his size (6'0 220 lbs) is also a strong physical attribute for Mathews. I hope the Chargers can look past the fact he played in the WAC. Look out for this kid, he's going places.

DUNEDOG said... Jan 24, 2010, 12:35:00 AM

First of all, the Chargers didn't finish 31st in rushing because LT lost half a step. OJ Simpson's first year in Buffalo, I believe he was no better than 3. something or other. Nick Saban was hired as head coach, and he vowed to give OJ a better OL, and history was made. The Chargers need to get better at run-blocking, to improve much on 31st.
Secondly, I don't think Ryan Mathews is a first rounder. And great defensive play-makers will be gone by the 28th pick. My first pick would be a can't miss O lineman, or D lineman. And then a punishing runner.
Running backs who don't catch passes in college, probably have hands of stone, like most d-backs.
And blocking and tackling are not an acquired taste. Just ask the great Jim Brown, and Antonio Cromartie.

sparkles said... Jan 24, 2010, 4:14:00 PM

I think Terrence Cody, Dan Williams, or Brian Price would make the best 1st-round pick for the Bolts. If CJ Spiller is still available at the 28th pick, though I seriously doubt it, I would take him. But, otherwise, this is the year of the DT...missing out on one of the available DTs will be as bad for the team as missing out on the OTs last year.

Anonymous said... Jan 25, 2010, 1:48:00 AM

You're right about the Chargers running woes not related to L.T. so much as a sub-par Offensive line. O.J.'s average yards per carry his rookie season was 3.9, and he was above that average for the next 9-10 years, going below it only during his last two years, including his "farewell tour" in San Francisco.
The new rule changes have fundamentally and especially changed the game to favor the pass. It makes for many more dramatic endings and keeps the patrons (especially that "at home" demographic) in their lazyboys longer, just waiting for the next commercial. I'd explain in more detail, but now a word from our sponsor...
Go BOLTS!

I prefer the Chargers draft nose tackle Terrance Cody of Alabama ... good nose tackles aren't found in every draft and this guy is good.

DUNEDOG said... Jan 26, 2010, 12:14:00 AM

Here's how I see AJ's perspective on the offense, as pertains to the draft.
LT: McNeill, LG: Dielman, C: Hardwick, RG: Vasquez, RT: Clary & Dombrosky, and Mrkowsky(sic), backing up Center & RG.
'O' lineman in the first round. We are fine at all the skill positions, except at RB.
Whether AJ takes a, RB or NT with the first pick, will depend on who is within' reach. He may package Cromartie with our 28th pick, to move up for an impact player, at either position. Or he may trade down to get an early 2nd roung pick and a 3rd or 4th round pick.
He may also draft a safety and/or a corner, as we could big, hard hitting safety, and a corner, to replace Cromartie.

Anonymous said... Jan 26, 2010, 6:06:00 PM

Here is who I would like to see the Charger's pick up:

1. Dan Williams NT: Great built, strength and quickness. Highly self motivated and very hard to keep at bay.
2. Ryan Matthews RB: I was really high on Dwyer, but the more I watch Mathews the more I love him. We don't need a Spiller or a Best. Matthews has great size, speed and power. A young LT. LT did come from TCU who is now part of the WAC.
3. Micah Johnson ILB: We have been weak at this position for a long time. Micha is a sure tackler, once he has his hand's on you it's over. Very good player with a lot of upside and a great charecter.
4. Javier Arenas DB: This guy plays very physical for a Corner. Not afraid to lower shoulders and lay the wood. Also was a good return man for Alabama. I would love to see this guy in a Charger's uniform. Always make's around the ball. Great instincts. Could challenge both Cason and Cromartie for the 2nd position opposite of Jammer.
5. Traded to Texans
6. Clifton Geathers 34 DE: Not a lot of people have herd of this guy, but he's a beast. A great fit for the 34 DE. He's got long arms, very explosive off the line and quick. We have been lacking at DE for a long time. We need someone like Geathers on the opposite end of Castillo. I also say we need to groom V. Martin to be a DE to slowly take over for Castillo. He's better suited there than a NT.

