San Diego Chargers Round 3 NFL Draft Open Thread

Jan 7, 2013; Miami, FL, USA; Notre Dame Fighting Irish linebacker Manti Te

These open threads are great to discuss all the madness happening in the draft. In order to start with a fresh slate, we are opening up a new thread for round 3!

Manti Te’o was brought in with our round 2 selection and it was met with a mixed reaction. I am excited about the selection. Look past the catfish and look at the football field. The kid is a playmaker and had a ton of interceptions as a middle backer.

He did have issues against Alabama, but some guys are allowed to have a bad game sometimes.

Anyway, who are you guys hoping for in round 3.

      Ooh…

      • Kenneth Thorpe

        A few failed drug test don’t worry me. He was at LSU. What else is there to do in Lousiana?

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          He just needs a medical card for it

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            I like how they show Tyron and his family live on TV and then start talking all sorts of crap about him….he looked pissed and happy lol

          • Julien Bélair

            he is not the kind of player telesco wants on the roster. telesco wants player who loves football and have a good attitude. honey badger may be a good player but he is too stupid

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            does he have 2 kids?

          • Julien Bélair

            yep

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

            If Coach McCoy wants the player and Telesco doesn’t, is Telesco running the show or McCoy?

          • Julien Bélair

            kind of both. a gentlemen agreement

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

            Hey, Teo isn’t the brightest bulb and we moved up to get that guy. Teo won’t be joining the Mensa club any time soon.

      Going to Arizona!

  • http://twitter.com/FooIio Calum

    Warford would have been good for SD. I’m hoping Armstead is there. I guess we might go CB though.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      That was a bummer

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    Hahahah… Fan announces the pick and gets booed! Hilarious!

    • Per Ola Öberg

      worth it!

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    That sucks

  • @JJ_Dirty

    I hope we get Armstead…kid is a diamond in the rough

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      That could be good too

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    Barrett jones would be great here too

    • @JJ_Dirty

      Didnt see you wrote this! I agree 100%

  • http://twitter.com/FooIio Calum

    …. Perhaps we’ll trade down now, of all things.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Armstead is still there!!!

    • @JJ_Dirty

      I like him/Jones! Id be happy with either or

  • @JJ_Dirty

    Or even Barrett Jones…hes a beast

  • [email protected]

    Ima go with a sexy pick idc if im wrong jonathan franklin

  • http://twitter.com/FooIio Calum

    Sugar! Gone one pick early…

  • 619chargers4life

    Armstead

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    Barrett jones please!!! Would be perfect fit and can play left tackle

  • @JJ_Dirty

    Barrett Jones OR Armstead…id be stoked with either or. Ive been big on Terron all draft but Jones could be crucial to our success

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    NT Brandon Williams Please!

  • http://twitter.com/FooIio Calum

    Keenan Allen gents! Steal?

  • @JJ_Dirty

    Armstead is out…BARRETT it is

  • 619chargers4life

    BS

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Fucking Saints, I knew it. Don’t get nervous TT!

    • Julien Bélair

      armstead will be a back up for at least 2-3 years. i didn’t want to see him in bolts uniform

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        No he wont, watch him start next year dude

        • Julien Bélair

          gettin burn all day long

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

          I agree. Armstead will be starting. Mayock says he will start next year, but other analysts on NFL.com says this guy could be the biggest value of this year’s draft.

  • 619chargers4life

    Dunlap it is ppl

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

      Or FA.

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

    I CAN’T STAND THE SAINTS!!!! IT’S LIKE EVERYTHING THEY DO GETS IN OUR FRIGGIN’ WAY!

  • @JJ_Dirty

    Barrett can play LT and play it well

  • @JJ_Dirty

    Wow…Keenan Allen

    • Julien Bélair

      great value ! he should be a first rd pick

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    whoaaaa He was rated 1st round

    • Julien Bélair

      say goodbye to ronald meachem

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        right….kinda weird but cool

        • Julien Bélair

          yes but i guess we will give him the time in camp to prove himself to mccoy

      • Brandon Rios

        It’s Robert Meachem

        • http://twitter.com/FooIio Calum

          lol

        • Julien Bélair

          funny

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

        Meachem won’t be going this year… Too much of a cap hit. AJ left us in a “guaranteed money bind”. Why would you think they would drop Meachem? You don’t think they will see what he has for one year?

