Building for the future is the right thing to do! Especially if you have Dwight Freeney, Larry English and Thomas Keiser. Their contracts are up at the end of the 2014 season. Here are my scouting results for the 2014 pass rushing class.

Dee Ford out of Auburn has great movement and a good burst out of his stance. He knows how to get skinny, plays with a high motor, but needs improvement with his hands technique. Also, gets lost when the run play is coming his way. Unfortunately hes was always banged up and did not have a full season in college.
3 Stars 1st round projection

Scott Crichton out of Oregon State; more of a 4-3 rusher and plays with aggression, he does not posses much speed or burst for a 3-4 linebacker.
1 1/2 Stars  2nd round projection

Trent Murphy from Stanford would be coming in as a run stuffing linebacker. He is stronger than his combine numbers indicate. He’s not very fluid but knows how to use his hands well.
2 Stars  2nd round projection

Marcus Smith played at Louisville looking as a hybrid defender. He played all over the line, has good awareness, even blows plays up before it gets started.  He is great against the run, but little athletic ability and gets diverted pass the quarterback with little effort.
4 stars  2-3 round projection

Jeremiah Attaochu out of Georgia Tech has a good burst around the corner with great footwork. Does not posses much of a bull rush but has decent straight line speed. He seems to wear down as the game goes on.
2 1/2 Stars   2-3 round projection

Trevor Reilly coming out of Utah has good athleticism. He was asked to play in coverage, more of one denominational player (speed rusher)  but not much of a bull rusher. This 26 years old rookie might be drafted later on in the rounds cause of his age.
2 Stars 2-3 round projection

    Give me dee Ford or Jason verrett I’ll be happy

  • gpack17

    wouldn’t mind taking a look ronald powell or devon kennard. Both were top prospects coming out of high school and have a lot of potential. Similar to a vontaze burfict type.

    • navw21

      Is that with or without the off field issues?

  • Sergio Quintero

    Haven’t decided if a corner (Verrett or Fuller) or Dee Ford at pick 25, I guess for today I’ll say Ford, because I like the corners in the 2nd round more than the pass rushers.

    The injury red flag does make a little nervous on Ford, but that burst is rare, I would love to be able to pick on some slow footed RT with Ford.

    • lilHurricane

      At this point in time we need a corner in the first round. unless we get a big name in free agency which we probably dont want to go down that route again.

      • Sergio Quintero

        The chargers should invest in corner and nose tackle in free agency, my guess is more along the line of useful starters rather than players that will get the fanbase excited, lets put like this its a lot more probable that the chargers sign Tarrell Brown CB & Earl Mitchell NT, than Alterreaun Verner & Linval Joseph.

        With those useful starters you have to improve the pass defense through the draft, for me Ford in the first & a corner like Jean-Baptiste, Roberson in the 2nd round as an example.

        • lilHurricane

          DT you can spend a little more money on in free agency but corner now that cox is gone has to be in the first round. outside linebackers we can get one in next year draft but a corner specially with the talent in this draft. got to get one

  • navw21

    In a perfect world if all these guys are available at 25 I would go in this order. Gilbert, Dennard, Louis Nix III, Verett, Ealy, Ford, Fuller. Knowing that the top two or three maybe four will probably be gone by 25.

    • Sergio Quintero

      Nix depends if they sign a NT, the top 2 corners should be gone, the remaining 4 seems the most logical cluster, I would add 3 WRs to the group because they are too good to not consider in Lee, Beckham & Cooks.

      • navw21

        I think Lee will be gone by our pick. Beckham would be a good option after Fuller, Cooks seems like a slot WR to me and we already have Royal, and maybe best spot for Vincent Brown.

    • Julien Bélair

      Mine goes like this : Gilbert, Nix, Verrett, Ford, Dennard, WR

  • Bolt up!

    News broke that James jones wide receiver from Green Bay said and quoted ,wants to play for chargers or colts if he doesn’t re-sign,not bad

    • Sergio Quintero

      Don’t love his age, 29 right now will play at 30 when the season rolls around, but is the type WR the chargers need a take the top of the defense guy.

      But NT & CB come first, have a doubt there will be enough money for Jones, the early reports have the chargers 7.5 million in cap room after yesterday’s cuts.

      • navw21

        I know he has some injury history but what about Hakeem Nicks and we sign him to a one or two year incentive deal. Has to stay on the field to be paid. He’s only like 26 I think.

        • Sergio Quintero

          Sign a NT and corner first, and lets see how much money is left, in my view they need more money to work with, meaning restructures with Clary & Johnson, and some creative accounting with Rivers, Gates & Weddle.

          • navw21

            I really hope we can sign Linval Joseph to start FA and maybe a corner like Tarrell Brown.

        • CALiFORNiAkiD

          I rather go WR through the Draft

          Maybe consider Kenny Britt in Free Agency….On a 1yr prove it deal

      • Bolt up!

        Yea I agree with you I was just sharing the news,I had just read it when I wrote this and thought I should post it but I want a young receiver like lee,cooks,beckham,Benjamin if all other bet options are gone of course as I once stated

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Dee Ford, Jeremiah Attaochu and Marcus Smith.

    • Gunnar Martin

      Agreed. I’m a little surprised Attaochu doesn’t have a first round grade by now. A lot of people even have him dropping to the third.

      • CALiFORNiAkiD

        I can’t see it happening but he would be a steal in the 3rd round.

        • Gunnar Martin

          Most definitely.

  • lilHurricane

    Linebackers will not be the our first round pick.
