I don't think there's a OT worth of the 7th pick and I see no need for a WR that high.
We have one great WR and three good ones.
I wouldn't pick one before round 4

Keenan has the potential to be great but let's face it he's missed more games than starts. Chargers need to draft someone with #1 potential in case he gets injured again. Someone with good size and speed. Any players in Julio Jones mold out there?

Of what little clips I've seen of Adams and Hooker, Hooker ball skills are off the charts. He uses his uncanny basketball timing and leaping ability to grab the ball at it's highest point. Both are excellent athletes to replace an aging Dwight Lowery who was almost always a step or two behind making plays against run or pass.

If Zay Jones is still there when our 3rd pick comes around I'm running up to the podium to snag him.

Keenan Allen played in 15 games in 2013, 14 in 2014, 8 in 2015, and 1 in 2016 for a total of 38 games. He missed 26 games in total, so yeah that is false. He had a crazy injury in 2015 with the lacerated kidney, and then an unfortunate ACL injury. I would not be surprised to see him play for 14+ games this year.

But anyhow going back to Adams vs Hooker, sign me up for Adams.

In my perfect world Mike Williams & one of the safeties (preferably Jamal Adams) are already off the board so Hooker (or Adams) will be a no-brainer pick.

I'm sure if you groveled to one of the mods they'd hook you up. As long as you're OK with Bacon being a voting option.

Honestly, I believe Lynn, Telesco & Bradley are going to have a very good working relationship with a lot of communication. I think Bradley has been a coach long enough to be able to watch game film and see what he is looking for. If a safety is taken with the Chargers first pick then I guarantee you it will be the one Bradley thinks will fit his system best. I'll let the professionals decide if it's Hooker or Adams.

Agree 100%. Ingram was labeled injury prone after missing 19 games over 2 seasons. Hasn't missed a game since. Just like Allen, none of his injuries were related.
