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.

    Armstead or Jamar Taylor in the 2nd me thinks… Maybe Te’o or Watson if they fall that far

  • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

    We’re gonna draft a Kicker in round 2.

    Tom Telesco: I think differently!

    • 619chargers4life

      you will be ok lol

      • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

        Hahaha, sorry…I was suffering from bacon intoxication when I wrote that. I’m hoping for Armstead.

        • 619chargers4life

          lol no worries i was suffering from the same issue yesterday, a BLT bonanza lol

  • 619chargers4life

    that new gold lettering does look kind of good with that new hat. i wonder if they changed the pants at all. it would only make sense.

  • Julien Bélair

    bring armstead in

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      would love him now… or watson

      • joerockt

        Armstead will be long gone to the Fins or Lions.

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          Nope, Fins pic is now the Raiders. Lions will go WR. We will be money!

          • joerockt

            Ah, yup forgot that. Still would be surprised if they don’t take him. Though I thought the Raiders were looking for a T as well.

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            They don;t have any DT’s so I bet they go best DT and Lions go WR

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            is this comment topic going to stay at the top of the page for the entire draft? lol man those 5 likes got it floating up top

          • joerockt

            And every mock I’ve seen shows the Lions taking Armstead or Watson.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            we know how those mocks work.. haha… ok not everyone

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            and dont take that as a shot to you

          • joerockt

            We can hope and wish all we want but the Lions have a serious need at LT with Backus gone more than WR, and since they didn’t address it with their first pick, well…

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            Ya James’s Mock yesterday was 3 points off of Mike Mayocks terrible mock. But the trades did through most mocks out the window.

            Lions take a WR, My pick to click! There are 4-5 serious weapons left and Calvin can’t do everything.

        • 619chargers4life

          lions would go watson and the fins would have to trade up

      • Julien Bélair

        i don’t know which one i love the most

      • Rob Base

        Either one I’d be happy with. I had hard time with yesterday’s pick. I’m getting better though.

  • Brandon Rios

    DJ Fluker will make more of an impact than Vaccaro if we had drafted him.

  • blu3ny3llow

    Digging the new jersey….I think in the 2nd…Jesse Williams…Watson…..Taylor…or Larry warford

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Who is better Watson – Armstead – Warford? Armstead and Watson are almost the exact same size.

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

      I think Armstead has the highest upside and is the most athletic if we are talking tackle and has played LT. Watson played RT at Florida State yet is projected as a LT in the NFL. Not sure how that works. Warford would be cool too.. But i think if Clary kicks inside and Troutman is what we all think he is well be set and have quality bakcups

    • RussinSactown

      The only knock on Armstead was that he was a small school player but he’s a solid pick up. Watson’s a big dude but his NFL comparison gives me pause: Jared Gaither. Please pray he doesn’t have the attitude to match.

  • [email protected]

    If hes available I say take manti teo or jonathin franklin just saying

    • boltingindiego

      we have to many holes to spend a 2nd on a rb.

      • [email protected]

        Oops my bad I mean franklin like in later rounds, teo in this round shoulda been more specific but wishful thinking is if franklin is in there in 3rd or 4th

        • [email protected]

          Im not sold on mathews call me crazy or whatever but hes just not that good he always gets injured and his fumbles are horrible he is not our future rb at least I think so

        • boltingindiego

          i gotta man i was like damn franklin with the 2nd was way to high. i like him wouldn’t mind him in the 4th

  • arnie

    You all have fun, i’m leaving for work. Great first day for the Chargers though.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      already?!?!?!

      • arnie

        and i’m back. missed all the fun. but i’m catching up. LOL

  • tbell11

    If Armstead and Watson are gone before we pick then ILB Kevin Minter or Manti Te’o.

    • boltingindiego

      i wouldn’t mind gettin arthur brown to play ilb opposite butler or john jenkins if he falls to us.

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

    Watch them pass on Armstead, and pick Tyrann Mathieu.. lol.

    • Daniel Zamora

      Mathieu would be a great pick! Hes gonna be a beast in the NFL mark my words.

