    That's a pretty good draft but unless they want Brandon Taylor looks like not many options for safeties after Smith goes. What would be your next move?

    Cant remember his name, but theres a CB that has 4th or later rank and is versatile enuff to switch to the SS spot. I like this fix if we can get Barron or Smith. Ima have to figure out his name so I can not be surprised when he gets drafted high to another team.

    I think so. But I think I found a few more Reach guys that could end up stars at SS.

    http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/apr/23/bolts-may-need-creativity-draft-safety/

    Safeties

    EARLY
    Mark Barron, Alabama | 6-1, 213
    Quarterbacked the Crimson Tide secondary in 38 starts. Multi-dimensional. Little debate to place as best safety prospect in draft.
    Harrison Smith, Notre Dame | 6-2, 213
    Former captain started 47 of 51 games, including 15 at linebacker. Seven career interceptions all came as junior in 2010.
    Brandon Taylor, LSU | 5-11, 209
    Developed from cornerback to free safety to strong safety. Effective inside box, stepping up in run support.
    LATER
    George Iloka, Boise State | 6-4, 225
    Started all over secondary in four seasons but mostly at free safety. More a natural in pass coverage.
    Brandon Hardin, Oregon State | 6-3, 217
    Broken shoulder wiped out senior campaign. Physical college cornerback can play strong safety. Intriguing middle-round talent with special teams experience.
    Antonio Allen, South Carolina | 6-2, 210
    Played close to line of scrimmage at “spur” position, a hybrid of strong safety and cover-2 linebacker. Would take time to transition into traditional role.

    Actualy was someone else, pretty sure was a player that lined up at the S spot and Corner. And already had reports of being a safety at NFL level and drafted for S over CB.

    BUT yea ill take McKenzie too in the right round.

    no for injured players to snag this guy is who I think I was liking as a late SS prospect. Comes with already had broken shoulder, and a season without both hands from wearing casts.

    No surprise I couldnt find the guy hes listed as FS. I think this the guy I liked tho cuz he is versatile and can play Corner both S spots and even maybe some LB.

    Hell if we goin for a FS to move to SS, lets look at this guy too then.

    Name: George Iloka College: Boise State Number: 8
    Height: 6-4 Weight: 225
    Position: FS Pos2: SS/OLB Class/Draft Year: Sr/2012

    Projected Round: 2-3 High: Mid-late 2 Low: 4 Stock: [​IMG]
    Rated number 1 out of 71 FS's 81 / 1971 TOTAL

    40 Yrd Dash: 4.66
    20 Yrd Dash:
    10 Yrd Dash: 225 Lb. Bench Reps: 20
    Vertical Jump: 34 1/2
    Broad Jump: 10'04"
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.03
    3-Cone Drill: 7.03


    Tall and talented, Iloka enrolled at Boise State as a 17-year old true freshman and made an immediate impression to earn Freshman All American honors. Still, he had to overcome immaturity issues to gain respect of coaches and teammates and become team captain in 2011.

    He is an explosive athlete, but lacks quick change-of-direction that would make him special. Still, Iloka has the cover skills and length to match up well against tight ends and receivers with the closing burst and physical nature to show up in run support.

    A three-year starter, Iloka was a two-star receiver-safety recruit out of high school. He chose Boise State over TCU and UTEP, then played in every game in 2008 as a true freshman, including five starts. He had
    62 tackles, five for a loss, one sack, six pass break-ups and a career-best four interceptions to earn Freshman All-American honors.

    Because he's not an upgrade over Bigby, or even Stucky IMO.

    If he can push either of those to win the start, more power to drafting him soley for that.

    REALLY instinctive guy, flies around, real fluid, looks good in space. If we could transition him to SS I'd love it.

    I would not mind seeing AJ go heavy on LBs. That is our biggest weakness on the D right now IMO...

    Lot of CB's left, not so many safeties.

    We might have to look at converting someone along the way.

    We will find a guy to plug into the DC at SS in the 2nd or the third. IMO we can even find a guy that will work in the 4th or later depending on how much his injuries affects his stock.

    Wow... I cant imagine with how slow our LB corp was last season, with Spikes and LaBoy being out ran by the opposition as much as they were as a strength... But to each their own.

    Which ever way you want to see it is cool with me so long as it ends in the Chargers winning. :tup:

    The guy I think we should convert is already on our roster, I'd like to see us move Gilchrist to SS and pick up Trumaine Johnson to ideally replace Jammer

    well i believe spikes and laboy are the weak links of the LB core... donald butler is a stud, shaun phillips is a play maker, jarrett johnson is one of the best run defenders in the league, antawn barnes a great pass rush specialist, the team seems to be high on mouton and now melvin ingram.. idk i just feel like LB is starting to become a crowded position no?

    Gilchrist is one I'd consider. Minnifield from UVA could be a guy that would convert well.

    Also if you think about it our DB's were stellar in 2010 and horrific in 2011 a lot had to do with the lack at LB, When The Patriots got Jones and Hightower that was the exact reason analyst used for them "There DB's constantly were burned with the lack of a pass rush"

    You would hope, but its undeniable they wanted Mark Barron, and had a lot of interest in Harrison Smith as well, which means they aren't as sold on Stuckey as they are with guys like Ty Green and Vaughn Martin.

    It wasn't last season. LaBoy and Spikes played most snaps. Thus why I feel the LB corps have to be improved. in the 3/4 the LBs are the heart of the D. Slow 'veterans' like Spikes and LaBoy are a liability IMHO. We have some good LBs, but no one, not even Philips is close to the impact player I want to see prowling the middle of the D.

    Smoke and mirrors my friend smoke and mirrors hahaha


    I was so excited when they got Gilchrist last year I thought finally they were addressing their lack at safety, I don't see Gilchrist to play cover on the outside I think he is a better zone cover and side to side player, we know the kid can tackle, I just hate to think we used a 2nd round pick on a career nickel
