While the possibility of a lockout looms, the NFL Draft will happen in April regardless. Here is a breakdown of positions the Chargers will most likely concentrate on.
Last year it was Luis Castillo and Jacques Cesaire starting on the ends. Cesaire is a free agent.
Castillo hasn’t been the difference maker the Chargers hoped for, but in general has been a solid presence.
Even if the Chargers do bring Cesaire back, drafting a DE high would seem a priority. That would allow Cesaire to return to the role of super-sub he occupied for many years. It would also provide depth to Castillo, who has struggled staying healthy for a full season.
