2017 NFL draft prospects to target for each AFC West team - Kevin Weidl (insider)
It might be time for the Chargers to start planning for life without QB Philip Rivers, who enters his 14th year with the franchise and will turn 36 by the end of the year. This would be an ideal landing spot for Kizer, who has an exceptional physical skill set but needs time to mature and develop as a quarterback. Assuming Rivers plays out all three years remaining on his contract, landing in LA would allow Kizer to sit for an extended period of time and learn from one of the best to play the position over the past decade. The Chargers may also look for offensive line or wide receiver help on Day 2, as both are pressing needs.

If Jonathan Allen somehow falls here, the Cardinals also could target the Alabama standout as a Calais Campbell replacement. The Chargers are another team really looking for offensive line help in a draft that doesn't offer much; they're better off trading for additional depth and maybe using one of the extra picks they get in this deal on a rookie to develop behind Philip Rivers.

Joshua Dobbs said he knows he may be drafted by a team that has shown no interest in him. - Paul Kuharsky
Joshua Dobbs said he knows he may be drafted by a team that has shown no interest in him. But the former Tennessee quarterback said he won't be surprised if he's chosen by the Chargers, Saints or Steelers. "In 14 days, I do not know where I will be living for the next five years of my life, at least," he said at 104.5 The Zone's SportsFest in Nashville.

Could Chargers double down on pass rush with Takkarist McKinley? - Eric Williams
"I'm here to get the quarterback," McKinley told reporters at the NFL scouting combine in February. "The league now is a passing league. They need young guys who can get to the quarterback and I feel I'm the best pass-rusher in this draft class to do that."

"Melvin’s fine," Lynn said. "Right now he kind of doing more things straight ahead, and as we continue on he’ll do more lateral movements. But right now he’s doing good."
