RotoWorld Lists Chargers Biggest Need Positions For The Draft

RotoWorld just posted the biggest 3 need positions for all of the AFC teams. Here is what Evan Silva listed as our biggest needs:

Outside linebacker: Jarret Johnson was a worthwhile addition in free agency, but the Chargers still haven’t fixed their pass-rushing quandary. Johnson is an edge-setting, run-stopping linebacker. This is a position at which San Diego could very easily use the No. 18 overall pick.

Running back: The Chargers expect a breakout year from 2010 first-round pick Ryan Mathews, but can’t feel comfortable about their backfield depth. With Mike Tolbert gone to Carolina, look for GM A.J. Smith to invest a second- or third-round selection on another versatile running back.

Safety: Free agent bargain-bin pickup Atari Bigby is only a short-term stopgap, and 2010 fourth-round pick Darrell Stuckey hasn’t panned out as the organization hoped. The Chargers’ GM is known to be high on Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith as a potential second-round pick.

Running back comes up on the list again!? Kiper just said yesterday that the Bolts could go after a running back in round 2 of the draft. These experts all have runningback as a priority for us to go after. Can A.J. just pick up that veteran runningback already (Ronnie Brown or Justin Forsett PLEASE)?

Safety and pass rusher are definitely are top two priorities and the third should be offensive line depth. There is nobody behind Jared Gaither and Jeromey Clary on the offensive line, unless we want to use Dombo out there again. NO THANK YOU! We still are waiting to see if Mario Henderson is going to sign also. You can never get enough depth on the offensive line.

Pass rush, safety, o-line! That’s the top 3 priorities I see. Anybody else see it different?
