This draft is definitely one of the more crazier drafts in recent years. Analysts are having a hard time pinpointing where the top prospects are going to land, which rarely happens. The Cleveland Browns hold the No. 1 overall pick and will most likely take one of the top quarterbacks, but it’s a guessing game after that.

As for the Chargers, I expect them to target a defensive player. The Chargers need upgrades at defensive tackle, linebacker and free safety. The good thing about this draft is that it’s very deep and full of talent at several positions. Like last year, there’s a good chance in finding impact players not only early, but later in the draft as well.

In the meantime, check out our draft-related articles if you haven’t already, which includes mock drafts, top choices and players to target outside of the first round.

Let’s have a good draft and, like Tim Riggins would say, have some ice cold memories!
