In the next round, Kiper has the Chargers selecting a wide receiver instead of taking a corner. He has the team going with Donte Moncrief with the 2nd round selection. The Chargers have some question marks at the position with Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown as the only options to start opposite of Keenan Allen. Floyd’s status is still up in the air. He plans on attending training camp, but that doesn’t mean that he is going to clear himself for the season. He is going to test things out.
Moncrief would give the Chargers a deep threat on offense and would challenge for the starting gig. He would be a nice weapon to add to the offense and could help get the Chargers offense to that elite level.
Here is the breakdown of the Moncrief from Kiper:
With the measurables of a player typically drafted much higher, Moncrief is one of the best size/speed equations in the draft, but he was inconsistent in 2013 and lands here. San Diego isn’t set at WR just because Keenan Allen had a good year. The Chargers are thin behind him.
