Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: What Should Chargers Do at Safety?

Your daily dose of Chargers news & notes from around the web. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., Todd McShay Name Top Choices for Seventh Overall Pick - Ricky Henne"Well, protecting Philip Rivers is front and center.  So an offensive tackle (has to be in consideration), but it is too early for that. Getting another weapon at wide receiver, Keenan Allen has not obviously been able to stay healthy.  So a wide receiver (is an option but it’s) too early for that. Then you look, do they go safety? Do they go with a Malik Hooker? Is Jamal Adams there at that point? Probably not. My Combine: Philip Rivers...

ESPN Suggests Five Moves the Chargers Should Make This Offseason

ESPN Suggests Five Moves the Chargers Should Make This Offseason

ESPN insider’s Bill Barnwell has some ideas about what Tom Telesco ought to do in the coming months. Coming off a 5-11 season that saw head coach Mike McCoy fired, the Los Angeles Chargers obviously have a lot of holes to fill. Tom Telesco had a great draft and also made a couple high impact free agent signings in 2016, but his roster remains lacking in depth and too reliant on injury prone players. He only has a few years at most left of franchise quarterback level play from Philip Rivers and the Chargers’ new home will not be receptive to a mediocre on-field product. Last week, ESPN...

Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Chargers Lack Organizational Stability

Your daily dose of Chargers news & notes from around the web. The NFL Stability Index - Danny KellyThe Chargers have a new head coach (Anthony Lynn) whose creative run attack will alter the identity of the offense, a new defensive coordinator (Gus Bradley) who is going to change the defense from a 3–4 into a 4–3, and they also have a new city and a new logo. The only reason they aren’t 32nd on this list is that they still have a top-tier quarterback (Philip Rivers) to act as a counterbalance to all that upheaval.

Patrick Mahomes Would Be a Great Pick for Chargers at #7 in NFL Draft

Patrick Mahomes Would Be a Great Pick for Chargers at #7 in NFL Draft

Here's why the Chargers should seriously consider drafting the QB at #7. In my mind, Patrick Mahomes is the best QB prospect in the 2017 NFL Draft. It's not close, either. The Chargers don't need a QB right this minute, but Philip Rivers isn't going to be around forever. I can't see any way that Rivers plays more than 3 more seasons (and it's hopeful to assume that he'll even still be playing at a high level for that long), which means the Chargers ideally need to find his long-term replacement in the next two years. It's true that the Chargers have more pressing needs than a QB heading...
