Chargers 3 Round Mock Draft from NFL Mocks


20111204-115636.jpg

Here is another mock draft provided from NFL Mocks and this time they rolled out with a 3 round mock. In this draft we are sitting at pick 14 and we filled in a lot of our gaps with the picks that were chosen. In the mock, we went with a pass rushing linebacker, a safety and an offensive tackle in the first 3 rounds. Those should be our highest priorities coming into this draft and we have to make some good decisions with those picks. Here is who NFL Mocks selected in those 3 rounds:

14. (Round 1) San Diego Chargers Brandon Jenkins DE/OLB FSU
Jenkins is a maddening talent. He has great size and athleticism but has not produced a ton this year. He has had moments but this pick is about upside. He gets a ton of attention and that frees up everyone else. I think he is a better 3-4 OLB than a 4-3 DE. Chargers need pass rushers.

14. (Round 2) San Diego Chargers Mark Barron SS Alabama
Chargers defense has not been what it was in years past. Talent is getting older and it is time the Chargers replenished its losses. Jenkins will finally replace Merriman in Round 1 and Barron will fill the SS hole the Chargers currently have. Smart, strong, Crimson Tide players are the cure for a weak defense.

14. (Round 3) San Diego Chargers Levy Adcock OT Oklahoma State
Chargers OL is in bad shape. RT and RG are inconsistent and injuries to the rest leave them short handed. Adcock can play OG and RT in the NFL…in a pinch he can play LT as well. Chargers would love this kind of versatility.

I wouldn’t mind seeing the draft play out like this. Jenkins can chase after the quarterbacks and line up on the opposite side of Shaun Phillips. Barron can fill that black hole that we have had at safety.

Here is the tape on these kids:

    I hope this happens. The last 4 years when they announced the bolts 1st pick, I always went “who?”

      @JonVivian i have done the same thing… this last year, i could have sworn that we were going to pick Cameron Jordan… and then I went… WHAT!?!?!?

        Epandaon, these drafts that AJ Smith has done lately have really doomed our team with no dept or anything. In the last few years we have let more playmakers go to other teams and let them help win. I am a diehart from the 1964 era. It can leave you shaking your head and wondering when the next win is goiing to come or not.. How do you feel about tonite’s game? Go Chargerssssssssssssss

          @RobertDouglasCruit i THINK that this team comes out with a WIN.. BUT i would not be surprised seeing it go either way… we dont seem to like performing in front of the national audience

          Even with the picks we have gotten lately we don’t play them but stick them on the Rookie list and there thay sit. The one thing that i have noticed is that the Chargers Management hasn’t been lilstening to us when it comes to drafting or using a player. In freeagents we pick up aging players that should be thinking of Retirement (like LaBoy he hasn’t done a thing to help us win a game. We got him so he would be our Passrusher but he has only one sack and he was lucky to get that one. Epandaon, i agree with you on the outcome of this game. I want a win but if we lose we will be closer to the top of the draft and just might get ourselves a impack player, maybe??

    I hope the in coming GM and Coach draft per need and not best available. That has proven alot of busts where you can get great atheles as freeagents unsigned. We need O-line and a tackling safety. Notice I said tackling, that means large bodyed, quick, smart, and in tune to the new pop-warner rules of football. But Rivers and our key ( wr, rb ) offensive players need a great line to be great. And the make shift line Sunday pulled through, that’s because we started the season with poor line play because they didn’t read their team last year and respond in the 2010 Draft. They had a chance to beef it up but didn’t, that’s a F for AJ and Turner.

    I totally agree with you mike but i have been wondering if the Chargers make a run for the rest of the games left on our schedule will that keep Norv and AJ on the hot seat instead of being led out the door? I have watched a 14-2 team go down to a 5-7 team in 4 yrs. Not good at all and someone has to be held responsible.Norv or AJ i don’t care.
