The 2017 NFL draft is just over one month away. Los Angeles Chargers‘ general manager Tom Telesco was able to put together one of the better drafts that anyone had last year, and he is sure to be setting up his board for this year.
Though the Chargers have posted a 9-23 record over the course of the last two seasons, it can be argued that they have one of the league’s more complete rosters when they are at full strength. As a result, the list of needs for this team isn’t long, meaning the team will have plenty of flexibility with each of its picks.
Telesco should be searching for depth and building toward the future in this draft, a future that will now commence in a new city.
That said, which positions are the most important for this team come draft time? I have put together of a list of the top five positions that need to be considered, ranked in order of importance.
