Chargers 2010 Mock Draft 2.0


In our second Chargers mock draft of 2010, BOLTHYPE predicts the Chargers will address the losses of Antonio Cromartie, Ladainian Tomlinson, and Jamal Williams early as they try to replace the three Pro Bowlers.

1st Round: CB Devin McCourty, Rutgers

After an excellent Combine workout where he posted the fastest time among cornerbacks with a 4.34 forty, Devin McCourty opened a lot of eyes around the league. But truth be told, McCourty was a player who's stock has steadily been rising all year long. McCourty is one of the top cornerbacks in this draft class; good size, elite speed, excellent hips and agility, and good ball awareness, McCourty has the ability to play nickel back his rookie year. Additionally, McCourty is a demon of a special teams player. Not shy at all of contact, McCourty was the Scarlet Knights' special teams gunner and also showed the ability to return kicks the distance. A highly productive four-year starter, team captain, and twin brother of a current NFL pro in Jason McCourty, Devin McCourty would be a fantastic value pick at a position of need at the end of the first round. As we've seen, the Chargers have no qualms about drafting defensive backs early so it shouldn't come as a surprise if they do indeed take one in the first two rounds.

2nd Round: DT Cam Thomas, North Carolina

After an impressive Senior Bowl and Combine performance, Cam Thomas' stock is on the rise. Certainly not a guy whose numbers jump off the stat sheet, Thomas projects as a prototype nose guard in the 3-4 defense. He'll be asked to be stout against the run, hold his own against double teams, and generally clog the middle as the linebackers make the plays. He could play in a rotational role in his first year as the Chargers work to find the best group of 'bigs' for each down and distance.

3rd Round: RB Ben Tate, Auburn

In a deep running back draft class, the Chargers should feel comfortable waiting until about the third round before pulling the trigger on a running back. Ben Tate had a productive senior season, running for over 1300 yards and averaging over 5 yards a carry. Tate possess an ideal blend of size, speed, and bulk and really showed off that athleticism in post season workouts such as the Senior Bowl and Combine. Known primarily as a north-south runner, Tate indeed looks to get up the field in a hurry, but also flashes some wiggle and will certainly break tackles. With his low-center of gravity and hard running style, Ben Tate reminds us of a mix between Maurice Jones-Drew, Micheal Turner, and Steven Jackson.

4th Round: LB Micah Johnson, Kentucky

The Chargers have been known to "over draft" a player who they think can be special, and Micah Johnson has the ability to be just that. A former All-SEC tackling machine, Johnson looks like he was designed by a ancient Greek sculptor. Thickly built, rangy, and a 'striking' tackler, Johnson would likely be classified a 'thumper' by Chargers GM AJ Smith. With some durability concerns and timed speed that has concerned some scouts, Johnson's pro outlook looks limited to playing inside in a 3-4 defense, but the Chargers may have need of his services in a year if they allow Tim Dobbins and Kevin Burnett to leave as free agents in 2011.

5th Round: RB Joique Bell, Wayne State

A big fish in a small pound, Bell was dominant at small school Wayne State, twice gaining over two thousand yards in a season. The Division II College Football Player of the Year, Bell has a great blend of size and speed and has also displayed exceptional hands when catching the ball downfield. Bell's numerous student-athlete awards speaks to good intangibles.

7th Round: OT Chris Marinelli, Stanford

Chris Marinelli is a big, physical right tackle that comes from program coached by Jim Harbaugh, one of college football's brightest young coaches. Marinelli was the leader of Stanford's offensive line as their most experienced starter and most versatile, showing the ability to play guard and tackle. Big part of Toby Gerhart's success and his size and versatility will be attractive to pro personnel people.

Great draft on paper.. But I see them taking a QB sometime.

I just cant see the Chargers taking another CB in the 1st round. We just signed Strickland to be the nickel back. Cason and Jammer are both 1st rounders and we need to maximize their value. There's not need at the CB position like there is at NT and RB. At CB the Chargers have depth, at NT and RB there is absolutely none.

If Cason doesn't pan out, then we go with a CB in next years draft.

Love it! Besides Bell this is the best mock I have seen this year!!!

