Everyone has their group of players that they are hoping for the San Diego Chargers to select with the 25th selection in the draft. Here are my Top 5 players at this time for that spot:
- Jason Verrett – I am not a huge fan of taking a corner in the first round of the draft, but if it has to be done, it would be with Jason Verrett. He is one of the best talents in this draft at the position and would be a huge upgrade at corner for the team. He would immediately be looking to take over the starting gig at corner and could be huge for the defense.
- Dee Ford – Ford’s potential coming off of the edge is out of this world. He gets off of the ball quick and can force quarterbacks to get rid of the football before they want and that could give the secondary some opportunities to pick off the ball. Imagine having Melvin Ingram and Dee Ford coming off of the edge for the defense for the next few seasons.
- Odell Beckham Jr. – This seems more like a dream than anything. I don’t know if Tom Telesco has the balls to take a wide receiver in the first round, but this offense could be one of the best in the league by adding a talent like this onto that side of the ball.
- Kyle Fuller – We need help in that secondary. Fuller is another player in the draft that could be an instant help to the defense. He could start immediately and make some good things happen for the team.
- Louis Nix – Nix is the best nose tackle in the draft. The team could use his wide body in the middle to clog things up and allow his linebacker to do work. Is the need at nose tackle larger than the needs at the corner position though?
Those are my top 5 players for the Chargers to select in the draft. Who do you have at your top 5?
