To put it in plain English, San Diego Chargers General Manager A. J. Smith has a lot of work to do in the 2011 NFL Draft. Last year, his team missed the playoffs for the first time in five seasons and since playing in the 2007 AFC Championship Game, the Chargers have won only one playoff game.
Smith has five picks in the first 89 selections, so he must select at least two impact players to have this mess turn around. His past three drafts has only produce four starters (CB Antoine Cason, LB Larry English, G Louis Vasquez and RB Ryan Mathews).
Let’s take a look at some of Smith’s poor decisions on draft day.
