Re-Grading San Diego Chargers' Past 5 Drafts
Jason DeCrow

The San Diego Chargers have come a long way in the draft since the Ryan Leaf debacle of 1998.

Some of the better years have produced names like LaDainian Tomlinson, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers (via trade), Shaun Phillips, Vincent Jackson and Eric Weddle to name a few. But fans of the Bolts remember the bad years just as well with picks like Quentin Jammer, Sammy Davis, Craig Davis and Antoine Cason.

In the past five years, the Chargers have drafted 35 players under two different regimes. A.J. Smith and Norv Turner handled 2009-12, but a lack of consistency in the draft and poor results on the field forced their exit after the 2012 season. Tom Telesco and Mike McCoy make up San Diego's newest regime, which is off to a good start following a postseason run in 2013.

The last five drafts have been graded based on how each player fared in a Chargers uniform and he lived up to expectations in his respective draft slot.
