We decided to go with an SS prospect in Jenkins rather than a developmental QB like Dobbs. Was this a good idea given the fact that we already had Addae (and paid him handsomely as well) on the roster? Playing devil's advocate since I was more worried about getting Rivers help, than finding his replacement.

What good is a fourth round development QB? He won't be a franchise giy and backups are easy to find. I was hoping they would let Clemens walk and they sign somebody else. Getting Jenkins means Stuckey may very well be out and Addae's contract is an easy out after 2019.

Addae gets hurt often and I'm okay with picking a guy with more upside that can replace Addae as well. I seriously don't get our FO infatuation with him so I'm all for getting him outta the starting spot asap.

I get the want to go get a developmental QB, but what would they do? Sit behind rivers for another 2-3 years? Think it's a year too early if anything to draft one. And how often do teams usually bring up a later round guy and stick to them more than one year before drafting one early in the 1st or 2nd?

I only say draft one next year because not only does there seem to be a fair amount of talent coming out, but a few "QB needy" teams made their move this year. With the amount of talent coming out next year, the price tag to make a move may be lower, or we may not need to move up at all to grab one.

how about drafting a developmental OL like Tevi instead of a developemental QB like Chad Kelley (NFL arm and tools)?

4. Joe Mixon RB (talented back who'll drop for off field altercation 2 years ago).

Chad Kelly is a punk. Screw that guy. He has a name and that's it.

I am guessing there are a couple of guys Chargers would have picked in the 2nd (like MAYBE Mahomes), but were gone well before that anyway.

Then guys like Dobbs, it really just depends on how the Chargers graded him. Maybe they think he projects to a backup at best, in which case he may not even be on their board (or very late.)

Chiefs went way up to get Mahomes at 10, I like him but in watching complete game highlights...he needs a lot of work. His footwork looks really bad, I feel like he shouldn't even be the Chiefs' #2 QB this season. You better really love him to spend 2 #1's and a 3rd to get him, because with him you're projecting an awful lot to get him where he needs to be.
