Round 2 – 57th overall, Phillip Gaines, CB, Rice
The Chargers won’t be able to sit long without taking a corner in the draft. Gaines will be able to compete for the starting job with Richard Marshall. He has good speed, but his help in the running game will be a concern.
The team is desperate for help in the secondary. Gaines could come in and give the team some depth at the position immediately.
