San Diego Chargers general manager was in attendance for the Wisconsin Badgers Pro Day to take another look at defensive end JJ Watt. Watt is one of the top prospects that MAY be available when the Bolts pick with the 18th pick. He stands at 6’5″ and 290 pounds and would be a perfect fit in the Chargers 3-4 defensive scheme. He is a tenacious defender and just kills it against the run and would provide a lot of energy to the defense.
If this is AJ’s guy, which it seems like it is, I would expect us to make a trade up in the draft to select him. Our Chargers have shown that they are not afraid of making a move up in the order to get our guy. We moved up in the draft last year chasing after running back Ryan Mathews.
A defensive front of JJ Watt, Antonio Garay, and Luis Castillo would be awesome and each guy could take up multiple blockers which would allow our linebackers Shaun Phillips and Larry English (hopefully) to make plays in the backfield.
