2013 NFL Mock Draft: The San Diego Chargers Select…

The FanSided crew just did their latest NFL Mock Draft and here is who they have the San Diego Chargers selecting:

10. San Diego Chargers – Barkevious Mingo, DE/LSU

Mingo is a rare breed and he’s what the Chargers may be looking for. He’s quick, has an elite first step and is NFL ready according to experts. While the verdict isn’t in on Melvin Ingram just yet, the feeling isn’t one brimming with faith that he can be elite. It would be odd to see a team go back-to-back years with picking the same position, but we are going be seeing two different regimes pick that position should it pay out that way. Ingram is a piece of work, and Mingo has boom or bust written all over him. Emphasis on the boom.

It is hard to predict who the Chargers will select at this point without knowing who the GM is for the team. Also, we don’t know who we will pick up in free agency. Still, the Chargers biggest need has to be at left tackle. The new GM would have to give Melvin Ingram at least one more season before they move on to someone else.

With our pick in the first round, almost would rather have the team trade out and pick up more picks. Select that tackle and guard in round 2 and then find some weapons for Philip Rivers on offense.

    Honestly Ernie, i’m in agreement, i don’t know what those guys were smokin’ during their mock draft, but defensive help isn’t what the chargers need.
    I expect Jimmy Raye to make room on the roster, by saying good-bye to gaither, clary an dombrowski.
    also, i hope the doctors an trainers are not overlooked in the moving on process.

      and i pray as well the doctors and trainers are not overlooked

      • arnie

        one other thing. you can’t blame the trainers for every thing. remember i stated a while back, “it’s a shared responsibility”. word on the street is, norv’s practices are soft. ask sproles. and soft pratices make soft players. an injuries.
        Marty had injuries but never as many as norv, and he didn’t keep AJ busy in the FA market.

          oh feel what ur saying but we got players having to retire cuz of injuries, that is not the biz who is at fault for Dielman? it sure aint Dielman Also Word on the street is DR Chao has himself into to much trouble to keep his job. but he is still here. forget that. they gots to go and i mean collectively like u said its shared responsibility. there all responsible for the injuries. how does ur 1st round draft pick show up to camp out of shape (Matthews). then break two collar bones cuz someone doesn’t know how to tuck and roll. every time LT got into the playoff s he was hurt. obviously something isnt working . how i see it is make the changes until something does work when it comes to the training staff. they gots to go. thats just me.

          • arnie

            i completely agree. don’t get me wrong, i don’t make excuses for them. so many things were “overlooked” when it came to the doctor, the trainers, the GM, the HC.

    they could always sign Jake Long to a deal and picking a DE/OLB first round then go OL in the second would make perfect sense

    Chance Warmack, Guard, Alabama (unless we somehow trade up to get Joeckel or trade down to get more picks).

  • blu3ny3llow

    I would love if theyd signed jake long n draft a OT(with ability to play both sides) in the first or 2nd round to play right tackle then if the injury bug hits long or eventually, he could slide over to LT assume they have descent OL back up/s to fill in…i think johnnie troutman will be a beast at LG

  • Me

    We have studs in Liuget & Reyes, why on Earth would we waste a 1st round pick on another DE? C’mon, FanSided, think before you post. Offensive line, offensive line, ffensive line.
