Lets play GM, part 2 - 7 Round mock for the chargers

I split this article into 2 parts, since it got a little long, so here goes part 2:

I put together a 7 rounds mock for the chargers, it will include the actual pick, 4 other players that make sense. Well lets get going then:

Pick 11 Chance Warmack OG Alabama: Considered probably the safest player in the draft a true beast run blocker and almost as good as a pass blocker, and is athletic enough to play a zone scheme the chargers seem to be heading to.

Other players that will be considered:
Xavier Rhodes CB Florida St
Star Lotuleilei NT Utah
Tavon Austin WR West Virginia
Jarvis Jones OLB Georgia
Barkevious Mingo OLB LSU

Players the chargers hope drop to them:
Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma
Jonathan Cooper OG North Carolina
Dion Jordan OLB Oregon

Pick 45 Terron Armstead OT UAPB: A great athlete at the OT position, who still is learning, but still played at a solid level in the postseason all star games, might have to play RT his rookie season to get acclimated to the pro game. The full investment in the offensive line continues, I expect Armstead to replace Clary his rookie season, and then to be transferred to LT his second season.

Other players that will be considered:
Justin Pugh OT Syracuse
Jamie Collins OLB Souther Miss
Keenan Allen WR California
Robert Woods WR USC

Pick 76 Sio Moore OLB Connecticut: His measurables put him at a little small (6’1 245 lbs), but the production is more than solid with 15.5 tackles for loss and 8 sacks, to go with 4.6 speed. He played extremely well in postseason all star games, plus the chargers already have had success in the same program with Kendall Reyes.

Other players that will be considered:
Philip Thomas S Fresno State
Jonathan Franklin RB UCLA
Jonathan Bostic ILB Florida
Robert Alford CB Southern Louisiana

Pick 110 Brandon Williams Missouri Southern: A mountain of a man at 6’1 340 lbs, who was dominant against inferior competition, has the talent level is that of 2nd round draft pick, and will be asked to backup Cam Thomas while he learns the ropes.

Other players that will be considered:
Leon McFadden CB SDSU
Kenny Stills WR Oklahoma
Nico Johnson ILB Alabama
Montari Hughes Tennessee-Martin

Pick 145 Tharold Simon CB LSU: Only a one year starter in a program known for producing excellent defensive players, skill set is more than intriguing 6’2 205 lbs 4.5 speed. Known as CB who still is a little raw and best suited to play zone coverage. The chargers can hide him as their 4-5 corner and get a real value by his 2-3 year in the NFL.

Other players that will be considered:
Will Davis CB Utah State
Nico Johnson ILB Alabama
Stepfan Taylor RB Stanford
Tony Jefferson S Oklahoma

Pick 179 Josh Boyce WR TCU: As we have learned through the years Mountain West players get lost in the shuffle, and Boyce is a bargain at this point, he was productive at TCU going over 800 yards the last 2 seasons, and his sub 4.4 speed doesn’t hurt, he’s not as physical as he needs to be at this point, but would be a great value.

Other players that will be considered:
Spencer Ware RB LSU
Cory Grissom DE Southern Florida
Onterrio McCalleb RB Auburn
Damion Square DE Alabama

Pick 222 Miguel Maysonnet RB Stoney Brook: A favorite of Daniel Jeremiah, at 5’9 210 lbs, 4.65 speed, really productive and tough RB. At this point in the draft I will trust a guy like Jeremiah to be smarter than me.

At the end of draft I gave a vote of confidence to Brandon Taylor & Jonas Mouton time to put up of shut up guys.
