Round 4: Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor

Richardson has been sliding in the draft, but the talent is there. If there is anyone that can get him to play at a high level, it would be Coach Joe D. Bring in a big dude that has the skills and Coach will mold him into a talented player up front for the team. Again, Richardson is versatile and has played tackle in his college career.

Round 5: Brent Urban, DE, Virginia

Urban would add some much-needed depth on the defensive line. He was brought into college to become a 3-4 defensive end, but was switched to defensive tackle when the team flipped to a 4-3 defense. Urban is a big man and could get some opportunities to play up front. He would give Kendall Reyes some competition up front.

Round 6: James Wilder Jr, RB, Florida State

Wilder is a big back that can pound on defenses and would be a good player for the Chargers to use on short yardage situations and he also could take the rock in times that Ryan Mathews is not healthy enough to take the reins. Wilder would be a perfect compliment to the backs that we have on the roster. He will just keep pounding.

  • Julien Bélair

    I like the first if Verrett and Dee ford are gone

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    I don’t mind this draft if we get our NT in FA, would’nt be mad at all if this happened. I like Richardson in the 4th, he’s a giant and I bet coach D could make him a beast. Imagine if Richardson lost like 10-15 lbs got alittle quicker and would be standing next to Fluker. That side of the line would be insanely huge.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i just dont see any other option than to get a nose in free agency. we could wait and hope for louis nix, but that would be a stupid move to make.

  • BuhaySD

    I’ve been saying CB or NT in the 1st but i have to admit, I wouldn’t be mad if this is how our draft ended up. Not familiar with the 3rd or 5th rd guys but overall i think this would be a solid draft. We’d just have to fill NT and some CB depth in FA. Go Bolts!!

  • Tazzster

    I was thinking that we need to take a CB in the first round, but the talent at CB is deep in this draft. If we could swing a deal for Justin Gilbert, I would say get it done… but that is probably unlikely. I am guessing TT will hold off and pick up a CB in the second round, myabe 3rd… maybe 2nd and 3rd.

    Also, if we look at last year’s draft I think TT has the tendacy to draft the best player available. Hopefully in the first couple of rounds its the best Defensive player available.

    In addition, last year’s offense was good, even while battling injuries all over the place. I have a hard time using the #1 pick on a WR because we already have so many options for Phillip. Only one guy can catch the ball each down.

    With all that said, I am starting to think OLB/DE will be our pick in the first round. I would not be suprised to see Dee Ford or a similar player at that spot. Followed up by a CB in the 2nd round.

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

      This makes total sense to me.

  • Nick Mansoor

    Do you guys think TT would trade up? maybe to snag Gilbert or Dennard? I mean he did move up to grab Teo last season.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i dont think either of them are worth it

      • Nick Mansoor

        who would you trade up for Ernie?

        • Sergio Quintero

          If by some miracle Khalil Mack get out of the top 10, I would break protocol and chase that monster.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          Clowney. Mack. Nobody else

    • Gunnar Martin

      No.

  • ioane

    I’m sorry, don’t mean to offend you, but I really don’t like this draft. I wouldn’t mind ODB, but I would rather have Lee. I also don’t like Joyner, I would rather have Fuller.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      not offensive at all.. what do you not like about joyner?

      • Gunnar Martin

        He’s small Ernie! Small!!!

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          He wants to draft Old Dirty Bastard, he’s dead man….lets have some respect here ;p

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

            HA! Points!!!!

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

          Hahaha.. that made me laugh out loud. I do really like the Zumwalt & Richardson pick a lot tho Ernie. But, where’s your center? Also, have you totally written off Floors? Just curious.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            Floors??? I know we need a center, but it might need to wait till next year and keep Ohrnberger again as the backup

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

            I went back and edited It. Stupid phone. One day I will learn to not trust Swype to get everything right the first time.. lol.. I meant Floyd.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            Yea. Don’t think Floyd comes back. They likely want to know before free agency starts and dude still has pain in his neck. I don’t see him making it back

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

            Say it ain’t so Ernie!!!! :* (

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          Watch him ball though. That’s all that should matter. He makes up for that size

    • BlueBoltFan

      I don’t think Fuller will be there in the 2nd (at least by the time we pick). But if he is, then I’m with you! That’s a flat out sprint to the podium.

  • ioane

    I would be happy if we ended up with:

    1. Zack Martin T/G – I really like him. He can fill in as a solid guard and also be our soon to be LT.

    2. Kyle Fuller CB: I think he’s up there with the top corners. He’s not as fast as Gilbert but he’s a better cover corner who also has play making abilities.

