The NFL Draft: Which Team Has It Best? - Bill Barnwell
Enough preamble. Who has the most and least to work with next week? Let’s start with the league’s barest cupboards and go from there. Keep in mind that the average NFL team has 44.8 points of expected Approximate Value to work with from its picks.

Wide receiver a Chargers question mark - Michael Gehlken (paywall)
Seven of the 30 players scheduled to attend the NFL Draft play the position. Along with Latimer, Clemson's Sammy Watkins, Texas A&M's Mike Evans, LSU's Odell Beckham Jr., Oregon State's Brandin Cooks, USC's Marqise Lee and Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews will be at Radio City Music Hall.

Keenan Allen, Kiko Alonso among best picks of 2013 NFL Draft - Brian Billick
A knee injury pushed Keenan Allen all the way back into the third round. He was the 76th overall pick, with seven receivers coming off the board before him. Of those top eight receivers selected, Allen was the only one to reach the 1,000-yard threshold. He was also the only one to lead his team in receiving yards. Of the eight teams these eight receivers represent, the Chargers were one of just two that qualified for the postseason (Aaron Dobson's New England Patriots also made it). And finally, Allen will be the only receiver selected in last year's draft who enters 2014 as a legit No. 1.