      • kris

        Been saying this over and over. He will be awesome in the NFL. Just like last year I predicted Burfict as an awesome LB, barely drafted and look at him now!

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

          Burfict is fantastic. Bengals always take chances and it usually pans out. Maybe it is the coach. I believe Burfict remained undrafted after the NFL draft. He sent letters around to teams and Bengals gave him a chance.

          • boltingindiego

            he was undrafted and the bengals gave him the chance.

      • boltingindiego

        losing a year of f ootball hurts and the nfl is much more physical than college. He was easily picked on by physical and taller recievers in college. example tenessee and bama.

  • Daniel Zamora

    We might have to work some trade/s to get the players we want. That’s what I see happening. We need to get one of the 3 ILBs T’eo, Minter or Arthur Brown personally i like Brown out of the 3. We also obviously need O-line so i think we so im already seeing Watson or Armstead in a Chargers jersey. Another position of need is DT. Jesse Williams or Jonathan Hankins would be very solid pick up I believe. FS Jonathan Cyprien would be a nice pick also. My surprise though is we snag Tyrann Mathieu. I think this guy guys is going to be a beast in the NFL!

    • DougM

      I hope you aren’t talking about round 2 for Mathieu. That is far too risky of a pick. MAYBE round 3, but even then, a huge gamble for a team that needs to get production out of these top picks. That dude does not have his head on straight.

      • boltingindiego

        hes a 4th rounder but some team will reach for him.

    • boltingindiego

      we need a ss because weddle is a fs.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Hey guys when the 2nd round starts would you guys mind not posting the pick before it’s announced? Sergio kinda killed like 5 picks for me yesterday lol, Call me old fashioned but I like to hear it live straight from the commish’s mouth.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      Man I almost got kicked off Boltsfromtheblue for telling them off on the Fluker bashing. They took down all my comments that pretty much called them a bunch of crying babies or drunk woman! lol Come on now, freedom of speech baby

      • 619chargers4life

        oh man ive never posted anything on that site but this morning i was so close to creating an account just to do the same thing as you lol

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          They wrote 4 different back to back to back to back things pretty mush bashing the guy. In my book that is not what true fans do, we go with it (like it or not) and know that the GM has bettered our team.

          I wrote that if they continued to act/write this way they would loose followers that are true bolt fans, then I got warned.

          • 619chargers4life

            yeah that dude is crazy

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            I might be banned in 3 -2 -1

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            hahaha

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            I called them Nazi Germany and how can I stick up for myself if your writers mock me to my face then remove my comments….lol

          • arnie

            it is not a site where you are free to share your opnions. aka say whatever you want.

      • RussinSactown

        I gave up on them when they were saying “Give Norv another chance” at the end of 2011-12

        • 619chargers4life

          wow thats scary

      • RussinSactown

        And I read the article over there. You’re lucky the kid didn’t call you a Dooodyhead or something like that.

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        will never understand why people remove comments…

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          It’s Nazi Germany over there, 3 comments removed, then I got mocked for being positive by one of their writers and told to deal with it.

          • 619chargers4life

            wow, i had no clue they got down like that over there. thats crazy. so sad.

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            read the top article on there about Fluker, im pushing the envelope hard core right now lol

        • RussinSactown

          If you can’t respond then some people choose to remove rather than discuss the issue.

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

          I like to have a little fun from time to time by editing my comments after people have responded to them. Just kidding… or am I?

        • arnie

          it’s like Russell said, in order to respond, you have to “have” an opinion. It’s just stats an numbers. no context. no football knowledge. no reading between the lines. no using your brain to reason and think for yourself.
          Just the numbers or you’re a moron. LOL

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            Haha

      • RussinSactown

        They are still ticked off about the pick. Good gravy Mr. Blanks, what did you do to them? Start telling yo mama joke?

      • arnie

        That’s how it is. They ride the stats and numbers pretty hard and serve it as gospel. If you don’t agree, you get jumped by the “community”, and removed like Reggie Bushes Heisman.

