With the NFL Draft two weeks away, I joined “Thompson & Trudell” on ESPNLA 710 Wednesday to talk Rams and Chargers. Among the topics:
The NFL Draft is three weeks away and mock drafts are swirling. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay released a two-round dueling mock draft Wednesday and their selections for the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 7 overall couldn’t be more different.
There’s been a lot of recent chatter about the Chargers potentially finding quarterback Philip Rivers’ successor in next month’s NFL draft. Rivers even addressed the topic last week on XTRA 1360 in San Diego.
The Los Angeles Chargers are signing offensive tackle Russell Okung to a four-year, $53 million deal with $25 million in guarantees, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
The Los Angeles Chargers released offensive lineman D.J. Fluker, cornerback Brandon Flowers and wide receiver Stevie Johnson just before Tuesday’s NFL free agency negotiation period, per multiple reports.
With the NFL Scouting Combine underway in Indianapolis, below are three prospects who make sense for the Chargers based on when they select in the 2017 NFL Draft:
Los Angeles Chargers offensive tackle King Dunlap was arrested in Nashville Thursday night for allegedly violating a protective order.
The Rams and Chargers are slated for one-year turnarounds before their rookie head coaches even step foot on the sidelines.
Edge rushers come at a premium in today’s NFL. Chargers outside linebacker Melvin Ingram is a few weeks away from reaping the benefits.
