San Diego Chargers GM Tom Telesco had some interesting things to say during his annual draft address—possibly giving some insight as to what his team could do with the 25th pick on May 8.
As Telesco put it, there has to be flexibility:
The farther back you pick, you have to be ready to obviously pick, trade up or trade down. Last year when you pick at 11, you’re going to get a blue player. You may not know exactly who, but you feel you’re going to get a blue difference maker. When you pick at 25, there may not be one there. You may want to get out, so you have to be flexible.
Assuming the Chargers intend to pick at 25, there will be a handful of players the team targets in Round 1. Here are five players San Diego should have on its short list in the first round.