I like Terrence Cody, but question his work ethic. The guy is an absolute beast, but seem's lazy at times. I was very high on him, but would much rather have a guy like Dan Williams. I think Williams will be a force in the next level.

Brian said... Jan 30, 2010, 12:57:00 PM

@ anonymous...TCU is not a part of the WAC. It is in the Mountain West. Also, Castillo is signed for 5 years, as I recall. They aren't looking to replace him. I would disagree about ILB being a very weak position on the defense. Cooper, Dobbins, Burnett, and co. have been a highlight for our D. Finally, while I like Javier Arenas, I am very unimpressed by his speed. His 40-time is the slowest among projected drafted CBs.

That "walterfootball" site doesn't even deserve to be recognized. Their projections aren't even worth reading. WHY would the Chargers look to spend their first pick on a FS who gets lost in coverage? Weddle's development has been spectacular. That would be a wasted pick, if ever there was one.

meatcutterss1 said... Jan 30, 2010, 9:03:00 PM

The Chargers need a RB big time. Dwyer,Mathews are big enough to play every down in the NFL. Spiller is to small,Jahyid has been hurt too much, concussions! Remmeber what happen to Humpheries. We already have Sprioles for quickness. Than draft a nose tackle, than sign Sizemore from Oakland (Free Agent). Pick up a OLB in the Draft, trade Merriman for Draft Picks this year(hasn't showed enough since he stop using steriods)not worth the money he getting payed for.Most important get a new O-Line coach. Someone who lite a fire in that O-Line rear in. Ed

Brian said... Jan 30, 2010, 10:00:00 PM

@ meatcutters...why do you think 5-11/195 lbs. isn't big enough to play every down in the NFL? Barry Sanders was 5-8/200. Chris Johnson is 5-11/200. Maurice Jones-Drew is 5-7/200. Jamaal Charles is 5-11/195. I don't think your comment made much sense.

chargersfan/http://www.bolthype.com/2010/01/chargers-mock-draft-database-2010.html#comment-form... i think we should get ryan matthews in the first round, he could be gone in the late second round. we need: RB, DE/DT, CB, OT, BEST AVALIABLE, most likely another rb. chargers could not run well because we had a banged up o-line, very slow l.t., and a small sproles. teams that can run have 2 legitimate backs. we should consider drafting an rb and getting one in free agency to be in a rotation, no one rb can replace l.t. right away

chargersfan/http://www.bolthype.com/2010/01/chargers-mock-draft-database-2010.html#comment-form...most see cromartie and merrimen gone. i hope we can bring back merrimen, it takes AT LEAST a year and a half to start coming back to form after a torn ACL. cromartie, well, what ever happens happens. i hope we retain him and let him and cason battle for the starting role. maybe that way he will learn to tackle. sproles probably comes back, but we still need to get 2 more rb's because l.t. is gone and we nee 2 legit backs, sproles is a good returner and 3rd rb incase of injury.

chargersfan/http://www.bolthype.com/2010/01/chargers-mock-draft-database-2010.html#comment-form...spiller has great speed and would be a great returner, but he is too much like reggie bush. both return specialist, not very big. cut back too much, in the NFL, spiller won't be able to do that. spiller would make a great offbeat back for a team in need of a rotation, if we get spiller, we would need an tough back to compliment him, he looks injury prone.

Anonymous said... Jan 31, 2010, 10:57:00 PM

Chargers have great offense.We can pass on anyone. What we can't do is pass rush anybody. WE need a DT/NT & OLB/DE hopefully impact players. A runnibg back after that,than an OT. Chargers will draft some surprises they are cheaper to sign.