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 12:22:00 AM

I actually like this mock. McCourty fills a number of roles, namely the gunner left open by Osgood, the nickel position that opened up when Cromartie left and he seems to have good return abilities so he could fill in if Sproles leaves: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofunm6rbYBE

Good mock Rob, thank you for not taking the easy way out and picking Ryan Matthews!

isaac said... Mar 16, 2010, 12:37:00 AM

Actually the mock is not that bad. Love that you have the bolts drafting two RB's which I think will happen. Tate is a beast but I doubt we take a DB in the 1st rd and we will never get Cam Thomas at #61.
would rather have Best/Cody with the 1st pk.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 1:00:00 AM

i'm Frank and
i really like this mock........ but i don't think Cam Thomas will fall to the 60th pick. but if not Cam Thomas, i think Tyson Alualu would be a nice pick. and maybe a DT in the other 3rd pick from C.Whitehurst if he goes to the cards.
i like Ben Tate and if Anthony Dixon is there hes good too.
and if Whitehurst goes to the hawks who don't have a 3rd pick, i think we might swap 1st picks with the hawks and probably draft Dan Williams to be the next J-wall williams!!1
and in that case i think are mock could go like this:
pick from seattle
1.Dan Williams-DT
2.Tyson Alualu-DE
3.Ben Tate/Anthony Dixon-HB
4.AJ Jefferson/Akwasi Owusugetthepoint-CB best available
5.TightEnd best available, maybe blocking TE
7.Chris Marinelli-OT
i don't no if were going to get a comp pick for igor maybe 6th?

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 1:26:00 AM

Frank again,
i can't forget about HBack Montario Hardesty for possibly 3rd round also.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 3:25:00 AM

This is what I predict will happen: Sproles will be traded for a second round pick. Whitehurst will go to either AZ for a 3rd round pick OR go to SEA and we swap first round picks, moving us up to #14 overall. Either scenario will allow us to pick up a NT and a RB with our first two picks in the draft. NT could be Dan Williams, T. Cody, Cam Thomas. RBs could be Spiller, Best, Mathews. After locking up a player at each of these two positions AJ is going to grab another RB-preferably Blount from Oregon-and we'll have two sets of fresh young legs in the backfield and a top tier NT to fill that void on the Dline. Then we can use the rest of our picks to battle for spots at CB, DE, T, and possibly ILB. In terms of ILB, I hate our corps. Why? A disgusting amount of missed tackles. We need a thumper like Rolando McClain but too bad we have too many other pressing needs.

Fans of SD, remember that game where we lost at home to a team that could only play defense, we need a SS or even a FS. I would agree with a DT or CB and we do need depth at CB. AJ smith you should have went with a veteran DT like V. Wilfork of the pats, at least throw him an offer. Im said to say i will be goin to chargers games later this year but expect us to lose alot because of our tough schedule

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 9:00:00 AM

I'd be surprised to see a DB in the first round. Cason is moving up. Strickland takes the hole left by Cro, and everybody else is back. What's the great need there when you have a huge hole at RB and def line?
And I'd hold off on comments regarding how great someone's combine numbers were. I think it's clear AJ couldn't care less about that. He looks at how the draftees played in games, not how they performed at a glorified track meet.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 9:37:00 AM

Bell and Tate? I dunno. I don't really see it.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 9:57:00 AM

This is a good mock. I think we've learned that the Bolts are always considering CB in the first round. Tate in round 3 would be a great pick. Other d-line picks we might see: Odrick, Price, or Alualu. Alualu reminds me of Castillo in playing style. Let's hope the Bolts pick up a few more draft picks so they can target all of these positions, as well as RT. Any word on the likelihood of letting Vincent Jackson go?

Rob Zepeda said... Mar 16, 2010, 10:05:00 AM

As you guys know, the Chargers drafted Cromartie (1st round pick) at a time when they already had Jammer (former 1st round pick)and Florence (former 1st round pick).

A couple years later, they drafted Cason (1st round pick) with Cromartie and Jammer still on the roster.

There's a track record here of the AJ Smith and the Chargers placing a high value on defensive backs.

