Chargers Earn an Average Grade on the Weekend Draft

Jason Cole of Yahoo has given the Chargers a “C” for the weekend draft selections.  Here is his breakdown of their weekend. 

Picks: CB Antoine Cason, FB Jacob Hester, RB Marcus Thomas, CB DeJuan Tribble and OT Corey Clark
Positives: Cason
Negatives: Hester
Bottom line: C. This is a much more clever draft than this grade indicates. Instead of grabbing a lot of players who won’t make the roster, the Chargers wisely took only five players. This is a dynamic that many teams don’t understand when they’re building a roster. Sometimes, having a lot of picks is a waste of time. Cason fills the job of departed CB Drayton Florence. Hester is a bit of a reach, but he is a quality player and a better running back than most people think. He fits well as a replacement for Michael Turner and will be great on special teams.

    Matt,
    Good day. Also would like to mention what also had a roll with this draft and that’s Chambers, Weddle and Oliver. That ended up being a huge factor for an immediate impact last year and an upgrade to the team. Oliver though wasn’t as visible as Chambers and Weddle, but may be a factor this year as the Chargers DBs are starting to shine more and more each year. Nice change there.
