The Chargers are sitting at 11 and have an opportunity to add a Top 11 player in the draft. They have an opportunity to select the left tackle that is near the top of their priority list or select the best player available. There are so many different options with the selection, but the Chargers also have a lot of needs to fill on the roster.
If they stay at 11, they could add a player like Jonathan Cooper, Chance Warmack, Kenny Vacarro or Tavon Austin.
But, IF the Chargers can find a trade partner to drop down a few spots, we would be able to add a couple of players with the similar potential. In this draft, there are no real top talent guys that separate themselves from the rest.
For every Jonathan Cooper and Chance Warmack, a team can take a Larry Warford, Justin Pugh or Kyle Long. For Kenny Vaccaro, a team can take a Matt Elam. For Tavon Austin, a team can select Keenan Allen.
This likely will be a reason why teams don’t want to trade up. The talent is almost even for the first couple of rounds. If we can pull something off though, we could be stockpiling some young talent onto the roster that could contribute immediately.
Now, does anyone want to trade up? Anyone?