Donald Strickland is not the long-term solution here and is nothing more than a stop-gap at this point (unless he plays out of his mind)

P-Los said... Mar 16, 2010, 10:19:00 AM

I like it, nice job. I don't think we'll draft 2 RBs though. And i don't think we'll draft a NT (atleast not that early) i know people are talking about filling Jamal's spot but I think the reason we didn't bring him back has alot to do with us trusting in Vaughn Martin, Nwagbuo and Johnson to compete for a starting spot and rotate in. I think you should replace Cam Thomas with Tyson Alualu, Koa Misi or Alex Carrington, we need a 5 technique DE more so than a NT right now and Shawne Phillips will also need to be replaced soon and this draft is top heavy with DE's and OLBs, it starts to thin out after the 2nd, if we're about picking for value, i think we'll grab a CB, OLB or DE in the 1st two rounds.

Chris said... Mar 16, 2010, 10:24:00 AM

Rob, great mock draft.

I don't see the chargers drafting a CB in the first round again. it is possible but it is a waste with the talent there is at RB and DT/DE/NT in this draft. I really like that Cam Thomas is finally getting some attention, but here is a name to look out for: Linval Joseph NT from ECU. He is a HUGE run stuffer and an excellent pash rusher at the position. He had 17 TFL in his senior year. thats more than any player at the position.

other than that i enjoyed the mock keep up the good work.

Jay said... Mar 16, 2010, 10:42:00 AM

I just watched a youtube video on this devin kid. Super fast! It would be a good pick, only if we were able to do something with strickland, cason and jammer already in that position. I think maybe do something to help out Weddle in the saftey position would be nice. But we need to focus more so on the running backs and DT positions more.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 12:59:00 PM

Florence was a second round pick, though the point is valid. I just have a hard time seeing a pick for that position considering the gaping holes elsewhere.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 1:53:00 PM

Gotta agree with a few of the others, I don't see us taking another CB in the first round. NT would likely be the priority here, unless they are supremely confident that Martin is the future at that spot. Another spot would be RT...a sore spot the last few years. Overall our o-line needs work, it isn't all LT and the Sprocket Rocket that we only had 3.2 and 3.3 yards per carry.

Steve said... Mar 16, 2010, 5:37:00 PM

If we do the charlie + 28 for 14 then we have to go for D-Wall, though the decision is up to jesus whitehurst wether he goes cards or hawks.

With Rivers locked up for the next 6 or 7 (i think) years on contract we don't have to find the long term solution in running back, but we lost to the jets because they could pound the rock.

We need a run stuffing beast and we can't let Dan Williams slip past (if we get the 14 pick and the dolphins don't take him at 12 - maybe trade up to get him at 12?).

You talk about wanting a thumper, its hard to focus on smashing the ball carrier if you have a guard on you because only the nose tackle is only drawing the centre rather than 2 OL men.

Drafting a corner would only be an upgrade, while drafting a NT would be a long term solution.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 8:23:00 PM

Anyone who thinks....

A) That we'll go CB in the 1st.....is a fool, because we have bigger needs than A NICKLE CORNER!
B) That we'll go 3-4 DE in the 1st.....is not paying attention, because we have WAAAY to man DE's already with Castillo, Martin, Cesaire, Bingham, Scott, Johnson, and Ngwuabuo.
C) That Ben Tate is a good player.....is a combine swayed retard who knows nothing about football. 1 Month ago this guy was on NOBODY's radar, after a fast comine time he's the "flavor of the day"
D) That Joique Bell will make a good pro......is drinking the koolaide on a D-II guy that was just a D-I guy playing weak compeition.


This is a retarded draft, it is shamefull how little you people know about the Chargers in general. And it is pitifull how your swayed by the combine.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 8:26:00 PM

Remove head from asses people! We are not drafting a single 3-4 DE in this draft!

Castillo, Ngwabuo, Martin, Bingham, Scott, and Johnson MORE THAN HAVE THE POSITION LOCKED UP! So stop putting Alualu, Odrick, and Price in your damn mocks, its a waste of time, learn something about the Chargers before you make retarded mocks like this.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 8:57:00 PM

Those last two posts are almost as ignorant as they are offensive. Ngwabuo, Scott and Johnson were picked up off the scrap heap. Martin is a total project who's only played American football for one year, and Castillo is always an injury risk. Having lots of lousy players on the roster is not the same thing as actually having quality at the position. I'm putting my money on a DE in the 1st or 2nd.

