The Analysts: Jennifer Floyd Engel, Alex Marvez, Peter Schrager
Floyd Engel's Grade: C-
Marvez's Grade: B
Shrager's Grade: B
Analysis: Fox Sports' trio of draft graders were split 2-1 as to what grade San Diego deserved for its draft.
Floyd Engel was the most critical of the two in her analysis, specifically of Te'o:
Forget the fake dead fake girlfriend, I am not sure linebacker Manti Te’o is going to be on the field enough to justify where they took him or moving up to do so.
Marvez, on the other hand, feels strongly of Te'o and Allen as San Diego's better picks:
They could have done more to address their offensive line early besides choosing Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker at No. 11 overall. They may have hit home runs with two players who fell further than expected: Te’o (second round) and California wide receiver Keenan Allen (third).
Shrager was also elated with the Te'o pick to San Diego, but he went further to explain how a fellow Charger will guide Te'o in the NFL:
It’s ironic Te’o will be lining up every day in practice against first-round pick Fluker — the same guy who ate him alive in the BCS Championship Game. San Diego is probably the best fit for Te’o. Safety Eric Weddle, a devout Mormon, will take the linebacker under his wing and serve as his veteran mentor. Keenan Allen was a first-round talent.
