I also wanna say I think the Browns like Malik Hooker a lot. If he's there when we pick, I could see a trade back to 12 with them. I actually think Hooker and Adams are who the Browns are targeting with their "trade up" rumors, not Trubisky as previously thought.

Kyle Posey says he has a friend plugged into the Chargers draft, He claims their top target is Soloman Thomas, if Thomas is gone They really like Mike Williams (he states they have fallen in love with Williams as of late) for their second choice, if they were to take a QB it would be Watson and only Watson (who is the only QB they see worthy of first round pick)

If they were to trade back they would take Forrest Lamp and follow their 2nd pick with Dan Feeney (who is supposedly their 2nd round choice) they will also use their 2nd-2nd round pick on either a WR or Safety

Also interesting he notes the team has Malik Hooker as their 5th choice if all other choices have been taken or far out of reach, they also have Peppers ahead or Adams on their board, in fact he claims Adams isn't even an option in the first.


1st round targets:
Thomas
Williams
Watson
Lamp (trade back)
Hooker

2nd round options:
Feeney
WR
FS

I want Thomas (and with him a dominant front DLine)

I'm not a scheme expert and players move around, et. but

DLine : Bosa, Thomas (pick), Liuget, Ingram (Mabene would rotate in/start)
LB: Brown, Perrima, Emanuel
CB: Verret, Hayward
S: Addae, Jones (pick)

wouldn't be too bad

Just a question. Of we take thomas why wouldn't we put him at de and trade Melvin Ingram. Actually thinking about it if we draft Thomas could the chargers do a draft day trade for Ingram if it meant they could get Mike Williams or hooker??

Can't remember how it works, I thought it was if they signed their tender they couldn't trade but then I hear Malcolm Butler can be traded even though he is signed, either way, if we took Thomas, they could use him purely at DE on rushing plays and DT on others mixing him and Melvin around, on passing plays you're going to want you 2 most athletic players at DE to get after the QB, also having 3 legit pass rushers on the field all over will be greatly needed

They have to sign the tender before they can be traded. Once they sign then the team can trade them. Basically the team can't trade them until they sign because they're not under contract.

Nope. We as charger fans live with ptdd " post traumatic draft disorder" to many flashback to way to many busts

I think Ingram stays and Liuget is in more danger of leaving, but anyways, like I say, move them around all you want, that's still a very good front 7

I was just picking the tires On the idea. Of the chargers are that much in love with Williams I think they could pull the trigger. But I'll be happy either way. Just fun to think about

Conley set to give DNA sample on Monday, and talk to police, shame. Possible a team takes him but because his name isn't cleared yet, could fall out of draft

I'm hoping they draft a WR but in round 3 or 4, hopefully Allen comes back and stays healthy, Benjamin works out and Williams becomes a star (or at least Malcolm Floyd 2.0), and I want Ingram to stay too.

Mike Williams would be such a Chargers pick. The value is on the defensive side of the ball..

There are so many good players in play for #7 that it is just easier for me to say who I would be disappointed in taking. It would be these guys, not because they aren't talented, just because I see them as less value than the rest.

Williams (or any WR)
Mahomes
Trubisky
Watson (or any QB)
Any offensive lineman
Fournette

Pretty much anyone else we've been linked to I would be ok with.

I won't be mad if we take Williams, I'll just be mad if we take him ahead of some other guys if they're still on the board (Hooker, Thomas specifically). I actually like him in a trade down scenario, I just don't think he's the 7th best player in this draft especially when it looks like a QB or two plus Fournette and maybe McCaffrey might come off before us.

I also find it funny that all of these rumors and absolutely nothing about Jonathan Allen. He might be in for a big fall
