    With all the 1st and 2nd round picks that this team has spent on the secondary over the last decade, you would think that we would have a dominate group. Unfortunately, we have one of the worst groups.

    2002 1st round- Jammer
    2003 1st round- Sammy Davis
    2003 2nd round- D-Flo
    2003 2nd round- Terrenca Kiel
    2006 1st round- Cromartie
    2007 2nd round- Weddle
    2008 1st round- Cason
    2011 2nd round- Gilchrist

    That is 8 1st or 2nd round picks in the secondary, and only Jammer and Weddle having proven to be a quality pick so far

    4/7 were (or will be) starting for the Bolts 4 years after they were drafted, which isn't a bad % for 1st and 2nd round picks.
    Of course, that line of reasoning assumes that if you start for the Bolts, you are a good professional football player.

    That is the key. Half our current starters are not QUALITY starters. Starting, and being a quality starter are totally different. D-Flo was never a quality starter, and Cason has been benched already this year. a 1st and 2nd round pick should be starting their 2nd year, if they aren't a quality starter until their 4th year, they were a player who was drafted WAY too high

    Florence and Cromartie are starting for teams with a better record than the Chargers... so technically that would up the average even more.

    Already counted Florence (because he was in SD 4 years after he was drafted).
    Not sure why one would count Cromartie--mgmt decided to get rid of him after they drafted him. That's like counting Welker as a great UDFA pickup.
