2010 First-Round Pick Ryan Mathews
2002–Quentin Jammer, CB (5)
2003–Sammy Davis, CB (30)
2004–Philip Rivers, QB (4)
2005–Shawne Merriman, LB (12); Luis Castillo, DE (28)
2006–Antonio Cromartie, CB (19)
2007–Buster Davis, WR (30)
2008–Antoine Cason, CB (27)
2009–Larry English, DE/LB (16)
2010–Ryan Mathews, RB (12)
2011–Corey Liuget, DT/DE (18)
The Chargers struck gold with Philip Rivers in 2004, and Jammer has been solid for San Diego at corner. Mathews had a pretty good sophomore year after a frustrating rookie season. Cromartie made a trip to the Pro Bowl in 2007 and was also named All-Pro.
Merriman was a beast for three seasons and made the Pro Bowl as well as the All-Pro team from 2005-2007, but he has completely fallen off the map since. English, the man drafted to replace Merriman, has done next to nothing.
Cason and Liuget both struggled last year, and both Buster and Sammy Davis didn't pan out.
