I don’t even know why we listen to Mel Kiper anymore, but he is one of those guys that is getting paid to these predictions and is employed by the network, so we have to hear his babble. This time around he is saying that he would be “shocked” if Indiana WR Cody Latimer doesn’t go in the first round.
The Chargers have shown interest in the wide receiver, but taking him in the first seems way early for the Chargers to take a receiver in a draft that is full of talent at the position. Kiper mentioned the Chargers as a possible landing spot for Latimer in the first round.
I like Latimer and believe that he would be a good wide receiver on our roster, but I think we would be reaching if we took him in the 1st round. Latimer is a player that can help our offense, but there are so many other options in that first round. There are so many other options at the wide receiver position in that first round as well.
Tom Telesco shocked us last year with his selection and could look to do it again.
