I know that the meetings with the different prospects can mean different things. It is an extra evaluation on all the players that the team is considering in their draft. The Chargers met with Kiko Alonso and Manti Te’o last season and when the Chargers had the opportunity to draft either of them, they went with Te’o instead. Both players had some character concerns that the team needed an extra evaluation on and the team decided to go with Te’o.
The Chargers taking these 3 players in the draft would not be surprising. They all fill needs on the roster and they all would be able to contribute to the team immediately. They would get talent to help out John Pagano’s defense and it also would get that receiver to push Vincent Brown for playing time.
In the next few rounds, the Chargers would have to get some depth for the offensive line, a return specialist and could possibly go after another player in the secondary like Aaron Colvin. They would just have to wait some time for Colvin to recover from his injury. The team would also need to find a nose tackle that can rotate up front with Sean Lissemore.
The three options may not be my favorite options in the draft, but they would give the team some immediate impact.
