    Chargers.com has the NFL Draft covered

    a a Chargers.com will expand its draft coverage this year with several new features, including a “Pick Cam” through which Chargers officials will announce each of the team’s picks before any other news outlet.
    For Chargers fans who want to be the first to know who their team is drafting in the 2009 NFL Draft, Chargers.com will be the place to be.

    The team’s official website is expanding its draft coverage this year, bringing fans several new features to provide the quickest and most in-depth information on the newest members of the organization.

    Through “Pick Cam,” a new camera feed located just outside the War Room, fans will hear each selection on Chargers.com BEFORE any other news outlet, including NFL Network and ESPN. As soon as General Manager A.J. Smith and his staff make their decision, a Chargers official will bring the player’s name to Pick Cam.

    And for fans who expect to be out and about on Draft Weekend can sign up to receive text messages from the team as each choice is made. To receive these Draft Text Messages, sign up simply by texting CHARGE to 41513 or click here. Standard messaging rates will apply.

    Immediately following the announcement of each pick, a key member of the Chargers’ front office will be live on camera to discuss the team’s newest member. In addition, fans will be able to hear directly from the newest Charger before he speaks with any other news outlets as Pick Cam will air a live telephone interview with each choice.

    Sunday afternoon, fans will have the opportunity to have their questions answered by the Chargers’ first-round draft pick. Fans may email questions to (address), and the top pick respond through an on-camera Q&A session.

    As always, Chargers.com will provide in-depth information, video highlights of each choice and live video of press conferences, include the introduction of the top pick upon his arrival in San Diego Sunday afternoon.

    The NFL Draft starts at 1 pm PT on Saturday (April 25) with Rounds 1 and 2 held on the first day. Rounds 3 through 7 will take place on Sunday morning beginning at 7 am PT.

    The Chargers currently own eight selections in this year’s draft. They’ll pick 16th overall in the first round and 78th in the third. They hold three choices in the fourth round, which come at the 113th, 133rd and 134th picks. They’ll also pick in the fifth (148), sixth (189) and seventh (224) rounds.

    Be sure to read the "fine print" before you sign up for ANY text alerts. Companies (and the Chargers may/man not be any different) often share/sell that info to other marketing companies. Next thing you know, you're getting texts from everywhere.
