Whoever they take at #7 should be a very good player. A first year starter. I rule out RB's in the first because we have our starter. The only exception to the idea that the guy must be a first year starter would be a QB and I really doubt they'll take a QB.

So, I expect a very good player will be taken at #7 - you can also bet that some very good players will still be on the board after we make our pick because there are quite a few fine prospects in this draft. That fact will mean that many of us will be unhappy because TT didn't pick the guy we liked the most.

I know many of you will be upset if they take a OT because "he isn't rated that high". I think that's silly thinking - the only rating that counts is our GM's rating - maybe the so called "experts" rate a guy lower, even much lower than our team rates them - who's to say that our team is wrong?

Just as it takes a couple of years to judge a draft, it also takes a couple of years to find out if the "ratings" were right. We have to trust our GM to make the best call and trust that he knows more than the guys that do the mock drafts. In fact - what other choice do have? We can't force TT to stick to someone else's top 100 list and even if we could, history proves there would be many mistakes on that list.

I want to trust our GM, but I refuse the notion that I HAVE to trust him... Do you know the Chargers total win loss record since he's been GM?!

McCaffrey at pick #7? Interesting! How about trade down to let's say pick 10 or 11 then draft him?

I am considering McCaffrey at 7.
Along with several other players that you don't like.
Start him at Slot receiver-on the field with KA and MG III.
He's also RB #2 COP.
Lynn wants balance.
He wants a potent 1-2 punch.

TT's record on successful o-line picks is enough for me to not trust him when choosing o-line...... TT needs to stay away from any OL players with pick 7.
