Morning Dump: San Diego Chargers News Around the Web


Slow day in sports yesterday. Hope everyone enjoyed their President’s Day weekend, but it is time to get back on the grind.

Mayock believes the Chargers are in a good position with several options at their disposal. He thinks the Chargers could go with an offensive lineman, either a guard or tackle, in which case the most likely selections in his mind would be Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack, North Carolina offensive guard Jonathan Cooper, Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher or Oklahoma’s offensive tackle Lane Johnson, whose draft stock rose during the Senior Bowl. Mayock also believes the Chargers wouldn’t go wrong with a 3-4 linebacker/defensive end hybrid like Oregon’s Dion Jordan.

From there, it’s time for the next two offseason to-do lists. The Chargers have a new look with coach Mike McCoy and General Manager Tom Telesco taking over for Norv Turner and A.J.
