Los Angeles Chargers third-round Selection: Isaiah Wilson, offensive tackle, Georgia

What? You didn’t think I had a plan? As in, pair Fromm up with his right tackle? This would be a genius move by the Chargers, to take a quarterback they believe in, and then pair your quarterback up with an offensive tackle he believes in.

It’s similar to the move they made by drafting Derek Watt for Melvin Gordon after a struggling rookie year.

Drafting Isaiah Wilson not only gives you a great tackle, but it also gives Fromm the comfort he needs in the pocket to help his transition to the NFL. That comfort would help keep turnovers in check, keep Fromm’s head a little more clear, and allow him to sit in the pocket and relax at times on shorter route combinations.

As I said, Wilson not only helps Fromm, he helps the team as a whole by plugging up a spot that the Chargers are desperately needing help at. That right tackle spot has been in trouble for years now, and it would bring fans and players alike some peace knowing they don’t have to watch the right side of the line collapse like the wall at Helm’s Deep every time they face a somewhat competent opponent.

So, now we have a playmaker on defense, a quarterback of the future, and a solid right tackle. What’s next?
