Mock Draft Tracker 7.0 - Ricky Henne
With only two weeks to go until the draft, here’s the latest look at who top pundits and experts predict the Bolts to select in the first round of the draft on Apr. 25 in Nashville:
Best and worst-case scenarios for Chargers’ first-round pick - Tyler Gallagher
It would be possible for four higher rated defensive tackles to go off the board and still have both Lawrence and Wilkins available. These four would be Quinnen Williams, Ed Oliver, Rashan Gary, and Jeffrey Simmons (yes, I know he tore his ACL and has misconduct issues, but his talent puts him in the top three rated players in the draft by NFL.com).
Former Chargers players who have yet to find a new team - Travis Wakeman
Let’s get into that discussion with a look at four former players still looking for work. In addition to the players on this list, punter Donnie Jones is out there as is legendary tight end Antonio Gates, who will almost certainly only be in a Chargers uniform if he ever steps on a football field again.
Latest On Josh Rosen Market - Sam Robinson
The Patriots were not high on Rosen last year, Breer notes, but that was partially because of what it would have cost them to move up in the first round to acquire him. After a rough year for Rosen, Patriots interest may still not be there, per King. Philip Rivers continues to indicate he has no near-future retirement plans, and the Bolts gave Tyrod Taylor $6MM on a two-year deal. This would not point to a Rosen-to-Los Angeles scenario coming to fruition.
What we can learn from target percentage for fantasy: AFC - Daniel Kelley
Austin Ekeler might never be a No. 1, bell-cow back, but he’s carved out a perfect role as Melvin Gordon’s backup. As noted in my piece on next year’s free agency, Ekeler has a career 3.1 yards per carry in games he’s played 35-plus offensive snaps, 6.1 in games he’s played fewer. He’s destined to forever be an upside flex play, but a good one.