Anonymous said... Mar 16, 2010, 10:55:00 PM

I would trade down get Jahvid best in rd 2. Alualu 2. gerhart 3. and the rest is wide open. with those three picks we go deep into playoffs. and SB bound. We need explosive players. not wishful thinkers...

Michael Craft said... Mar 16, 2010, 11:30:00 PM

I LOVE the Cam Thomas pick and the Joique Bell pick as well. But I don't see a 1st RD DB pick again. As it stands with the 28th pick, I see RB all the way, MAYBE a DT 1st and RB 2nd. But for RB's, not Ben Tate, and not until late in the 3rd. It's just too much of a gamble to wait that long for what amounts to our Number 1 Running Back. IMHO

Anonymous said... Mar 17, 2010, 12:54:00 AM

What would get our team in the right direction.

1. Javid Best or Ryan Matthews
2. Tyson Alualau (this kid is going to be great in the NFL Period!!)
3. Lagarrett Blout ( The power back we need!!!)
3. The rest of the picks on DL and OL. The team would be back in business!!!! If we have a OK defense we will have a great Offense that can put up the numbers to win ball games. We still have the rotation at nose so we will have a better defense this year!!!!

Anonymous said... Mar 17, 2010, 4:32:00 AM

First of all I would try to traded sproles for a high second pick. We are all hoping to get the 3rd pick from AZ. With a great running game teams would not know how to stop us way too many weapons. There would be no way to stop this offense period!!!!!!!!!

1. Javid Best or Ryan Matthews (most important need establish run game)
2. Tyson Alualu (this guy fits perfect in our defense of scheme stop the run and let the linebacker get the sack)
2. Cam Thomas (sproles trade)
3. Lamarr Houston (We need a DL to make this defense successful so let make it happen)
3. Lagerrett Blout (A beast power back we need to make we have successful running games)
4. Myron Rolle (SS or nickel back has a nose for the ball very smart kid)
5.6.7. address OL

I've been harping 2trade Sproles for weeks.
Sproles+3rd pk 2010+ 3rd pk (2011)= 49ers #17 pk( they have 2 first rounders and are rumored to want a compliment to Gore) and I hope Whitehurst goes to Seattle. Than!!!

#14- NT DanWilliams
#17- FS Taylor Mays
#61- RB Ben Tate/Joe Mcknight
3rd. CB Parrish Cox
4th. RB Charles Scott
5th OT/WR
7th LB( has been a productive position 4 the bolts late in the draft)

Anonymous said... Mar 17, 2010, 9:06:00 AM

We can immediately improve running game if we go out and get Pierre Thomas or Oakland's Fargas. What wrong with a little free agent action. When I go out at night I want to know I getting laid for sure just not maybe.

Lighting 72.

Eddie said... Mar 17, 2010, 10:41:00 AM

Whitehurst decided to take Seattle's offer. Now the Chargers & Seahawks have to work something out. Hopefully the Chargers find a way to get the Seahawks to interchange one of their two picks in the 1st round. Now if the Chargers move up the board. How can you say no to C.J.Spiller? Or saying no to Dan Williams. CB is out of the picture in this case.

Anonymous said... Mar 17, 2010, 12:12:00 PM

We can not get Thomas Pierre because we would have to give up a pick and I am not willing to do that. Justin Fargas has a lot of health problems every year. We need youth at the running back position. If Javid best did not get hurt his senior year he would be a top 10 pick. He is going to be the real deal in the NFL speed, vision and power for his size. He is about the same size as LT was when we draft him as a rockie. Javid Best is a lot faster and his moves are something else. Just watch the kid on youtube. I watch college football and he was a beast. If Lagarrett Blout did not punch that football player from boise state he would be in the first round. That would be a great pick in the 3rd round. We need a running game in order to take it to the next level.

