i'm also not saying we have to draft a back #7, i said in the first 3 rounds and i absolutely think there will be one drafted in the first 3 rounds.

if the chargers wait until the later rounds to take a running back it will be a mistake, that is what i am saying.

This team was 4-12, there are 'needs' in plenty of places.....RB is a 'want' not a 'need'.....

i think a corner could be drafted high as well but i don't think the need is as much as RB. there are injury concerns everywhere on this team but if a corner goes down the chargers defense can still survive.

right now if gordon were to go down it would cripple the chargers offense and make them one dimensional like it did last season because there is now nobody behind him.

that's why you need to address the RB position in the first two days of the draft without a doubt IMO

Actually there are two other RB's on the roster, as well as a FB.....I get that you do not like their talent as a replacement for MG, but stop claiming there is 'nobody behind MG'.

Not being able to run the ball is a problem, certainly, but giving up TD's because your CB's are weak is a bigger problem. CB is looking like a 'need' as opposed to RB.

due a lot to the injuries at RB........

no, i'm afraid that the RB position is a big time need. the chargers need more than just gordon....they need more than just OL help too.

the fact that the chargers let both oliver and woodhead walk while not sighing any RB's in FA so far tells me they are planning to draft one and i highly doubt they will gamble by waiting until the later rounds like so many seem to think.

those guys wouldn't make the final 53 on most teams, so yeah your assumptions are correct, i don't like their talent as a replacement.

also, not saying corner isn't a need, not sure where the hell that came from. all i'm saying is there will likely be a RB drafted in the first 3 rounds and that RB is certainly a high priority in terms of need on this team.

The value at running back is Cook or Fournette at 7, excellent choices,
or a mid rounder.

There is depth.

Which mid rounders have hands for slot work ?

The bold above references my differentiating between your belief that RB is a 'need' as well as CB. I do not see it that way, as I believe RB is a 'want' as opposed to the agreed 'need' at CB.

I do not see the Bolts taking a RB before their 5th pick of this draft, if at all. Time will tell though....

I just do not see any emphasis on a receiving RB, otherwise the Bolts would have retained either Woodhead or Oliver, or at the least made an effort to retain.

On the occasion that they throw to a RB, the players on roster will suffice. If they add to the RB group, which I believe they will, that player will be more of a pounder than scat back. Or so I see it....

Dalvin Cook. Christian McCaffrey. Curtis Samuel.

They would all look good with Lightning Bolts on their shoulders.

Energy at StubHub.

Mismatches for the win.

Looking 'good with Lightning Bolts on their shoulders' is not a prerequisite for being drafted by TT.....thankfully.


Cook and McCaffrey will go after we pick @ 7th overall, and Samuel will go after we pick in the 2nd....these players just do not line up well with the Bolts' draft slots. TT should know better than to bite into that apple of temptation, but we shall see soon enough.
