I'm aware of what most critics of my article are thinking, questioning my sanity. But what if the San Diego Chargers perform another blockbuster trade like in 2004?

We can trade our first round and our second or third round just for him. We need a nose tackle/defensive end, and here he is, right here.

In these uncapped economical times, it would seem that the Rams, Lions, and possibly the Bucs and Redskins are going to draft for the offensive side of the ball. And those teams need alot more than a quarterback, especially when the top three draft choice coaches are defensive minded.

And they would probably rather trade down and get more picks then a nose tackle that may need time to groom, as most defensive linemen do.

We do need a running back and cornerback, but we can get those in the lower rounds. We should be able to get Ben Tate in the fourth Round.

We also had a good corner in Antoine Cason, who, by the way, made 12 tackles in the game he started against the Redskins in 2009.

I'm no draft expert, nor have I ever decided a draft pick in professional football in my life, but I think A.J. Smith may spice things up like six years ago.
