In my last two mock drafts I kind of noticed that they are ..... really bad. So I actually took some time on evaluating these picks and which picks the Chargers need the most.
With the first round pick the Chargers really need to establish some sort of stability on the line. With out a good offensive line Rivers will not be able to get back to his previous "elite" status. I've been looking around and Eric Fisher, the LT out of Central Michigan, has really turned some heads in the Senior Bowl so far and has challenged other prospects for the title of best offensive tackle. It took me a while to get comfortable with this pick but it is an excellent choice and Fisher has the potential to be a premier pass protector. So honestly, I think Chargers could score big with him.
Round 1 Pick: Eric Fisher, LT, Central Michigan
With the second round choice Chargers could land a DB which can potentially become a starter for the team. I almost wanted to go with a safety like an Eric Reid or Kenny Vacarro but Chargers have bigger needs and those two might not even end up on the board. With Xavier Rhodes likely selected earlier, one of the next best prospects is Jordan Poyer. He has the talent to be a great CB and will probably rise up the draft boards.
Round 2 Pick: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
With the third round pick Chargers still have some options. But how about take a chance with Tyrann Mathieu ..... or not. I honestly hope he is still there in the fourth round and the Chargers will be able to swoop him up but the Chargers need a middle linebacker to succeed Takeo Spikes. Nico Johnson comes from an Alabama defense which is NFL ready
Round 3 Pick: Nico Johnson, ILB, Alabama
