I did a mock draft today trying to make every pick within the first 3 BPA and came out with this
13 Justin Herbert, QB
34 Neville Gallimore, IDL
44 Ross Blacklock, IDL
75 Cole Kmet, TE
112 Gabriel Davis, WR
142 Tyler Johnson, WR
173 Yasir Durant, IOL
190 Levonta Taylor, CB
204 Binjimen Victor, WR
alot of needed help right now, what do you think
There is also FA. Chargers have a lot of talent with a lot of veterans. They could decide to go after a Bridgewater if he becomes available or a more experienced QB. Lots of things can happen before the draft
I agree with your obersvation. There is some of that going on I think.
I said that I want a high floor guy. If Fromm checks out from a height, hand size, and arm talent standpoint, I'd rather go with him than a high ceiling prospect.
JB showed that short game accuracy can win games if you have a defense and ST. Sure, teams can jump the short routes, but if you burn them...score on the 30 yard pass when its available...then they will stay honest. Fromm can hit those passes while JB has shown that he cannot. That's the difference right there. I assume Gordon can too, but I'll wager that his arm is weaker than Fromm's.
This is where I'm at as well. He was an animal with a good 1T next to him in Al Woods. Getting a really good 1T would shore up the run defense and bolster our existing 3T's ability to generate a consistent pass rush.