    3. Marcus Smith OLB

    4. Donte Moncrief WR

    5. Dri Archer KR

    6. Beau Allen NT

    7. Damian Williams RB – sleeper IMO

    • sditalianman

      Nice draft, but no way WR Donte Moncrief falls to us in the 4th, I like him in the 3rd… I highly doubt CB Kyle Fuller is there in the 2nd, I think he goes to someone in the first… Beau Allen is just not strong enough as a NT, he fits better as a 4-3 DT.

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

      Dang! I am postng an article tomorrow where I have Martin in the first for the exact same reasons you mentioned.. then Fuller in the second? That would be SICK! You think Fuller will still be there at 50?

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Here’s my first Mock of this year- This is after we sign a NT and CB in FA:

    1st: Dee Ford DE/OLB (this dude is growing on me, great proday today and would give us a sick pass rush)

    2nd: Keith McGill CB (love this guy after watching combine, great hands and he’s tall)

    3rd: Donte Moncrief: WR (would be a great number #2 guy, love the breakdowns of his game)

    4th: Cyril Richardson G (Huge talented mofo needs coaching up, we have the best in the biz at that).

    5th: Will Sutton: DT (If Will slips into the 5th he’s talented just had a brutal combine, I would use him only when we run our 4-3 hybrid, he’s a decent pass rushing DT with Freeney – Lieg – Sutton – Ford as the line and Give Reyes a few more breathers and it would keep Suttons fat butt fresh when we are in the 3-4 and he’s getting a rest. If He’s gone by this point Aaron Murray QB (CBJ glides off into the sunset ever so slowly with harps playing in the background).

    6th: James Wilder Jr. (Ernie sold me on him, sounds like a fit).

    7th: Michael Sam DE/OLB (I would take him and let him compete for a backup spot with English, C.Law) Would suck if he goes undrafted, he did have 14 sacks so he’s very talented, he just blew at the combine.

    • Gunnar Martin

      Lol at CBJ’s happy ending

    • Tazzster

      I think McGill is a 3rd round guy.

      I know everyone seems to want a WR… im not sure why, but if we are going to pick up an offensive player, lets add depth at running back.

      Move McGill to the 3rd round and plug in Bishop Sanky in the 2nd.

    • Sergio Quintero

      Real good draft Blanks, I like Roberson a little more than McGill more ready to play, and i’ll switch you Paul Richardson for Moncrief, but a first class mock.

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      Instead of Sutton because I think he’ll be gone…Lets go with Aaron Colvin.

      • Gunnar Martin

        I will hit something very hard if we draft Colvin. Because I will be a very, very happy person.

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

          Easy turbo.. lol.

    • Marcel West-Bailey

      I’d swap Keith McGill for Stanley Jean Baptise. I think McGill doesn’t play with a lot of heart and Baptise does (well he looks like he does).

    • gpack17

      not a fan of mcgill..if you watch game tape and not highlights, he tends to give a good cushion on his receivers much like cro did.

    • jamfed

      Dee Ford’s back surgery scares me. I heard he had two lower vertibre fused together. That’s an OLD MANS surgery. That’s RED FLAG #1.

      #2 is he weighted in at 244 lbs. IMO, that’s a situational type of guy. He needs to play heavier, but adding 20 lbs might be bad for his back.
      3# he’s a jabber jaw, and he really has nothing important to say. Lose Lips Sink Ships!

    • gpack17

      also keep in mind our picks are towards the end of each round..theres no way richardson slips to the end of the 4th..let alone the end of the 3rd..also no way sutton is there in 5 at all..

      the only concern i have with ford is he reminds me a lot of ingram..we would have 2 short dinosaur armed outside backers rushing the passer every 3rd down if we got him..

  • Nick Lee

    I like this a lot. I agree with BuhaySD, we do need a NT somewhere. There is always FA though. With Rivers dropping back with Allen and Beckham running around getting open, you can chalk up another 4400 yards for Philip.

  • sditalianman

    1. CB-Jason Verrett, TCU / best available
    2. CB-Keith McGill, Utah / or SJB, P. Desir, one of the Florida corners
    3. WR-Donte Moncrief, Ole Miss / LB-Marcus Smith, Louisville
    4. LB-Jordan Zumwalt, UCLA / OT-Joel Bitonio, Nevada
    5. OT-James Hurst, UNC / WR-Jeff Janis, UTSW
    6. RB-DeAnthony Thomas, Oregon / RB-James Wilder Jr, Florida St
    7. TE-Colt Lyerla, Oregon / ? RB-Dri Archer, Kent State / or someone with speed and return skills

    • sditalianman

      Obviously there’s a huge need at the cornerback position, fortunately this class is deep, though I think they will go quickly so why not draft 2 corner’s early

      • Anthony95

        Replace Verrett with Nix in RD 1 and Fuller for McGill in RD 2. Pass rusher in RD 3, don’t need OT we need OG like Richardson that would work RD 4/5, P Desir RD 4/5, RB in RD 6 yours are fine, there are several options, and another KR/WR RD 7. Colt Lyerla might go undrafted
        -we don’t need to reach at WR. We have Allen set at #1, going to employ more 2 TE sets with Green actually running a pattern, plus Royal in slot, Woodhead out of backfield, and wr2 last chance for Brown another year removed from injury.
        -if Brown doesn’t pan out then 2015 draft one of two top priorities will be WR.

