It is lying season in the NFL. All general managers and coaches are keeping their mouths shut and when they speak about players in the draft, you can’t believe a word that they say.
Kevin Acee helped prove that point with his tweet yesterday. Acee shared that AJ Smith was really impressed with Michael Floyd’s performance during his Pro Day. There is no reason that we should be looking at wide receiver that early in this draft. We just brought on Robert Meachem, Eddie Royal, Roscoe Parrish and had other guys on the roster. We all know that he was there taking a peak at Harrison Smith… or was he?!
This is the time in the season when we start over-analyzing everything that the Chargers staff does. AJ Smith was at the Notre Dame Pro Day and we all think that he was there to see Harrison Smith. What if AJ really wants to draft Mark Barron out of Alabama and he was making an appearance out to Notre Dame to throw other teams off? If the Chargers don’t show interest in Barron, it could stop other teams from trying to trade ahead of the Bolts.
Top draft experts don’t know what to expect out of the Chargers. Some have us taking an offensive lineman and others have us taking a pass rusher. AJ loves it.
AJ loves the idea that he is unpredictable! As unpredictable as AJ wants to be, the Bolt faithful know that this draft has to be all about the DEFENSE. If we go any other route, we might line up at Charger Park ready to break the gates down!
Pass rush, safety and depth on the offensive line! If we go in any other direction, then AJ likes the idea that he is unpredictable too much.
