This year’s draft class includes several quarterbacks with the potential to succeed in the NFL, including Kyler Murray, Drew Lock, Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins. It’s unlikely that Haskins will fall beyond the seventh overall pick (Jacksonville). Telesco and his staff must prepare for an unexpected player falling to pick number 28.

NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper gave his thoughts on the quarterback prospects ahead of the combine.
“I’ve seen enough of these guys on tape to know what they can do on the field. Now I want to see how they interact with one another. Who takes charge and seizes drills? Who’s the leader of the group? I don’t see my rankings changing much — my top five is Dwayne Haskins, Kyler Murray, Drew Lock, Daniel Jones and Will Grier — unless something shows up in the medical evaluations, or one of them bombs the interview sessions with teams. For quarterbacks, the combine is much more about what they do off the field and how they carry themselves”, via ESPN.
Telesco is in the spotlight once more, he delivered with a fine first-round draft pick in 2018. Chargers fans have to put their trust in the principle executive, responsible for the Chargers’ roster restructure.
