After a disappointing 2010 season, the Chargers will have to reload the team through the NFL draft for 2011. The Chargers will have one first round pick, two second round picks, two third round picks and one sixth round pick. This is excluding the compensation picks for Brandon Manumaleuna, Jamal Williams and Kassim Osgood from them leaving via free agency.
Last offseason, San Diego made some key moves to obtain additional draft picks. San Diego traded CB Antonio Cromartie to the New York Jets for their second round pick. They traded former third-string QB Charlie Whitehurst to the Seattle Seahawks for their third round pick. The Chargers do not have a seventh round pick, as this pick was traded to Dallas for WR Patrick Crayton.