ToddDBFin Cali. said... Feb 1, 2010, 8:05:00 PM

After watching the Senior Bowl and wanting to see Cody play well, I was very disappointed to see him at 370+ lbs. He looked slow, couldn't penetrate the OL, and was pushed around. ( We should draft that whole OL, LOL).
So I started watching the other kids at DT. None stood out as much as LaMarr Houston did. He is a dude we could likely pick up in the 2nd round.

I to would not go RB in the first round. A RB in round one will cost us to much upfront but more in a couple years when he renegotiates a deal which if he is good will happen if we draft him in the 3rd round.

I would go for Brandon Graham DE from Michagan #1,this kid is an AJ Smith type player he is only 6-1 270 but he makes plays, he works hard every down and gets everything he can out of himself. You will love this kid if he comes here, and I'm an OHIO STATE fan saying this ;-). Then go with Houston #2.

I would pick up a kid like Ben Tate RB from Auburn at #3, never fumbled the ball at Auburn in 4 years, rushed for over 1,300 yards last year and 12 TD's, 4.50 40 speed, strong kid 5-11 220.

Then a good RT in the 4th. Someone like Jared Veldheer from Hillsdale College. No joke this kid is a monster 6-8 325 and a good RT, he is also already a CHARGER because that is Hillsdales mascot. Probably be gone before that. I would pick up a FS in the 5th round.

I like Robert Johnson from Utah, he is a big kid at 6-2 215 and a good tackler and 4.55 speed in the 40, he would also be reunited with former teammate Eric Weddle SS.

We have no 6th round pick it goes to Houston for Travis Johnson.

7th round take a WR that hasn't been in a car wreck and can actually play for us. I like another Ute here. We can pick up David Reed, he is 6-0 190 and runs a 4.5 40. First Team All Mountain West player and a very good #2 WR. Comes from a pro style program that throws a ton.

That would IMO be a very strong draft with very good players that can come in a play now.

What's up Jeff?

Anonymous said... Feb 2, 2010, 1:59:00 PM

Round #1- De-Brandon Graham- We need pressure from the end.
Round#2- Dt-Lamarr Houston- another stud on the d-line
Round#3-4 Rb- Lagarette Blount- A beast of a running back. I'd rather see him with the ball on a 3rd and 3 pounding the rock then L.T. or Sproles.
After these three who cares.

Anonymous said... Feb 2, 2010, 8:35:00 PM

I feel we need some trades: Merriamen. Why? Injury or no injury he hasn't showed the form he had 2 yrs ago. Steriods make alot difference in performance, ask Mark McQuire. Plus A.J. tired of his private life adventures. Next Cormartie, Chargers can't afford ($) his gambling stlye. He doesn't like to hit or tackle. One or two wild interceptions per year doesn't take us to the Superbowl. Than we have Buster Davis: Can't even make the return punts or kickoffs squad ,he is never going to break the WR line up. We could get some more draft picks this year or next year for them, or some young players in exchange. Just make sure we trade them to a NFC team.

Anonymous said... Feb 3, 2010, 2:35:00 PM

we could possible pick up blount for running back in 3rd or 4th round. he is a big powerful back. not quick quick but when he gets rolling his runs over defenders. i was really dissapointed in terrance cody. he was out of shape and like someone else posted earlier, he was slow and got pushed around. brian price would be nice or graham.

Jeff said... Feb 10, 2010, 7:43:00 PM

Package Cromartie, Castillo, and Floyd for the first pick in the draft and take the monster from Nebraska.

Jeff said... Feb 10, 2010, 7:44:00 PM

Also sign Willis Magahee and get some well seasoned veteran legs to carry the rock to the SB in 2011.

Brian said... Feb 10, 2010, 8:20:00 PM

@jeff...getting rid of 3 of the team's proven better players in the hopes of getting a #1 pick, using that pick to draft a kid that isn't all that well-suited to our kind of defense, and then signing a shaky draft pick on the hopes that he will have more of an effect for the Chargers than he EVER did for the Ravens...that's the opposite of a solid plan to get to the super bowl! Furthermore, you needn't look any further than those comments to support the idea that you would NOT make a good GM.

