Better for Chargers: Jonathan Cooper or Chance Warmack?

If none of the left tackles are available with the 11th pick in the draft, which guard would you want the Chargers to target? Let’s assume they stick with selecting an offensive linemen and pass on any defensive players. I know some of you would rather go defense if this scenario comes up, but there is definitely a chance that we select the best guard on the board.

But who is the best guard for the Chargers?

On one corner, we have the athletic offensive lineman from North Carolina, Jonathan Cooper. He seems a perfect fit for a zone blocking scheme that we assume the Chargers will be employing.

On the other corner, we have the rugged offensive lineman from Alabama, Chance Warmack. Warmack looks to destroy players on every play and has a bit of a chip on his shoulder. He may not fit the zone blocking scheme as well as Cooper though.

The Chargers will make a solid choice selecting either Chance Warmack or Jonathan Cooper. Either of them would be able to start on the left side of the line and would be an instant upgrade for the passing and running game. Philip Rivers could have a little more comfort standing back there chucking the football around and that means a world of difference for the offensive side of the football.

Make Philip Rivers comfortable again and we could see that Pro Bowl quarterback make a return. Then we can start to compete for a playoff spot again.
