San Diego Chargers NFL Draft 2013 Day 2: Open Thread


Great job everyone at keeping the conversation rolling for the first round in the draft in our open thread. I was chilling at a friend’s pad during the day and was unable to jump on. You would have probably seen me lose my mind during the selection though.

Roger Goodell walked up to the podium and I just kept saying “Star or Vaccaro. Star or Vaccaro… Don’t say DJ Fluker. Don’t say DJ!”

I covered my eyes like it would make things better if I didn’t see Roger Goodell speak and I was so dang nervous about the selection. If I were on the keyboards, I may have lost my mind.

Today should be a much better day for me to jump on here, even though I haven’t even been on here all morning.

Jump onto the thread, there are all kinds of things that can happen in round 2 and 3 for us. There are so many things that we can do to make this draft work really well.

I have settled down since yesterday. Let’s see if Tommy T can get the blood rising one more time though. Sound off… the thread is OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

    not gonna name names but were not switchin to 4-3 now.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      James is wrong, no way?

      • Sergio Quintero

        way

      • Sergio Quintero

        The guy has conviction and he doesn’t back down, I’ll give him credit

    • Sergio Quintero

      hahahaha

    • nativesandiegan

      We’ll probably be more of hybrid now

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Someone fire Mike Mayock he is opposed to having fun….he looks so mad always

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    I am still at work… jerks.. hahahaha! Still happy that we got an ILB..

    For some reason, I didn’t realize that Manti was a Mormon. The whole catfish thing made a little more sense to me after hearing that. Mormons are some of the most trusting & helping people in the world, and don’t believe in pre-marital sex. My main concern was how can a football player who probably gets all the chicks, fall in love with a girl on the internet? He couldn’t be that much of an idiot!

    Then I watched his Dad talking about how tough it is for kids on the island, because they don’t have the opportunity to face adversity like mainland kids do, and they are somewhat sheltered. That combination of circumstances made me feel like he probably was just a bit gullable, and probably wasn’t lying. It doesn’t seem as far fetched now, as it originally did to me.

      He admitted that he lied when he told the media he had met this girl. That was a lie. He said he was embarrassed to admit he had a girlfriend that was only online. His father went on tv and also said they had met.

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Oh… so he admitted he made the whole thing up? I must have missed that.

  • nativesandiegan

    Probably was at top of Chargers board. They had him in for a visit and I guess he allayed any concerns. We needed ILB if staying with 3-4, so now need NT. Think we can get real good NT in 5th or even later.

  • 619chargers4life

    am i missing something. still no OL drafted this round

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Armstead is in the 3rd of alot of Mocks, keep on falling big fella!

  • Sergio Quintero

    Day is looking on the uptick, hoping for a pass rusher or a miracle drop from Armstead to the 3rd round. Going to see Iron Man 3 in the evening

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    trade 5th 6th and 7th pick for a additional 3rd? would anyone do that

    • Sergio Quintero

      would be exciting, good idea probably not

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      I would be down with that

  • 619chargers4life

    there goes one Tackle

    • DougM

      Raiders took who we should have taken.

      • boltingindiego

        if we would have taken a lt it would be armstead not watson.

        • Sergio Quintero

          Agree

        • DougM

          Think so? Well if that’s the case, it would have been too early for Armstead.

          • boltingindiego

            we need a lt and armstead played their. watson has only played 2 years of football both at rt that would be a huge risk to see if he can developed to a lt. armstead was rated to go mid 2nd to the 3rd round.

          • DougM

            That’s my mistake then. I thought Watson was being talked about as an athletic possible LT.

          • boltingindiego

            he is really athletic but it would be a risk if he didn’t work out as a lt since we just selected a rt yesterday. we could have picked him but i think it went away when we picked fluker.

          • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

            I don’t know what happened to Armstead, but all these draft boards had him gone by the 5th pick (Detroit) in the second round. Something happened.. that his draft standing is plummeting.

  • RussinSactown

    Geno Smith to the Jets. Mr. Sanchez is likely on his way out the door. Watson is off the board

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      Crap, where do we go round 3? Best NT and get a LT in 5th like Mills?

      • DougM

        Need to luck out on Armstead.

      • DougM

        I like McDonald as a SS too.

        • DougM

          …for later rounds I mean.

      • RussinSactown

        Can we trade Clary for a 5th-7th? Maybe for Mr. Irrelevant

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        Maybe a corner

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    I’m guessing TT has a LT that none of us are thinking about….

    • Sergio Quintero

      McKinnie?

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        lol Mills or Thomas or B. Williams I duno

        • RussinSactown

          It’s Leon Sandcastle on steroids.

  • RussinSactown

    Clary and Mouton for a 4th round pick. C’mon Telesco. Do it!

    • 619chargers4life

      awesome !!!

  • Sergio Quintero

    Sounds like Gavin escobar is going to be a Cowboy

  • DougM

    Prisco’s grade for Te’o: C-
    “I just think taking a two-down linebacker in the second round is too expensive. That’s what he is. I don’t like it.”

  • RussinSactown
    • RussinSactown

      It really depends how he’s used. He is a student of the game. He breaks down film. Is he a cover guy? No. But he can kill you in a zone package.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Ingram exploiting Watson couple times a year? sign me up

  • DougM

    Has Ernie seen the “Bust” Alert: Kenny Vaccaro story trending just above? Maybe that will make him feel better.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Hahahaha

  • DougM

    Just lost a good option in Swearinger. Oh well.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

    Man, I thought these NFL Network guys agreed to not announce the picks beforehand. They are talking about them – 3 and 4 in a row before they are announced.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith

    What happened to Armstead? All these draft boards had him gone by 2nd round, pick 5 (Detroit).

    • DougM

      Hope he keeps falling

    • boltingindiego

      they believe in reiff to be their lt.

  • RussinSactown

    Lacy to green bay. That’ll be a sick mix

  • http://twitter.com/BReisinger86 Brandon Reisinger

    Could it happen?! Could Armstead fall to us in the 3rd?

    • DougM

      Just got past Detroit. THey took Warford. Good OG.

    • DougM

      Worried about AZ taking him, or DAL maybe

  • boltingindiego

    mcfadden gone

  • DougM

    Honey Badger gone

  • boltingindiego

    i think were either picking armstead or a nt between jenkins and williams in the 3rd.

    • Sergio Quintero

      really good WR’s available Allen & Patton

      • boltingindiego

        yah but im thinkin were goin for a need more than a want.

        • Sergio Quintero

          You covered the guys who cover the biggest need

          • DougM

            Worried about DAL here. They may have jumped in to steal Armstead from us.

          • DougM

            phew, they went WR.

          • Sergio Quintero

            My concern is the Saints just ahead of the chargers

          • DougM

            Our pick is in. Waiting on Saints announcement.

          • boltingindiego

            ya they did lose their lt to chi

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    Barrett jones could be a good selection here

    • Sergio Quintero

      Nice pick, Armstead is still my number 1 choice

  • 619chargers4life

    Armstead here we com

    • Sergio Quintero

      Armstead to Saints, crushing

      • DougM

        Noooo!

      • DougM

        I continue to hate the Saints.

        • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

          Me too.

  • http://twitter.com/BReisinger86 Brandon Reisinger

    1 pick left till we get Armstead!!!

  • Sergio Quintero

  • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

  • http://www.facebook.com/lostkiara Stefanie Smith
