Who Should The Chargers Target on Day 3?

The draft starts up early tomorrow morning, but we don’t have a 4th round draft pick after trading up to get Manti Te’o. We will have to wait around till the 5th round to make our selection, unless we make another trade. Here are a few players that I would love to see the Chargers target when their turn comes up.

Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama: I don’t think he will last long enough for the Chargers to snatch him up, but if he is there, he would be great to rotate in on the defensive line.

Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA: he definitely won’t last, but I didn’t think he would still be available at this point. If we is available, he would add some depth at runningback.

Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State: the corner depth is deep in this draft. It would be awesome to grab Poyer to rotate into the secondary.

Barrett Jones, C/G, Alabama: Jones is versatile on the line and I was actually hoping that the Chargers picked him in the 3rd. Love that Keenan Allen was taken, but would not have been disappointed with that selection.

Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse: Thomas is a thumper. He will punish running backs and looks to make the big hit.

Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina: has the potential to be the best runningback in the class, but he is also coming back from a gnarly injury. He can be a steal in round 5

Denard Robinson, ??, Michigan: who knows how he can help on the team, but he is dynamic when he has the football in his hands.

  • Rob Base

    Poyer is on my wish list! I’d be happy with Thomas also.
    Too bad we don’t have a 4th rounder.

  • tubbs45

    We need another NT! We have zero depth there.

    • Ernie Padaon

      So bad! If not, we better give Casey Hampton a buzz

  • Sergio Quintero

    Montari Hughes is a NT I would like to draft in 5th round

  • Pels04

    Ya NT needs to be next and at this point we better hit up free agency for a LT

  • Ernie Padaon

    The phone for Bryant McKinnie better be ringing! He is needed out west

    • Sergio Quintero

      Very much concur!!

      • Stefanie Smith

        Why did someone give you a thumbs down? What was wrong with what you said? Not to worry. I cancelled it out and gave you a thumbs up.

        • Ernie Padaon

          Right!!! Someone hating!!

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    I’m thinking Jordan Mills in 5th, so many good players left the fourth round is stacked. Wish we could get Corny Washington from Georgia or the best NT available. Man if we only had some trade bait to get back into the 4th, Saints did it trading Ivory.

  • CPope1990

    As an Aussie I would love to see Jesse Williams in a Chargers uniform!

  • Julien Bélair

    i want jones

    • Stefanie Smith

      Me too. I wanted Jones way back. But anytime soon will do.

  • Edward Moretti

    Kwame Geathers and John Wetzel (unless we somehow trade up to get Williams or Quisenberry).

    • Edward Moretti

      But would really love to get Schwenke if we didn’t have Nick and Molk there already.

    • Edward Moretti

      It appears we signed Geathers already to UDFA contract. Almost got it right!

  • C.Steele

    Lattimore! Please & Thank you!

    • Ernie Padaon

      Would be another win for Telesco!

  • 1961 Fan

    Do think they (Bolts) should address the LT position, or get Rivers some new track shoes?

    • Ernie Padaon

      It needs to be addressed still… But nobody available is worthy of starting. Unless we take jones and play him at tackle

    • Cgoodness13

      FA probally, I pray Starks other McKinley

  • Bernie Thomas

    Only problem with Lattimore is you would be adding another fragile running back. Thats the reason they need to draft one in the first place. I would like to see Denard Robinson. I can see an Antwan Randle El type career out of him. But I would also add three San Diego kids to the mix here, OT David Quessenberry (SJSU), WR Kenny Stills (Okla), S Tony Jefferson (Okla.)

    • Stefanie Smith

      They are taking Lattimore off the boards on a lot of the teams. He has had a ton of major surgeries.

      They just got done talking about Denard Robinson. He would be a good one. Yes.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Not to encourage an AJ Smith state of mind, but there is still things that can be done. There were smaller regional combines and tryouts. I am sure TT has guys on his list to contact.

    And always remember that Antonio Gates was a walk on, Arian Foster was undrafted. So they are out there. Hopefully, our GM finds them.

  • Cgoodness13

    Thomas or jones. But from what I’ve read and seen, jones used to be a LT in his early career and was pretty dominant, very versitle.

  • 1961 Fan

    After the sixth round I still don’t see a Left Offensive Tackle in the drafted group. It’s like one guy e/mailed me and said he agreed with me; this draft sucks and the Bolts went for cheap and not for need. Get the first aid kit ready Rivers is going to need to be patched up after every game.Wait until after that first reg season game on National T. V. (MNF) and the Bolts get their butts kicked.
    Write it down !!!
