Scenario Two: Trade the No. 48 pick (2nd Rd.) and DL Corey Liuget to the Miami Dolphins for DL Ndamukong Suh
The Miami Dolphins get to dump one of the nastier contracts in the NFL while picking up a decent replacement in Corey Liuget. To make the deal sweeter, the Bolts toss in their second-round pick.
When Ndamukong Suh was on the market a few years ago, there were rumblings that the Chargers were making a strong push for him. Like LeBron James, Suh ended up in Miami.
Not only does this deal plug a major hole for the Chargers, but it instantly makes their defensive line the scariest in the league – Melvin Ingram, Brandon Mebane, Ndamukong Suh and Joey Bosa.
It hasn’t even happened yet and quarterbacks are having nightmares. In all seriousness, the Suh contract would make it difficult to do much in free agency, but the trade would surely boost the Bolts’ defense.
Scenario Three: Trade the No. 48 pick (2nd Rd.), the No. 119 pick (4th Rd.) and a 2019 fourth-round pick to the Green Bay Packers for the No. 114 pick (4th Rd.) and WR Jordy Nelson
Are you confused? Don’t be. With the Green Bay Packers desperate to give Aaron Rodgers the tools necessary to win another Super Bowl ring, they decide to send Nelson to L.A.

In return, Green Bay gets an early round and two mid-round selections to bring a youthful energy to a needy roster.
On the other side of this coin is the Chargers. They get a wide out in his early 30’s and a fourth-round pick. With Tyrell Williams’ future up in the air, Telesco doesn’t hesitate to go get a veteran wide receiver with plenty of gas still in the tank.
Keenan Allen is an elite possession receiver and bringing in Nelson provides a tough task for a defensive coordinator. Not to mention, Hunter Henry, Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin are still ready to catch darts from No. 17.
