NFL Draft 2012: These Prospects Can Help Fix San Diego Chargers

The San Diego Chargers have turned into a real head-scratcher of a team over the past couple of seasons. This is a good football organization that loses too many bad games. In a division as weak as the AFC West, finishing the 2011 season with an 8-8 record and missing the playoffs for a second year running is just not good enough.

The Bolts know this and with a roster loaded with pro-bowlers; Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Ryan Mathews, Vincent Jackson and Eric Weddle, there is no need to hit the panic button quite yet.

With Nate Kaeding, the NFL's most accurate ever kicker, set to return for the 2012 season, the Chargers only need some minor tinkering to get them firing on all cylinders again.

Coach Norv Turner and General manager A.J Smith will be back (either rightly or wrongly depending on your viewpoint) for another attempt at trying to take the Bolts deep into the play offs. With a few well-chosen draft picks it's possible to see the Chargers even making it all the way to the 2013 Superbowl in New Orleans.

Andrew Luck is obviously the stand out pick in this year's draft but San Diego doesn't need another QB right now. Rivers does need help on both sides of the ball though and here are six picks that will have the Chargers in the Big Easy.
