Good morning, Chargers fans!
Yesterday was another fantastic first round as the Chargers selected offensive guard Zion Johnson out of Boston College. He was the number one player on the team’s board at the time of their selection and I truly think this is a pick that will grow on the entire fan base the more time that passes.
Rounds two and three are tonight with the Chargers holding just one selection (#79) in the third. Here’s to hoping there are still some talented players on the board when they finally get back on the clock.
As always, feel free to discuss anything and all things NFL draft in the comments below.
And now for today’s links.
