I know that some of you are all going to say that we won’t know until they get on the field, but I want to know right now! I am impatient and I want to know what you all think of the selections that we have made this year?
The San Diego Chargers have added Jason Verrett, Jeremiah Attaochu and Chris Watt with their first 3 selections and have traded away their 4th round choice. What do you think of the moves that we have made so far?
Verrett and Attaochu make sense. We needed help in pass defense and we found a corner and a pass rusher to make some things happen. It wasn’t Kyle Van Noy, but Van Noy didn’t even slide close to us.
That 3rd round draft choice is where things got a little confusing. Chris Watt might turn out to be a good player, but it seemed like there were other good options on the board. Last time I thought that of an offensive line selection was D.J. Fluker, so I hope that I am completely off base.
There seemed to be better offensive linemen available and there was the option of Donte Moncrief to add at wide receiver. He could have been a nice selection for the roster, but he will be playing somewhere else.
I am going to grade this draft a C right now. In Telesco I trust? Still have that on hold.
