With the NFL Combine all wrapped up, let’s check up on who helped or hurt for their draft stock in relation to the Los Angeles Chargers.
The National Football League Scouting Combine is peak draft season. We were also able to glean some clues as to what the Los Angeles Chargers will be looking to add in this upcoming draft after the pressers held by General Manager Tom Telesco and Head Coach Anthony Lynn.
Both raved about the potential of starting Tyrod Taylor at quarterback next year. While that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t draft a quarterback this year, they both pounded the drum that they view him as starter worthy.
Lynn mentioned he’d like more depth at linebacker and Telesco emphasized the quality of this wide receiver class. Both of them mentioned the possibility of moving on from the old veterans up front on the offensive line — Russell Okung has officially been traded as of writing this — and both talked about how excited they are to have James Campen in tow.
While no one knows what the Chargers will do in April at this point, we can read between the lines that they know where the team is weak and they plan on addressing those issues.
That being said, this weekend was all about the prospects. Some players cemented their place as elite talents, others showed they belong in that conversation and then there were players who proved they could provide tremendous value in the later rounds.
It was obvious that players like Mekhi Becton, Isaiah Simmons, Henry Ruggs and Tristan Wirfs put on a show so they will not be mentioned here. Instead, we’ll examine some potential Los Angeles Chargers targets for rounds two through seven.
