San Diego Chargers
Best pick: Offensive tackle Marcus McNeill, Auburn. McNeill fell to the second round because of concerns regarding his back (spinal stenosis), but he was a steal for the Chargers at that point. McNeill has played through the injury for years now and has the size, technique and experience to immediately push Shane Olivea for the starting right tackle job.
Worst pick: Quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, Clemson. Whitehurst was a fine value in the third round and will ultimately develop into a good backup behind starter Philip Rivers. However, the Chargers could have put this pick to better use by selecting a wide receiver such as Arizona State's Derek Hagan.
Work to do: As mentioned, wide receiver is the one position the Chargers failed to upgrade in this year's draft. Keenan McCardell is a very good starter, but he is aging, and neither Eric Parker nor Rashaun Woods can be considered a solid No. 2 starter at the position. If the Chargers believed wide receiver was not a position of need heading into the 2006 draft, they vastly overrated their existing personnel.

Morons.....

We need a 3rd QB and it is stupidity to have John Ramsdell twidling his thumbs with Rivers and Feeley only. Let him coach up the rookie and if for anything - trade bait.

I guess what I meant to say is we need 3 QB's going into the season. The
4th QB is camp fodder.
I dont know, last year we had three, one was traded midway. The year before we had two on the active roster? I am fine with the whitehurst pick, but I dont like feely.

Its all good. Nothing here is permanent. The internet doesnt leave marks.

There are only two thinks that are personal:
1) Bashin on my clan. My family is the most important thing to me.
2) Calling me a Raiders fan. Never forgive, never forget.