#1 Nose tackle - cody / price /

#2 RB -Best / Mathews/ Gerhardt (the highest rated RB on their draft board, with the 40th pick now should be end of the 1st round value )

#3 - LB / DE again best available and could be a DB

#4 - TE - Rob Gronkowski (was hurt all year and would be 1st ore 2nd round if healthy)

#5 RB - Stafon Johnson - another player who if not for injury would've been 2nd or 3rd pick

#6 - CB/S Josh Pinkard USC -- 5th year senior, really solid player...

#7 QB - Sean Canfield - local kid, developmental project but can make all the throws and super smart...

Anyone who believes our current d-line is ok apparently didn't watch the playoff game -- remember we barely had the ball? do you know why? BECAUSE WE COULDN'T STOP THE RUN...we couldn't stop it all year -- despite Riveria's great coaching and shuffling in fresh bodies etc...losing Jamal Williams ended our season last year -- as far as advancing to the Super Bowl...RB's are plentiful -- good ones and even great ones (terrel davis 6th round pick) in later rounds...but great D-linemen ? Very rare...and many 1st round D-linemen are busts -- but teams are so desperate for quality play there that they often gamble on "potential" etc...I'm pretty sure we'll address the d-line in the first round -- with cody or price or someone AJ really covets...Martin was inactive for most of the year -- a year where we needed big bodies and athleticism desperately...and he barely got on the field...he didn't have more than a few tackles all year, right? I like him -- I just don't think any of those guys are championship caliber players now...this post is for that arrogant annom. poster who chided anyone for even suggesting the chargers might address the DE/NT position.....and remember the NFL draft is fluid and crazy stuff happens all the time -- people drop and at 28 and 40 now we can take advantage of that in a big way -- I think that will ultimately determine who is taken and where...but I'm sure AJ is targeting some key people...anyway just wanted to try and rationally explain why people are putting DE/NT's at the top of their mocks...I agree we need RB's -- but I think there's more value (and fewer) quality d-linemen than RB's in the early rounds...

Anonymous said... Mar 18, 2010, 11:47:00 AM

AJ is rebuilding on the run while trying to stay on top....that's why he jettisoned LT & Jamal, Cromartie was trouble, and Osgood waned to go and could get cancerous.....This draft and next year's will re-tool team considerably....NFL requires constant retooling and rejuveniating with youth....standing pat with aging stars is road to ruin

Eddie said... Mar 18, 2010, 11:52:00 AM

Rob, Do you think the Chargers will past on Ryan Mathews if he drops down to #28? Our defense held up allright to get us to the playoffs with the players we have. Plus that was without J.Williams. Cromartie didn't play to his best ability also. Sure we need a CB, but we don't have a playmaker in the offensive backfield. We been having one, now none.

Anonymous said... Mar 18, 2010, 2:56:00 PM

ryan matthews is a great runningback yes but so is jahvid best. He would be a definite 1st round pick if he did not get hurt and many people believe that he was not even that hurt it was just Cal being careful with him. Not to mention with the chargers moving up in the second round both of these guys have a great chance of still beign available. While Darren sproles will probably come back due to such a high tender jamal Williams is gone for good and the chargers need a nose tackle. Every successful 3-4 defense has a good nose tackle. The patriots vince wilfork and steelers casey hampton. there are not many good defensive tackles available. WIth teh first round pick the chargers MUST take a defensive tackle such as someone like Brian Price jared Odrick Terrence Cody or Dan Williams. Williams might be gone by then but there is a good chance the others will be available. Get a defensive tackle then you can get a very good runnningback in teh 2nd round still to team up with sproles. 3rd and 4th round there will still be many cornerbacks or safeties available to mix in the secondary. But if anyone thinks that the chargers should not get a nose tackle first is stupid.

Daniel said... Mar 18, 2010, 6:09:00 PM

I feel strongly that Ryan Mathews should be the guy we should go for... The dude is a complete monster watch his highlight vids... Although i do feel we should go NT in first round and RB in second (40th overall pick now!)

Mark said... Mar 19, 2010, 11:17:00 AM

In regards to the CB prospect, Devin McCourty, I guess "good hips" isn't just an attribute for a hot woman! (LOL)

Anonymous said... Mar 19, 2010, 10:58:00 PM

I like the idea of Rb's later in the draft, this is a deep class of at least 10 backs who will contribute at the NFL level. I also like the idea of a corner early, this has been AJ's track record. There are several CB's who could help us in the return game (Wilson, McCourty, Ansah) I like.

