If we were to instead take a huge LT in the first followed by another in the 2nd, I'd be fine with that. I'd be quite happy with a huge DL in the 2nd or a safety. OT has to happen soon.

Also it's time to look at QB....PR isn't moving well....isn't getting any younger. Not saying next draft, but we should keep a look out. Please fix the OL first or don't bother

Any qb's in mind that you can think of for next year's draft? None exactly come to the top of my head.

I'm intrigued by Baker Mayfield. Height could push him down and he could prove to be a good developmental QB behind Rivers.

If the investment was a 5th or 6th round pick, and the evaluation was a very high ceiling possible, then I could see it.

Otherwise I have a difficult time investing a 2nd or 3rd on a 'developmental' qb....seems like a poor use of the pick.

High pick equals replacement QB....

Late rd pick equals a WAS......

When I say developmental, I mean develop into a replacement.

He is only a sophomore and is going to be real special if he keeps working hard at his craft.

I love me some Samaje Perine.

This timing sounds much more like the perfect timing for a Rivers replacement than a QB from next year. 'Real Special' only makes it better.....

If Rosen remains on his current trajectory, the Chargers will have to be absolutely horrible to get him. Like, picking #1 overall horrible. Either that, or they'd have to trade the farm to get up that high. Starting this next offseason, I think the Chargers would be wise to start investing picks and dollars into developmental QB's that are good enough to have a real shot at turning into something. If they do that every offseason for 2-3 years while they still have Rivers, then they'll give themselves a shot at finding a good successor without mortgaging the franchise to do so.

There is no sure approach to replacing your franchise QB.....and to think there were those advocating the trading of Rivers. Replacing Rivers will have a cost associated with the endeavor, it will be interesting to see what that cost ends up being.
