Should the Chargers Trade Up In Draft For Lane Johnson?


The Cleveland Browns might be looking to trade out of the 6th spot in the NFL Draft. Should the San Diego Chargers look to move up into that spot or move up somewhere in the draft to select Oklahoma LT Lane Johnson?

What would it take to move up to the 6th spot from pick 11? Our 1st rounder and our 3rd? That seems pretty heavy. That should be two starters for the team right there. Is Lane Johnson going to be the difference maker that we need?

If you think that Lane Johnson is going to be an absolute stud, then we do whatever it takes to move up and select him. I would rather have Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher, but Johnson seems to be the easiest target to acquire.

Lane Johnson… Considering I didn’t even want to draft the guy a few months ago, I don’t think I would trade up in the draft to select him. I would be alright selecting him with pick 11, but losing draft picks suck.

With the 11th pick, we could have Chance Warmack or Jonathan Cooper or TAVON AUSTIN or whoever the heck else you want and with the 3rd round pick we could have Leon McFadden or Montee Ball or whoever. Those are two quality players. Trading up doesn’t sound too awesome to me. Would you make move up in the draft?
