With the 2018 NFL draft a month away, let’s take a second to reflect on Los Angeles Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco’s draft history, and how each round stacks up against one another.

Draft history is important, as there is so much to learn: a general manager’s tendencies, how they’ve grown, and what rounds they tend to target certain needs or positions. In this case, I looked back to see how Telesco has fared in each round and how the players taken in each match up. I ranked them following this criteria:

  1. Value is important (finding a talented player in a later round boosts value, for example)
  2. Draft placement does not indicate a “better” player
  3. Future impact can raise a players’/round’s rank

Let me know what you think in the comments section below!

Here is each round of Telesco’s five-year draft career, ranked worst to best.
