2011 NFL Mock Draft: San Diego Chargers Reload on Defense, Select J.J. Watt
2011 NFL Mock Draft Gives San Diego A Chance To Add on the Defensive Line
It's no secret that San Diego needs an explosive presence on the defensive line.
While the Chargers would love Cameron Jordan at this point in the draft, now that he's off of the board, that's really not an option. However, no one in San Diego is going to complain about getting J.J. Watt with its selection.

Watt is an explosive defensive lineman who can get off quickly at the line of scrimmage and get after the passer. He's going to disrupt opposing quarterbacks and really force bad passes the secondary can take advantage of.
With Watt in the mix, the Chargers have him alongside Luis Castillo and that's not a bad tandem if you're trying to compete in the AFC West with teams like Kansas City and Oakland. If Jordan is on the board, he's going to San Diego, but Watt isn't a bad consolation prize.
