    Good read, great prospects..Enjoy! (Stolen from another forum)

    The weeks leading up to the draft are often compared to a poker game, as general managers rely on deception to produce a winning hand. If there is one tell that gives away a team’s intentions, it’s the meetings that team has with top players at the Senior Bowl and Combine. Three prospects met with the Chargers at both venues, increasing the odds of those players wearing lightning bolts next year.

    One player the Chargers have met with twice now is Reggie Nelson, a free safety from the University of Florida. Despite leaving school after his junior season, Nelson was at the Senior Bowl to support his Gator teammates when he met with Chargers officials there. San Diego then met with him again in Indianapolis at the Combine and has arranged for a personal workout as well.

    The Chargers would have to be lucky for Reggie Nelson to fall to them at No. 30. However, trading up for a player of Nelson’s ability is a distinct possibility. He is a ballhawk who excels playing centerfield and is a powerful tackler, too. In San Diego, he would likely be named the starting free safety the day he signed his contract.

    “I’m someone with a great personality and I’ll be a great leader like I have been,” Nelson said.

    The second player the Chargers have now met with twice is LaMarr Woodley, a hybrid player from the University of Michigan who would play outside linebacker in San Diego’s 3-4 scheme. Like Nelson, Woodley met with the Chargers both in Mobile for the Senior Bowl and at the Combine.

    Woodley is an excellent athlete who offers a rare combination of quickness and power coming off the edge, registering 12 sacks as a senior. He can also hold his own against the run, showing the potential to be the type of two-way defender the Chargers lost in Steve Foley.

    The third player the Chargers have met with twice already this offseason is Tony Ugoh, an offensive tackle from the University of Arkansas. As a senior, he helped drive the nation’s fourth-best rushing attack as the Hogs averaged a phenomenal 228.5 yards per game. Also, he registered five or more knockdown blocks in 11 of 14 games that year.

    San Diego would benefit from adding a stud tackle like Ugoh. He could sit and learn for a year or two before moving into the starting line-up, likely bumping Shane Olivea inside to guard.

    “I love playing ball and I’m very competitive,” Ugoh said.

    Each of aforementioned trio has piqued the Chargers’ interests with his combination of productivity and potential. Because of that, each is a solid candidate to be picked by the Chargers on draft day.

    Good stuff.

    I'd like to see us talkin' with Patrick Willis. Chances are he won't be there at 30, but he'd be a great replacement for Donnie or Randall.

    Reggie Nelson, I think he still might be there but its doubtful. He is as pure of a FS as there is
    Lamar Woodley is an awesome pass rusher and would be great depth for us at OLB

    Would like to see us looking at more WRs ya know?

    I only problem i have is that i think we don't need a FS as we have Mcree but we do need a SS as we let Kiel go which was a good move becuase of all the crap he brought

    Ugoh would be a waste of a first round pick, RT isnt one of our bigger holes right now and I think drafting one would be overkill in hopes to move Olivea.

    Woodly would be hell of a steal in the second round, I see him going at about 44th. But I think he'd get limited playing time behind Phillips and Merriman.

    Nelson I love! It would take a damn miracle for him to get past the top 20 though. I think AJ needs to lower the bar a little on this one.

    My guess is they make IGOR jamalls replacement in a few years. Which means they really just have to find another castillo type d-end. Which I hear they are looking for this draft.

    I dont think Igor has the size to be Jamal's replacement.

    mc cree can play both spots. But honestly mccree is a SS not a FS. getting a top FS would really make a big difference in our backfeild.

    Igor has one thing already that would make him an outstanding NT; his power. Add another 20lbs on to him and he should be an outstanding NT.

    Nelson very likely will be gone, the Jaguars might get him