Playoff teams trying to reach the next level need to tweak a few things, plug up some holes, and make minor adjustments to gameplans. Cashing in the entire payroll and trying to start all over is a move for teams in positions like the Rams, Lions, Browns, et al.

Jeff said... Feb 10, 2010, 8:53:00 PM

Cromartie cant tackle and is in soft coverage (15 yards off the ball) on every play, #93 has 4 1/2 sacks in 2 1/2 seasons and he is the highest paid player on the team. He also has #56+#95 lined up on his hip on every down and cant stop the run or get to the QB. If it wasn't for Gates and Jackson getting double team on every play you wouldn't know who this kid(Floyd) is Buster Davis is a much better athlete and will develop into a fine NFL player. These guys are over paid and low production. The have trade value. That kid is a monster and there hasn't been a DT like this come out since Jamal Williams. Don't worry A.J. wont do anything that will make sense.

Jeff said... Feb 10, 2010, 8:57:00 PM

I might not make a good G.M but I make a good season ticket holder( 23 years). I'm entitled to my opinion. Your entitled to yours. Its a blog room dumb ass.You obviously don't know a single thing about football.

Brian said... Feb 10, 2010, 10:11:00 PM

Cromartie doesn't play off receivers...the Chargers play too much zone (especially earlier this season). Yes, he's afraid of big contact, but he's still one of the better cover corners in the league. Unless Cason comes a long way in the offseason, or Hughes really surprises everyone next year, Cro's the best we've got to play opposite Jammer.

For a season ticket holder, I'm surprised you managed to hallucinate and see BOTH OLBs lining up over one DE on ever play. I could count the number of times Merriman lined up on his side on one hand! That's a patently ridiculous assertion. And Phillips is a HORRIBLE run-stopping LB. He's a pass-rusher/pursuit guy. Castillo was the only strong run-defensive presence on the line. Watch some game-film sometime! Offenses stopped trying to run to his spot (only 10% of run plays over the season), and they averaged about 1.5 yards less per carry when going at Castillo.

M-80 is so much better than Craig "bust" Davis it isn't even funny. What a waste of 1st-rounder salary that kid is! "...will develop..."? It's been 3 years! He still hasn't amounted to ANYTHING! He's been passed on the depth chart by an undrafted guy and a 5th-round F-back, both from mountain schools. Floyd makes plays no one else can make. He's worth his own pay PLUS Davis'. Your statement should have been, "without Jackson and Gates on the team, M-80 would undoubtedly be a 1,000-yard receiver."

There is nothing even remotely similar between Suh and J-Will! We're talking a difference of 50 lbs.!!!! Ndamakong will make a fantastic addition to the 4-3 defense of the Rams, but he'd be a waste trying to hold the middle of a 3-4 like ours. It wouldn't be fair to him, or to us.

I'm sorry that a dumbass who doesn't know a single thing about football had to explain such simple concepts to a 23-year season ticket holder.

@ToddDBFin Cali

i love this mock draft. If Dan Williams becomes avaliable at no. 28 or we can trade up i say him in 1st round. if not Jared Odrick is a good choice too. I haven't had time to check out LaMarr Houston, but Cam Thomas from UNC is a good Nose Tackle that may be avaliable at our 2nd round or if we have 2 2nd round picks. I really like Ben Tate.

Jeff said... Feb 20, 2010, 1:29:00 PM

Brian, Not only have I been a season ticket holder but was on the sidelines for 3 of our home games this year. I have several players as friends and know the Spanos family quite well. So I'm privileged to more than your fat ass sitting on the couch burping your opinions. You don't know anything at all. Cromartie is on the trading block and has been for a year with no takers, why? I guess you know right? #93 is a on going joke on the team because he's blown off the line of scrimmage on nearly every play. We need a monster in the middle or anything but the 3 down guys who gave us nothing. In fact they probably exposed #31 for what he really is. A " Jag" but you probably don't even know what that means. "just a guy". We don't need just a guy when the opposing QB's had more time to throw the pass from just one other team in the NFL. The Lambs. May I suggest you find a very competent surgeon in the area you live in and have your head removed from your ass.

