If Tom Telesco chooses to sign a guy like Jake Long, the Chargers would most likely not draft a left tackle at the No. 11 spot. Jake Long will be asking for a very large contract that San Diego will definitely not give him (although they should), so plan on them drafting a tackle in the first round.
King Dunlap was recently signed, but he is not consistent enough to replace Jared Gaither on the left side.
Lane Johnson's draft stock has been rising the past few months. He's considered a top-15 pick at the moment, but many teams in the top 10 like his potential. Luke Joeckel is the consensus No. 1 pick, and Eric Fisher from Central Michigan should be a top five pick as well. If another team believes they need a tackle after both of these players have been selected, Lane Johnson would be the guy.
Arizona at the seventh spot and Buffalo at the eighth spot could draft an offensive lineman. Whether they decide to take a guard or tackle, no one knows. Depending on their selections, the Chargers may have to tweak their draft strategy.
If the Chargers sign tackle Eric Winston, who they have been linked to according to ESPN, expect San Diego to draft Chance Warmack at No. 11.
Alternate Picks: Chance Warmack (OG), Alabama; Alec Ogletree (ILB), Georgia.
