Great insight by Brian Billick and a pretty good breakdown by nfl network.
Fellow SB Nation stie, Mocking The Draft, is holding a LIVE Mock Draft this weekend and still needs a representative from your Chargers to join. Just follow the link for more information... From your rival Broncos fan, ~Rodney.
Look, there is no such thing as a curse or a jinx, so shut up about that. Rally around Philip and vote for him or else it'll be some other schmuck on the cover. And again, shut up about curses.
Brown fits the profile of what the Chargers usually look for in a receiver, and they seemed to show special interest in him throughout the draft process. He’s likely a mid-round prospect.Vincent Brown improves forty time | ProFootballTalk
Besides the Patriots, San Diego holds more chips than any other team in April. Five of the top 89 picks belong to Smith, and the Chargers may be looking to move up with some of them.Connecting the dots for a possible Patriots-Chargers trade
While the NFL tries to solve its labor crisis, the UFL continues to roll out former NFL coaches to join the upstart league. First came Jerry Glanville. Now Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Marty Schottenheimer is "on the verge" of becoming the coach/G.M. of the Virginia franchise. Schottenheimer hasn’t resurfaced in the NFL since being fired after a 14-2 season with the Chargers in 2006. He’s 67 years old, but it sounds like he’s not done with football just yet.Next big name to join UFL: Marty Schottenheimer
Aaron Williams is a big CB from Texas, much like our own Quentin Jammer. He's athletic and fast enough to play CB, but could project as a S. He rates somewhere between being the 3rd best CB in the draft and maybe the 6th best. The Chargers could be interested since there is almost no depth behind Jammer and Cason and A.J. Smith has been known to look towards the future when it comes to CBs. I can't imagine the Chargers using their 1st rounder on him, but I could imagine him slipping to us in the 2nd round and being the best player available. He's not a favorite to be a future Charger, but he's somewhere on the radar.
Justin Houston currently projects as a late 1st round-early 2nd round type of player. BFTB Scouting didn't pick up on him until towards the end of the college football season, but that was only because he was a Junior. He's a 3-4 OLB, who actually played 3-4 OLB in college. Most likely the Chargers would only target Houston if they traded down in the 1st round, traded up in the 2nd or he falls a little farther than most project. Still worth keeping an eye on though.
Sheard is a college DE, that is more likely to be a 3-4 OLB in the pros than a DE. We tracked him in the BFTB Scouting series where we saw him rise from fringy prospect to potential 2nd round pick by accumulating sack after sack. If the Chargers need a pass rusher in the 2nd round, he could be a target. One thing to add to the report is that he did most of this without the help of his teammate Greg Romeus. Romeus was considered the better DE prospect going into the season, but missed most of the year with various injuries. This shows that Sheard was able to take on the responsibilities of being his team's biggest pass rush threat and a willingness to step up when others go down.