My hopes are AJ addresses safety and RT, which are two needs rarely taken seriously in Mocks...but if we intend to hoist the Lombardi we will needd upgrades there.

Anonymous said... Mar 20, 2010, 6:01:00 AM

SLEEPER late round picks --remember AJ likes to pick up guys who missed most of their last college season in the last few rounds (from brandon siler, to lsu wr demetrius byrd and even though he didn't work out -- anthony waters...) just to name a few....

the guy I hope he steals this year anytime after the 4th round is WALTER THURMOND from Oregon, a dominating DB who can hit, lock up his man and is a total ballhawk...a four year starter at oregon, he was hurt toward the end of the season and hasn't been able to work out for any teams...but if he hadn't been hurt he'd be 2nd or 3rd pick - maybe even a first.

I also think AJ could take STAFON JOHNSON in the 7th round (or the 6th if we get a compensatory pick back for the trade with the Texans for the NT..)

Another former 1st round prospect who missed his entire junior year and decalred for the draft is Rob Gronkowski, a TE from Arizona...he can block, catches everything and even has a little speed.....

AJ Smith built this Chargers team -- which is widely considered to be the most talented team in the league from top to bottom...I remember when he took Whitehurst and made no apologies -- saying Whitehurst was a :"steal" and now we're basically moving so far up in the second round it's like a second first round pick...

But AJ makes mistakes too -- see Hester and the incredible price we paid to move up and take Weddle-- but those are the kinds of players he covets...hard nosed tough old school football players...that's why I think Gerhardt will be our guy in the 2nd round...I'd prefer he take Best with the 40th pick -- but who knows if he'll be available?


All I know is the Chargers have won the division for like four or five years in a row...AJ might make me scream and shout a few times over draft weekend (like LARRY ENGLISH OVER REY M.?!! WTF?!!) but when all the rounds are over I always like most of the picks...

Look for Cody or Price or any mammoth DL/NT that slips on draft day to be AJ's first pick....

kelcherfan said... Mar 20, 2010, 7:41:00 PM

I like your thinking. My thoughts
1. McCourty - in a pass happy league you never have too many top cbs
2. Best with pick 40 - lightning
3. Dixon - rb - thunder
4. Troup - ng - put in rotation
5. Canfield qb - clipboard duty
6. Schofield olb - spends a year on practice squad
7. Moats olb - special teams demon

Boltfn909 said... Mar 20, 2010, 8:36:00 PM

I'd take Kyle Wilson over McCourty @ 28 IF the Bolts do not sign Vasher or another vet CB. Doubtful Tate is there for our 3rd pick. Micah Johnson is overrated, I'd take Pat Angerer or even Brandon Spikes considering he will drop to the 4th. I like the Bell pick in the 5th. I'd take John Estes in the 7th if there, we need depth @ C badly. Norman is gone and Mooch is a true guard. My mock (based on what AJ will do, not me)
Based on Sproles staying and no CB picked up prior to draft:

1)Kyle Wilson
2)Ben Tate
3)Torell Troup
4)Pat Angerer
5)Kam Chancellor
7)John Estes

This..., Just..., In..., (on somebody's High-Speed Sports Wire): Clemson running back C.J. SPILLER reportedly scored a god-forsaken *10* on his Wonderlic test. Uh-oh... That means he scored one click higher than former SD fan-favorite Antonio "latex intolerant" Cromartie, which means he's dumber than water wings on a fish and definitely NOT Charger draft material.
Sorry to bust any bubbles, but it's better to know now.

Jay said... Mar 21, 2010, 9:18:00 AM

if the rumor about cj spiller is true then yikes! hopefully the bolts go after vasher. that leaves out options way more open then to draft a cb in the first round.

Chargers should take a look at Trindon Holliday from LSU. He ran a 4.34. he was the second fastest runner in college last year. here is a video link if anyone wants to see what I am talking about.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1Q0vlN6Pe8
