NFL Draft Expert Mike Mayock believes that the San Diego Chargers are praying that a corner falls to them in the first round of the NFL Draft. Mayock believes that 5 corners could be taken in the first round and the team is hoping that one of them will still be available at pick 25:

“I think they have to get a corner,” Mayock said. “I think there are five corners going in the first round, and I think they’re praying that one of them gets to 25. This guy, (Jason) Verrett from TCU, I think he’s special. The problem is he’s only 5-9. That’s literally the only knock on this kid, that he’s 5-9. He competes, he’s tough, but he loses the jump ball to bigger receivers. (UT San Diego)

It is a pretty good assumption. Those corners have to be high on the Chargers priority list in the first round. I just wonder what the team will do if they all are gone by pick 25. What player would they look at next? Who would be the next player on the board be?