        • sditalianman

          Nix likely won’t be there at pick 25, and no way Fuller falls to us in the second round… I put a realistic mock, not a fanasty mock… And yes we do need an Offensive Tackle (Left Tackle) we have no depth, one of the tackle’s I mention in my mock plays guard as well (J. Bitonio), King Dunlap is not the long term solution at Left Tackle… The problem that I have with OG C. Richardson is that he’s too slow, his effort is in question (Senior Bowl) as well as his “passion for the game” reminds me of former Charger OG Toniu Fonoti with his weight problems… And YES we should go afther a WR to complement Allen, we need more weapons and “speed” as TT mentioned.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Give me a pass rusher at least in one the first 3 rounds, how about Demarcus Lawrence or Attaochu, Martin in the 3rd round instead of Zumwalt.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Thought about doing that, but Zumwalt fits in a number of areas at linebacker. We still have no depth in the middle and he can still play off the edge

  • blu3ny3llow

    Love this mock draft…but is Joyner that much better than Steve Williams??…. can’t wait for May to get here

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i think he is better than Williams. He can also play at safety if he needs to

  • rell dogg

    I like this mock draft we sound like we’re ready to be contenders for the Super Bowl lets go boltz

  • Daryl Peek

    Gotta go defense with the first pick. I’ve said this a few times before the combine and I’m even more convinced now.
    Martavis Bryant in the second or third round will be one of the sleeper draft picks this year just like KA13 was last season.

    Bryant showed out at the combine running a 4.42 40 the 5th fastest of all the WR, and faster than his more acclaimed teammate Watkins. Playing opposite the #1 WR in the nation, Sammy Watkins, who caught 101 passes for 1464 yards and 12 touchdowns, Bryant was overshadowed. Still, Bryant was a major deep threat for the Tigers this past season, catching 42 balls for 848 yards and 7 touchdowns at 20.2 YPC. That’s M80 stretch the field like!

  • BlueBoltFan

    I like Carl Bradford over Zumwalt. Bradford is much stronger than his numbers (check his 400lb power clean video on the interwebs). He can rush the passer, drop into coverage, run and hit, and plays with violence.

  • Michael

    This is a great article, nice picks, how wouldwe fix the nt iissue?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      would have to get someone in free agency as well.

  • gpack17

    keep in mind that our pick in each round is towards the end of the round..so cyril richardson in the 4th is highly unlikely unless he slips a tonnnn.. joyner i would like as a nickel guy but we kind of need an outside corner especially if they try to use williams speed as a slot corner..my hopeful draft looks like this:
    1: Louis Nix (NT)- solves a big problem at nt..will fill more gaps helping reyes and luiget on the outside and the olbs a better shot coming off the edge
    2: Stanley Jean-Baptiste (CB)- at 6’2, he is always making a play on the ball like a receiver also has closing speed on short dump offs and running plays. Like him a lot more than Mcgill, he tends to play at the hip of receivers instead of leaving room, and as a former receiver he understands their routes well.
    3: Cyril Richardson (OG)- Have a feeling he will slip, not sure if he makes it to the end of the 3rd though. If he doesnt, I wouldn’t mind getting Craig Loston here.
    4: Brandon Coleman (WR)- 6’5 receiver from rutgers, often throw screens to him and can make a big play on a short pass or a deep pass. Kind of reminds me of Plaxico except without the whole gun problem.
    5: Ronald Powell or Devon Kennard (OLB): These guys were both top prospects coming out of high school and college didn’t quite pan out the way it was supposed to for them. Fortunately for us, they will be lower round picks with high potential. Both can get to the quarterback.
    6: James Wilder Jr (RB): Hard runner, could develop into a solid goal line, 3rd down guy. It was kind of a toss up here for me between Wilder and taking a chance to develop a guy like Sentreal Henderson.
    7: Aaron Colvin (CB): if available, colvin could be a steal and could help us in the long run. If not colvin, then wouldn’t mind seeing them take another DL for depth.

  • michael walker

    we will pick our boy fuller at 25, this mock is ass
