Lamar Jackson seems to have been heavily linked with the Chargers but unsure if he will fall to Number 17.
You keep getting linked to Boise LB Leighton Vander Esch at 17, but I wonder if Florida DT Taven Bryan could be on your radar too. Bosa, Ingram and Bryan would give QB's nightmares and probably create even more turnovers for the likes of Hayward and King.

You've bolstered your O line, you've got youth at TE, at WR, and RB. On offence it feels like the only direction you'd go in the 1st rd would be QB.....if one of them dropped far enough, which is doubtful like you said (with Jackson).

I've gone for the Chargers to take Alabama ILB Rashaan Evans, think he'd give the run Defense a big upgrade. Da'Ron Payne or Maurice Hurst would be possibilities if they go DT...

Yeh Rashaan Evans has definitely been getting heavily linked to the Chargers.

I don’t think I ever predicted correctly what Telesco was going to with his first pick. Mike Williams last year I was not expecting.

He has been picking up some excellent middle round picks over the years Feeney and Des King last year. So hoping for some similar success.

Feeling Telesco now may look to draft up if a QB they like is getting up towards the 49ers at the 9th pick.

Personally a DT or ILB or Safety would be my choice for the right player. But unsure of what QBs are coming up in the next few years. Realistically Rivers maybe has another 2-3 years in him so would be good to have someone learning behind him not named Cardale Jones or Geno Smith!!

Definitely excited to see how things play out and always plenty of shocks seem to happen each year.
