2012 NFL Draft: 5 Picks That Will Complement Awesome San Diego's Offseason

A handful of veteran signings by the San Diego Chargers in free agency didn't send shock waves through the NFL, but certain needs were addressed. Now San Diego must complement those acquisitions with players through the 2012 draft.

Of the mentioned needs San Diego addressed, left tackle and wide receiver were the most notable signings. Tackle Jared Gaither re-signed with the Chargers after filling in for Marcus McNeill during 2011, and receivers Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal were brought in to lessen the blow of losing Vincent Jackson. Other notable signings were fullback Le'Ron McClain and linebacker Jarret Johnson. In typical A.J. Smith fashion, the San Diego general manager managed to make moves that didn't wow fans but definitely upgraded positions and filled big holes.

The next step in preparing for the 2012 season after the recent signings will be deciding on players to be selected in the draft. San Diego's needs have changed slightly on offense but similar issues on defense still remain.

Here are five picks who will complement the awesome Chargers' offseason.
