Question 7: If they make 1 more addition to the O line in the draft, would you rather see them draft Hernandez and move Feeney to RG and Lamp to RT, or bring in say, McGlinchey at RT? – Bill

If I’m picking between the two, I’m going with McGlinchey at 17. As of right now, many are expecting Dan Feeney to play left guard and Forrest Lamp to play right guard, with Mike Pouncey in the middle. Hernandez is a favorite of mine but doesn’t have a real place on the roster if both 2017 Day 2 picks start.

That being said, I think the Bolts roll out Joe Barksdale for one more year. He doesn’t have an incredibly high cap hit, knows the offense and is relatively healthy year-to-year. Although, you could say the same for Spencer Pulley, who was just replaced by Pouncey.

I am also curious, though, about the status of Lamp’s injury. Some years ago many of us fans, including myself, assumed third-round pick Max Tuerk would just heal up and play center. Never happened. While I would like to assume Lamp just steps in and plays right guard, I’ve been burned before by assumptions!

Question 8: Should the Chargers kick the tires on Adrian Peterson?

If the Chargers wanted to bring in an older back who could effectively spell Melvin Gordon, they would have went out and got Frank Gore. I would be fine with the Chargers bringing in Peterson for a workout, but I don’t expect them to sign him at all. He’s been on the free-agent radar four years in a row and still never latched on. Anthony Lynn is going to grab a guy in the draft, and I wouldn’t be surprised if a guy like Ronald Jones from USC or Rashaad Penny out of San Diego State is picked on Day 2 of the NFL Draft. Penny is a favorite of mine, simply because he can come in and abuse a defense for a 8-10 touches a game.
