    Inside the Chargers draft center

    U-T Multimedia: In a video report from inside the “war room,” Union-Tribune Chargers writer Kevin Acee explains what goes on in the epicenter of the team’s draft operation.

    The Chargers’ front-office members, scouts and coaches convened in the war room this past Thursday and will be there almost nine hours a day through the end of the week, breaking down and ranking every player who could possibly be drafted. This year’s NFL draft is April 22-24.

    For a rundown on what goes on in the room from now until the final pick is made, see uniontrib.com/war-room

    Apr 19 11:24 ET Chargers general manager A.J. Smith won't predict whether an uncapped season will cause more holdouts among rookies. He said some teams may go crazy when trying to sign rookies, but his team will not be one of them.Chargers general manager A.J.

    Apr 19 11:12 ET The Chargers have seven area scouts to check out talent. GM A.J. Smith says the team's budget for scouting college players is probably in the middle of the league's 32 teams. Some teams have more scouts, and some have fewer.The Chargers have seven area scouts to check out talent. GM A.J.

    Apr 19 11:10 ET If another team is considering a trade with the Chargers, general manager A.J. Smith has let all of them know he doesn't like doing last-minute deals. Smith prefers to have conversations leading up to the draft so he doesn't have to evaluate on the fly.If another team is considering a trade with the Chargers, general manager A.J.
