Focusing on the Los Angeles Chargers is generally what we do here, but to get a better idea of how this might pan out, let’s give the first six picks a shot.

It’s easy to see prospects you like and pick and choose them specifically for your team, but players get taken early, there are some wildcards, and those players aren’t always available. To have some fun as draft night grows closer, let’s run a mock and try to adjust accordingly with the Los Angeles Chargers‘ pick.

Note, I’m going to attempt to not be boring here and just do as every other mock draft has done, so let’s see if I can surprise a couple people.

1st Pick, Cincinnati Bengals select: LSU QB Joe Burrow

This is the easiest bet in the draft, but you never know. Maybe the Bengals throw everyone off by taking Chase Young, or Tua Tagovailoa. Who knows?

If I had to bet, the safe one here is Joe Burrow. Burrow might not be my highest ranked quarterback, but he is the safest quarterback in the draft. Bengals fans are getting a guy with a quick processor and release, along with the playmaking ability that gets fans excited.

Burrow had perhaps the greatest college season of all time by a quarterback, throwing for 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns to only six interceptions. Unreal numbers, but don’t set the bar too high for Burrow, as his new roster in Cincinnati is nowhere near that LSU offense.
