Mike Mayock has released his mock draft right before draft day and he has the San Diego Chargers selecting…
Chance Warmack, offensive guard out of Alabama.
If you look at his draft, he has the top 3 tackles all taken by the 4th selection in the draft. When the Chargers select with the 11th pick, Star Lotulelei is still available and we decided to select the guard instead. All 3 tackles and Jonathan Cooper were already off of the board.
Here is the reasoning from Mayock:
I had him rated as highly as anybody in the country this year. There were some concerns medically, and he’s not quite as good in space, but if you’re the Chargers, you plug him in at guard and your offensive line is better.
Of course you put him on the roster and the offensive line is better. You select any offensive linemen in the first round and your line better get better. We can probably add a 4th rounder and our line would get better.
The real question, would our team be better off by selecting Chance Warmack?
