  • 2019 Draft Prospects To Keep An Eye On

    Thought this might be a good idea for the draftniks. Give everyone a potential list for people to check out during the college season.

    Here is an article with 5 prospects. Post what you have throughout the season.
    The 2018 draft was a major success for the Chargers. The first four selections in safety Derwin James, linebackers Uchenna Nwosu, Kyzir White, and defensive tackle Justin Jones have been major contributors early on in the regular season.
    DALTON RISNER (OT) KSU
    JUAN THORNHILL (FS/CB) UVA
    RENELL WREN (DT) ASU
    JUSTIN HOLLINS (LB) ORE
    DAWSON KNOX (TE) UMS
    ALEXANDER MATTISON (RB) BSU
    ATHONY RUSH (DT) UAB

    We usually have a rolling college football thread to discuss players but nobody has started one. Its something Steve used to do but he quit. So we need to pick up his slack.

    Im gonna move this to the main forum for now.

      I wonder if lil bro Bosa will drop much with his injury.....he seemed dominating before the injury. I think we need to go defense again at #1 on the DL. This team needs talent up front.

        I doubt he will be there when the Chargers pick 32nd

          He wont be even if we in the middle. Sure some players fall but i doubt a DE like him would fall like a safety. Ingram fell because, well, he wasnt that great IMO as a pass rusher in college and i said that many times and didnt want us to draft him.

            Does anyone have a sense for what the free agent market is going to look like this offseason?
            if we can find value at a PON there, it’ll give us a better idea of what PON we should focus on in the draft.

            my biggest concern moving forward is OT at the moment unless Lamp becomes the eventual answer at RT, even then, don’t know how much Okung has left in the tank. He also has bigger plans for life after football and could be looking to get that started sooner rather than later
            028. Jerry Tillery DT Notre Dame
            060. Juan Thornhill S Virginia
            091. Joe Jackson DE Miami
            130. Bennie Snell RB Kentucky
            166. Cameron Smith LB USC
            200. Yosh Nijman OT Virginia Tech
            242. Josh Oliver TE San Jose State
            ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

              What is a PON?
              Agree we should be looking at a RT, and a DT, Depth at LB and better alternating DE. Wish they would of kept McCain but don't know what happened there. Maybe time to look at Addaes eventual replacereplacement.

              Still think it's too early to draft a QB high as Rivers is going to play two more seasons after this one, maybe more if they extended him couple years. But geez, they need to find a better backup than Geno.

                PON = position of need

                OT, DT, CB, LB, FS, & probably WR will need to be addressed next off season

                  Position of need.
                  McCain got charged with misdemeanor battery, and got picked up the Colts before landing on IR recently
                  Telesco cut ties sooner rather than later.
                  Addae’s eventual replacement might just be Derwin James if he proves to be more Chancellor than Thomas
                  the QB topic is a big one, personally think we’re wasting a resource (time learning from Rivers) on a guy who isn’t likely to ever be an average starter. It’s plain irresponsible to continue without a legitimate successor.

                    I don't think having a QB that we draft high sitting for three years is smart. Garrapalo never played a regular season game asside from when Brady was suspended and then he was going to be a free agent last year. If we use a first on a QB he should sit one year.

                    Don't care where Derwin plays, it's Addae we need to upgrade. Unless King is moving To safety, we need another and I don't think King is moving. Addae is OK but he isn't a playmaker and misses a lot of tackles and think he is a FA after this season but not sure if it's this year or next. Either way, upgrade needed.

                    Definitely need another decent rotational pass rusher. And RT is a big need imo.

                      I think we cut Benjamin. Scott is the slot waiting in the wings. I expect Tyrell isnt resigned. Be nice if he had a huge year and got paid by another team as it could net us a comp pick later. He might stay but i doubt it. And Mike Williams showed today hes a deep threat. His speed is underrated imo. I think Geramy Davis may be brought back.

                      WR could be a possibility. But mid to late rounds. I love Artavis. I think he will be a possession stud.

                      We need a beast inside on DL. I thought we would be able to get a bunch of pressure even without Bosa but i think some of the struggles are actually on the interior as well. Teams are not scared of our inside guys so Melvin is getting mauled. Even Liuget helps us. But i think JJ ends up at the 2 gap spot and we go after a stud 3tech.

                      OL is another area of need. OT especially. Is Perryman the answer at ILB? I sure wouldn't mind a no doubter type guy like Roquan Smith inside.

                      Pass rusher may be another position. Nwosu is technically a SAM so not necessarily a pure pass rusher. Need a guy to rotate at DE with Bosa and Ingram. Rochelle and Landrum havnt shown out yet.

                      I do want Rivers replacement to be drafted and not bought. Because that allows us to spend elsewhere. Huge QB contracts can limit a teams ability to get better elsewhere. You really want a guy that can come in and kick ass like a Mahomes, Watson, Wentz etc.

                      I just dont think we need to do that next year.

                        Yeah forgot, Benjamin is near worthless. I too like Scott and they need to find a speed guy with better hands than Benjamin. Not sure what they do with Tyrell but with Keenan and Mike W balling, his chances will get slimmer but he is a speed guy and I still do like him.