44th frm the pats (Cam thomas NT north carolina)
47th from the pats (Anthony Dixon RB Mississippi ST.)
60th Myron Rolle (Safety FSU)

Whiskeypete said... Feb 22, 2010, 7:27:00 PM

hoping and praying SD gets D Williams at NT and R Matthews at RB to fill those two slots. not sold on T Cody, obvious concerns over stamina and dedication. Spiller and Best I just don't see as every down backs. Both of them will fit best in a combo situation with a bigger back. Not a fan of Cro's declining game, but I think by the time they get to address CB in round 3 or 4 it's likely they won't find anyone with as much game as Cro. Would rather see them take a shot with this pick to add depth for the OL, or even try upgrade FS/SS.

@isaac i would like this mock draft more if we could get Dan Williams. BUT I am so glad that Cam Thomas is finally getting more recognition. He is a very solid player.

With recent news from SDUT that J-Wall could be cut because of salary, we have to get Dan Williams.

2nd Round - Lamarr Houston DE
2nd Round - Kyle Calloway OT
3rd Round - Montario Hardesty RB
4th Round - Koa Misi OLB
5th Round - Myron Rolle SS
7th Round - Dorin Dickerson FB

I'm sorry i find that Ryan Matthews would be a terrible pick. For the past few drafts the Chargers have taken a chance and drafted someone they thought is "underrated". Ryan Matthews is not even underrated. Frankly he sucks. If we pick him he will turn out like Larry English (Even though its only been a year i dont see any promise in him).

Anonymous said... Feb 26, 2010, 12:05:00 PM

T.Cody no way!!! Did you see how out of shape hs has his body! My god I haven't see a football player in that condition since H.S. JV tryouts. He is a big I mean a big risk. The Chargers doesn't need a flashy back. Try to remmeber the Chargers are no longer a running team first. They are a passing team now. Thats why L.T. didn't sign for less money. Since Marty left,and Norv came, L.T.'s attempts have gone down quite a bit. That means L.T. would have not gotten a chance to set more records. Why because the Chargers are going to be a passing team like they always been before L.T. arrival. WE need a DT/DE than a OT, At last a RB, than a CB. But always keep the door open to pick the best sthelete for these poitions regardless of the round.

Anonymous said... Feb 26, 2010, 12:27:00 PM

Hey Jeff, You're suggestion sounds good to me. I always wondered what happen to B.Davis. I thought he was a bust, and never could understand why they kept him. Floyd? Why not Jackson? You know he going to end up in jail or get killed in a car accident. This guy gets pulled over before the Jets playoff game. Driving with a suspended license (DUI). Driving with music too loud. Hello! If you are driving without a valid license common sense tells you don't draw attention to yourself while you are driving. Tell you what, Jackson can't handle the attention(fame?)he gets. It's gone to his head. You can tell by his actions off the field. Trade him, keep Folyd.

Please do not waste our first pick on a running back. we could get a a rb in the second or even third( Blount, Gerhart, mcknight....)if terrence cody can get in shape that should be a lock if not DT jared odrick, LB jerry hughes, S taylor mays, DT dan williams, CB kyle wilson (if cro is traded) would all make great picks. we did fine on offense last year without a running game we will be fine next year DEFENSE DEFENSE DEFENSE!!!!

totally agree with you if we get stuck at 28 I think Cody is probably a lock. But dont be sutprised if hes not. All this talk that hes out of shape. PLEASE!!! I think a whole lot of GM;s as blowing hot air. he might not pass the SEXY TEST!!!lol but FILM DOESNT LIE he a FORCE!!

