    Thanks for the love for Bolttalk

    The only thing I'd note is that the Chargers got three positions of need with their first three picks and, at least IMHO, three starters down the road. I think that should've boosted the grade to an A- but I think that's knitpicking

    Nice job Em...... for once, somebody noticed a couple of our undrafted guys as well. :tup:

    Few teams have as good a record as the Chargers in turning undrafted guys into players. We might not have drafted a CB, but we just signed one after the rookie minicamp tryouts.... Arthur Hobbs.

    Nice work, Em. I think Green is going to turn into something pretty special as a pass-catcher. :tup:

    Thanks Gang!! I'm impressed with what you guys did in the draft.. Now I guess I have to have a soft spot for you guys since now we (Cajuns) now have one of our own on your roster! LOL

    I still dont understand all this CB talk...

    People keep saying "we need insurance for Jammer"... and for some reason nobody trusts Gilchrist, even though he played so well when Jammer was hurt last year that instead of replacing him, they took Cason out for a few weeks and left him in there, and that was his first time ever playing CB in the NFL...

    And then Wright is a different story, but he's got TONS of potential. He's 5'11" 185, but extremely quick breaking on the ball, and physical as all hell. He's more of a Asante Samuel type risk taker than a safe CB, but that isn't a horrible thing if you put a S over top of him like we do very often.

    We may need a true #1 CB next year, but there were none in this draft that could even be considered that where we were picking, and he would've been our 4th or 5th CB anyway. Its just dumb to think that we would draft a replacement for Jammer this year, when we have two guys who very well could do that in Gilchrist/Wright this year.

    I don't understand downgrading a draft because the team didn't draft a corner, while liking all of the draft picks that were made...
