With their sixth-round selection, the Chargers and Tom Telesco finally reformed back to previous draft ways by selecting a punter (smh).
Not a good pick. Not a good pick at all. Not only can you still get a quality punter undrafted, there were still good players available at a position of need such as Jeremy Cash or Jalen Mills. I guess all we can hope for is that one of these players still slide far enough down for us to grab at the end of the draft.
On a positive note, this selection does seem to signal the end of the Mike Scifres era. Not saying that I hate Scifres as a player, it just means that his $3.5 million comes off the books. In the end, I will take five out of six hits on draft picks up to this point.
“Very nice draft by the Chargers” were not the words I was thinking I would say coming into this draft, but they are the words I am saying right now. For once in their lives, the Chargers’ front office seems to have gotten a lot of things right this offseason. Better late that never I suppose.