The real question is if you dont go 1st rd NT or RB(much to high not) what direction do you go????

I go JERRY HUGHES OLB TCU(legit superstar potential) or trade down.

@ Jeff has some issues. Must have run out of his medication. He hasn't been on the sideline, and probably isn't a season ticket holder. I wouldn't mind him, Brian.

I will just say one name. RYAN MATHEWS. If he is there, we have to take him. Perfect back to run in our new offense. Jamal Williams didn't play the entire season last year. We still went to the playoffs. We still have the same defense we used all last season. But we don't have a RB that can run 3/4 of the running plays. We can trade up for the 2nd rnd #2, we will get a DT. Nobody really wants Cody. Who cares what he weighs in. He not going to run 40yds, not even 15 yds. to make a play. His job will be to plug up the middle. Drawing a double team that will let a linebacker free to make the play.Do you think that Jamal Williams weighs 350 lbs during the season? Comon no way. If Cody plugs up the middle on every play, who cares how much he weighs.

LaMarr Houston may be a beast of a DT but he is undersized to play NT in a 3-4 he maybe able to switch to a DE. Cody has had weight and motivation issues, althought he has lost a bit lately. For such a big guy he seems to get pushed around alot and at times lacks leverage. Seahawks are showing interest in Whitehurst (we have a third round tender) Instead of the third round, i'd like to see if we could swap positions in the first round, their 14th for our 28th plus whitehurst on draft day if williams is still there (unlikely but you never know)It may be more likely that we can swap second round picks with seattle. If that happens, I'd take Cody in the 1st then a RB in the second (matthews) Brandon Graham is also a bit undersised for a 3-4 DE. You want more of a run stopper in a 3-4 end than a pass rush (that comes from the OLB's).

RB and NT, easy fix. Package some 3rd and 28th pick to move up and get Dan Williams or best D-Line man and with the 2cnd pick get Matthews or Dwyer. A.J. Smith won't give up 3rd round picks, so no Dan Williams. Next best thing would be to get Matthews at 28 then Cody or Tyson at 40. or Odrick at 28 and Matthews or Dwyer at 40. I can live with Dan Williams, (Dwyer-Matthews, don't think any one needs a RB between 28 and 40). Then in later rounds add OL help. Ellison needs to step the F up this year at saftey!

BENJAMIN TATE = DIAMOND IN THE RUFF. Get top tier defensive players with first two picks and then get tate with the 3rd.I think tate is a complete package. Don't be suprised if you see chargers skip on mathews in round one. Hahaha. You watch. AJ shocks everyone every year. ahaha you watch.

I agree with a few posts back. Get the best defenders you can in the 1st and 2nd round and then go rb. Remember, we went 13-3 with crap for running. We lost in the playoffs because we couldn't step up and shut them down.

I think Cody will fall to us at 40. There is a possiblity that Dan Williams might fall to us at 28. If the Dolphins go WR or pass rushing OLB then he could fall through them though i don't think this is as likely as Ryan Matthews getting past Houston. After all they have to face Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne every year and are currently without a true number 1 CB now that Daunta Robinson is gone. They also have other needs and can pick up a rb later on in the draft.

So what could easily happen could be Matthews at 28 and Cody at 40 solving our 2 biggest draft needs.
A bit more of a stretch would be Dan Williams at 28 then a mid round prospect who doesn't get picked up at 40 (Maurkice Pouncey springs to mind as a likely candidate). Then the best availabe rb in the 3rd.

if D. williams is there, i think there is no question who to take.

if there is another good OL prospect that they think will stabilize the right side, i think they could go for that one.

if cody can play ALL 1st and 2nd downs and he eats up double blocks to get the D into 3rd and longs, i think you have to go for him. the runD wasnt that bad late in the season, but there are tons of good RBs in the 2-4th round, so somehow this pick is almost too early.