  • RussinSactown

    If we are going corner, I am going to toss out something different. As much as people would like to see the Honey Badger, I want McFadden. He has an almost 3 foot vertical and scored higher at the combine. Plus, we keep an Aztec home to roam a field that he knows really well.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i would love him in the 3rd or 4th

  • 619chargers4life

    yay chargers.com just posted Fluckers presser

    • 619chargers4life

      lol flucker lol i mean flukers lol

    • RussinSactown

      the language

      • 619chargers4life

        my bad lol

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Better not start off Armstead or Watson lol or this could be like yesterday

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      we might as well get it all done from the start.. ha

    • 619chargers4life

      DET and ARI stand in our way

  • RussinSactown

    Cyprien to Jacksonville.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      so much for that list i just made!!! scratch him off…

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    dang… just noticed the draft started and i am STILL at work!!!! why does this happen to me!!!!

    • RussinSactown

      I’m breaking a rule and streaming it. Shhhh

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    Alright… make your picks right now on who the Chargers will take

    • RussinSactown

      Let the rest of the league bring sexy back. Give us Armstead.

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        Armstead

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          Oh god no the Titans

    • 619chargers4life

      Armstead if he makes it

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

      Armstead

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      im going armstead also

  • RussinSactown

    Justin Hunter. Going wideout

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i guess they dont like Kenny Britt

      • boltingindiego

        i think they go 3 wide now with wright, britt, then hunter.

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        they still have another pick in 7 picks, probably go CB. Good for us

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    Chargers may make their selection while i am driving… and that would suck!!!!

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

      I’m still at work but discovered i could get NFL networks coverage on my computer

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      off in 15

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Niners gotta dump a ton of picks in some kind of trade right?

    • 619chargers4life

      they have to at some point i would think

    • 619chargers4life

      here goes DET

    • boltingindiego

      im thinkin they will either select 4 ppl today or trading this year picks for next year.

  • RussinSactown

    Zach Ertz to Philly

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

    I got a bad feeling Armstead goes here to Det.

  • 619chargers4life

    commercials commercials

  • Guest

    Ziggy Ansah with the Lions? That defensive front is sick!

  • boltingindiego

    cool no o-line so far

    • 619chargers4life

      were in the game

    • DougM

      phew, Lions were a team that would steal one. That helps…

      • boltingindiego

        im surprised because their o-line needed help.

    • DougM

      Bengals won’t take one either, they just re-signed Smith.

  • RussinSactown

    Darius Slay Corner to Lions

  • Cgoodness13

    So maybe we get warford?

  • DougM

    Chargers traded up! We’re next!

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

      O.o

    • Cgoodness13

      Really? Says bengals

      • Cgoodness13

        Ah now we traded up lol

    • 619chargers4life

      nah

  • Sergio Quintero

    is it for Manti Teo?

    • boltingindiego

      thats what i hear

    • DougM

      please no

  • RussinSactown

    Giovanni Bernard to Cincy. Hmmm.

  • RussinSactown

    We’re on the clock? Oh man! Here we go!

    • 619chargers4life

      E is gonna be pissed

  • RussinSactown

    Manti Te’o!

  • 619chargers4life

    lol

  • Cgoodness13

    MANTI TEO!!!!! OMG!!!!

  • DougM

    OK, I’m lost now. What is TT doing? Teo got manhandled by Alabama. How will he handle the NFL. This sucks. Could have taken a much better player here.

    • boltingindiego

      he had 1 bad game once he gets used to nfl speed/ competition he will be fine.

      • DougM

        he doesn’t have any speed.

        • RussinSactown

          Linear 40 speed or game speed? There’s a huge difference in them.

    • RussinSactown

      Put him with Butler and the rest of the linebacker corps and he will be a monster.

  • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

    WHAT??

  • 619chargers4life

    i think we trade up again for a Tackle . i hope

    • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

      I hope so too.

    • Sergio Quintero

      concur

  • [email protected]

    Manti teo fellas!!!!!!!!

  • Sergio Quintero

    I thought he was going 23-25 to Vikings, great value

    • 619chargers4life

      i agree

  • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

    Only cost us our 4th round pick. I’m ok with that.

    • 619chargers4life

      word!!!

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

    Aww geez, we are going to have drama with this guy.

  • Sergio Quintero
