  1. They needed play makers on the defensive line, offensive line, and at outside linebacker.

    So what do they do? They move up in the first round, giving up two picks in the process in order to draft a running back (Gordon). I have nothing against, him but the Chargers had bigger areas of need.

    No wonder they signed 21 undrafted free agents. They have to try and make up for the horrible draft they did have by throwing as much stuff against the wall as they can to see if any of it sticks.

  2. Great source of talent going into camp and preseason from which to find depth and pratice squad players. If some of these guys are only “camp bodies” they will still have a leg up for finding regular teams as they will gain invaluable experience playing with veterans in the big leagues and getting top notch coaching for developing their skilllsets. GREAT JOB, Chargers for coming home with a major haul from the draft!

  3. It’s amazing how many Charger “fans” holler from the mountain tops about the ignorance of the management for trading up to get Gordon. You don’t think that they know an inkling about what they are doing? There’s no way that they would make that trade if they did not have insight that either Houston was going to take him or a darkhorse team was going to trade with Houston to get him. Then the same “fans” would holler from the mountain tops that the management took the safe route for an overhyped player that would not pan out (i.e. Larry English). Go be Bronco “fans”.
