NFL Mocks Chooses WR Alshon Jeffery With Chargers 13th Pick

By Ernie Padaon

Our homeboys over at NFL Mocks just placed up their most recent mock draft for the 2012 class. If the season ended today, we would be sitting with lucky pick number 13! Here is who NFL Mocks has us selecting with that pick:

13. San Diego Chargers (4-7)-Alshon Jeffery, WR, South CarolinaSomething is wrong with Philip Rivers this year. Is it the weapons surrounding him (the loss of Darren Sproles?), an injury? I’m not sure. But maybe the Chargers feel that they don’t have enough WR depth and talent so they grab the very talented, but not productive-enough Alshon Jeffery. I personally feel the Chargers should look cornerback here with his pick.

IF the Chargers move on from Vincent Jackson in the offseason, then we would have to look at potential players at receiver. Jeffrey is that prototypical Chargers receiver standing at 6’4″ with a lot of athleticism.

Check out his tape here:

Receiver shouldn’t be our top priority going into the draft, but a lot of that depends on what we plan to do in free agency.
