Time for another mock draft for the San Diego Chargers. With the Titans winning, we moved up higher in the draft and if we continue our slide, we could find ourselves in the top 5 this year. With us already in the top 10 in the draft, we must figure out if we draft the best player on the board or if we draft for our biggest need.
The latest 2013 Fansided NFL Mock Draft has been released and here is who they have the Chargers selecting:
8. San Diego Chargers – Dee Milliner, Cornerback, Alabama
Milliner is the clear number one cornerback prospect in this draft. Milliner could have gone to Detroit just a pick earlier, so if he remains on the board it would be the pick San Diego needs to make. Two of the Chargers top defensive backs will become free agents after the season and they can ill afford to allow a top talent like Milliner slip through their fingers.
Milliner may be the top corner in the draft, but is he the biggest need at this point on the roster? In years past, the cornerback position was a big big need for the team, but their are bigger areas that the Chargers will need to focus on.
Both starting corners are free agents, but I see the Bolts bringing back at least one of them. Quentin Jammer is someone I can see the Bolts riding out till the end of his career. Antoine Cason has played much better than last season and should be brought back. Shareece Wright would be next man up and we can take a chance on him as a starter. He will make his share of mistakes, but again there are other areas of need.
