I signed up to run the Chargers in a GM mock draft and I have a couple of questions for you guys:

What do see as your offseason needs?

Do you have all seven picks?

Which current players shouldn't be on the team next year?

Thanks for your help.

Offensive line.

Center is the only position that doesn't need an upgrade.

Thanks. Seems like you need a cb as well. Do you expect to have Jammer back?

It's hard to say who's going to be back, or not. Should have a new GM, and HC, so everything is going to change.

Needs as i see them at this point...in a general idea of priority...

CB, OG, RT, Pass rusher (wouldnt draft a pass rusher unless hes a #1 guy), ILB (thumper), WR, OL again and some more OL. Backups like a RB or WR is probably more a FA type pickup.

Sounds like we need new starters to replace Jammer Green and Clary.

No trades yet involving 2013 picks?

Yes, exactly, Vasquez is workable, but can be upgraded. C and LT are good, as long as Gaither's healthy. I would suggest a higher pick on a RT who can be a workable LT like Eric Fisher or Taylor Lewan in the 2nd or 1st round respectively.

What's this about losing Green? I like Tyronne Green.

Offensive line (besides LT and C) needs help, yet our GM doesn't usually draft OL high in the draft, CB is almost certainly going to be a 1st or 2nd round pick this year

What about WR/TE? It's time IMO.

We have Green behind Gates who is still going strong. And VB will be back, and DA has been exceptional.

Through two rounds of this mock draft, I have taken Taylor Lewan and Jordan Poyer. I'm thinking I'll target offensive line or safety with the next pick.

RJ for GM.

OLB or OL, not safety. We have a great safety and a young prospect.

If we got Lewan and Poyer in the real draft, I'd be in heaven.

Might consider QB as well, Glennon hasnt been picked yet. If he is available then it might be worth a 3rd to invest in the future incase Rivers continues his recent trend. Would set Glennon up to understudy for 2 years.

There's no reason to do that until Rivers fails with an actual line.

Yeah, I'd say you can go in any number of directions. Taking a safety just for the sake of taking a safety is kind of pointless. Unless you're getting a guy with elite upside, you run with Brandon Taylor for a year to at least see what he can bring to the table. Safety is something of a luxury position (not as much in the modern NFL, but still...) insomuch as we really rarely see any noteworthy ones holding down long-term positions (i.e. drafted and get extensions with the club that drafted them) that aren't taken in the first couple rounds of the draft.

OLB - even if it's an Aldon Smith type who only really projects as a situational pass-rusher as a rookie - is a good option. Guard - or even depending on who is available a center who projects to be able to play guard (and could back up center - push/challenge Molk long-term) - is another one, since 3rd and 4th round is usually the money rounds for guards. Even the right ILB, NT (not as big a fan of taking an NT after the 2nd as you just typically don't find multi-dimensional guys which is what you need/want in a guy if you're grooming him to be a future starter), or RB are also options if the right prospect is there. Putting a RB on this team, in a Ben Tate (or Matt Forte to then-Bear Cedric Benson) sort of way, who could pose a legitimate threat to cutting into Mathews' reps if he doesn't button down and start working to correct his flaws could do a world of difference for this club. That said, that type of RB needs to be a guy who comes in with pro-ready pass-blocking skills otherwise he's no threat whatsoever as his potential to see the field as a rookie is severely limited.

I was thinking safety because you guys were complaining about your safety play in one of your gameday threads. Laughing
