San Diego Chargers 2012 NFL Draft Preview


Preview provided by Ernie Padaon. Head to Bolt Beat for more on the San Diego Chargers.

What are the team needs for the Chargers heading into the draft?

SS, OLB, O-Line depth, Defensive line depth

Who are some prospects you’d like to see end up with the Chargers?

Mark Barron, Harrison Smith, Nick Perry, Dont’a Hightower, Courtney Upshaw, Chandler Jones

What would represent a successful draft in your opinion?

Getting players that we actually know of and that can cause an impact. As Bolts fans, we get stoked for the draft and then when it comes to our turn to select, we all hold our breath and hope that AJ selects a certain player. Then he usually goes in a different direction and we all curse the new player that we just selected, because we are all obviously smarter than AJ.

Give us a bold prediction for your team

The Chargers will make at least one trade in the first round. Either they will try and trade up in the draft to try and select Mark Barron or David DeCastro OR they get a pass rusher and then trade back to the end of the first round and try to select Harrison Smith. The trade will be with the New England Patriots.