    • 619chargers4life

      interestingly enough we got 3 projected 1st rounders in 3 rounds ha

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

        agreed!

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        Yes!!!

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    We can run one bad ass 4 man spread if we want now

    • Julien Bélair

      phillip has to be happy

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      This will be sick

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

    OK… I didn’t see any of these picks coming…. lol.

  • [email protected]

    I am actually happy with keenan allen looks like a beast to me :)

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

    Now I’m waiting for the “Chargers sign McKinnie” press release… hahahaha!

    • [email protected]

      I know right!! Im there with ya

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    Oh my gosh… Have I told you how I love Allen?

    • 619chargers4life

      oh snap here we go

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

      Tee-Hee…

    • [email protected]

      Hell yea we got a steal was projected to go in the 1st rd and got him at 3rd? I love it!!! Tom telesco you know what your doing! 1 question do you think jonathan franklin will be there for us in 5th rd I really do like his play of football

      • Brandon Rios

        Franklin might be gone by then. Hopefully Stefan Taylor from stanford will be there

        • Julien Bélair

          i would prefer brandon williams but i shouldn’t be there

        • [email protected]

          Knile davis?

    • Per Ola Öberg

      more than if Armstead would have droped one more spot?

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        Am I more excited? Yea. But I like getting best player available. I also like sexy picks

        • Per Ola Öberg

          haha but what if Armstead fell to us in the third? After all that talk about him in mock (and all the raging fans after picking a RT in first). It was just a question, Im very satisfied. Even if i had some mixed feelings until I had the time to let it sink in

  • 619chargers4life

    3 projected 1st rounders in 3 rounds is awesome

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

    I just saw a short meet with the media (like maybe a minute) with TT talking about why they drafted Manti Teo. Wonder where McCoy was.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Maybe being grumpy somewhere

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

        Yep. As TT hogs the mic and the spotlight. I swear I see McCoy giving TT dirty looks. lol.

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

    Hey, here is a positive piece coming out on Keenan Allen. Guy is pretty good from the sound of it.

    http://www.mercurynews.com/cal-bears/ci_23118354/cals-keenan-allen-third-round-pick-by-san

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Should have been drafted a long whole ago… Such a steal

  • 1961 Fan

    With the 3rd round pick the San Diego Chargers add the tenth WR to the roster; where is the Lt OLine guy you really needed?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      There was none to select… Should we have just picked one just to pick one?

  • afiguere1

    Hey fellow Bolts fans, now that all the picks are in, put on your GM hat and let me know what you think of this re-draft. Thanks!

    RD – OVR PK – POS – NAME
    1 – 11 – DE – Sharrif Floyd
    2 – 45 – OG – Larry Warford
    3 – 74 – OT – Terron Armstead
    4 – 110 – WR – Quinton Patton
    5 – 145 – OLB – Brandon Jenkins
    6 – 179 – CB – Jordan Poyer
    7 – 221 – N/A – traded to Dallas w/ pick 76 to move up to pick 74

    Value: Every player listed could have been drafted at the above spots and had higher consensus grades than where I have us taking them above. I even simulated a trade that jumped us ahead of where Terron Armstead went, even though us not taking Fluker would’ve pushed all Tackles back (i.e. we probably could’ve kept pick 221).

    Need: This addresses most, but not all, of our needs (man, we had a lot – how’d things get so bad?). Were we to keep the 221st pick as mentioned above, I would’ve addressed ILB withSteve Beauharnais or QB with Zac Dysert.

    Caveat: I realize that the draft is like dominoes, and that each pick affects each subsequent pick. With that in mind, I left significant buffers between picks to account for this.

  • ALASKA PAT

    if we traded our #1 and #2 to oakland, We could have gotten the left tackle we so desperately needed at #3 overall, and the raiders would have moved up from #12 to #11. YEA, i know, inter- division trades are rare, BUT, it happens. With that being said, I still like our draft a lot.BUT WHERE IS OUR LEFT TACKLE??????
