    Given we have 9 picks I would consider that really light! Maybe we pick only one in the third but I can't see them passing on any good prospects they like in the latter rounds. Special teams and developmental oline.
    My choice for #13 in this years draft....

    1) Two top CB's Farley or Surtain
    2) Te Te if the two above are not available
    3) Trade down if all three are not available and we have a motivated trade partner and then draft your oline.

    Otherwise I have visions of Fluker in my mind?!?!?!?1

      Aren't we expecting most of our guys to be back? (I.e Tevi , Lamp) We have development OL (Pipkins and Quessenberry, Storm)and as for special team those guys can be found in the udfa pool.

        We have plenty of holes to fill but none more pressing than the O-Line. I've historically been a Best Player Available at a position of need guy. But the trencher in me has had it with the lack of success. So my take is that until the talent is at acceptable levels we should use all resources on the offensive front. So as limiting and unlikely as it would be, I vote all 9 picks go to the o-line, our greatest weakness. It will never, ever, happen, but the odds of success increase with increased numbers.

          I agree! This year there is some depth at OL in the draft, so anything less than three picks will have me scratching my head. The OL has been a consistent problem for quite some time now. This is the year to rebuild it completely with some young talent and supplement it with some solid FA pickups.

            Three picks - yes
            but one on day 1 or in R2
            one on day 2
            and one on day 3

            I don't want Telesco waiting until Day 3 and he uses his 4th 6th and 7th on OL

              This article has the Chargers taking Rashard Slater with the first pick and Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey with second pick saying goodbye to Feeney.

              I'm on board with these two picks.

              "With Dan Feeney set to be a free agent, the Chargers could be looking to upgrade at the center position. Humphrey isn’t the most athletic lineman, but toughness, intelligence, instincts and consistency in pass protection and the run-blocking department are starter quality."

                I'd rather have a tough, smart and steady C than someone like Feeney who gets rag-dolled regularly...

                  This! -- this would be the best way to start the draft: OT and OC. The Chargers need a strong OC as much as a strong LT.

                    My current answer is 2.5 .
                    Round 2, Round 3a and Round 6b, maybe.
                    There are particular players who fit my algorithm.
                    We play modern defensive football.

                      I am at a strong 3
                      1 in either R1 or R2
                      one in R3
                      and like you said 6B pick at worst but open to R5 as well

                      also hit the UDFA market from last year and this year hard! - meaning guys who didn't make rosters last year because of covid that might be options.

                      I don't give a crap if Bulaga is the only starter back. Hell he should be hte only starter back.

                        I would be more than happy if the Chargers went that route. I am back and forth between Slater and Darrisaw really..

                        Although very unlikely I know, but a trade to mortgage future picks perhaps to grab an interior like Wyatt Davis also would be icing on the cake.. by the way, will either Davis or Humphrey be available in the third??
