    The final draftcountdown.com mock draft has us taking Ryan Matthews at #28 and Terrence Cody at #40. I still think Matthews will be gone by 28. Still think Cody is a risk but this would be a solid first 2 picks.

    28 SAN DIEGO CHARGERS: RYAN MATHEWS, RB, FRESNO STATE

    Scouting Report
    This seems like a match made in NFL Draft Heaven, assuming Ryan Mathews makes it past the Houston Texans at #20. Last year the Chargers ranked 31st in the league in rushing, and that was with LaDainian Tomlinson. Even though they brought back Darren Sproles for at least one more year it’s safe to say that San Diego will be looking to upgrade their ground attack very early on in this draft. Mathews isn’t flashy but he is a workhorse with a nice blend of size and speed who would form a terrific 1-2 punch with Sproles. The Chargers other most glaring need is at nose tackle and while Dan Williams will most likely be long gone they could take a look at Terrence “Mount” Cody. After trading away Antonio Cromartie a cornerback like Kareem Jackson or Devin McCourty could be in the discussion now as well and don’t rule out a defensive end like Jared Odrick and Tyson Alualu or even a right tackle such as Vladamir Ducasse If Mathews is still available he'll be the pick though.


    40 SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (f/SEA): TERRENCE CODY, DT, ALABAMA
    Scouting Report

    A prototypical run - stuffing nose tackle to anchor the middle of their 3-4 defense.

    about 4 1/2 hours after the first pick if each team gets 10 minutes.

    which sucks for us in the EST and all points East

    This may sound crazy but a certain somebody I know is claiming the Bolts are taking Linvel Joseph @ 28.. Sounds like madness, I know..

    Talk from NYC is that the Chargers are looking to move up. Is that for Matthews, Williams, Oderick?

    More discussion of Tebow to Broncos
    Posted by Michael David Smith on April 22, 2010 4:55 PM ET
    If Tim Tebow's agent pretty much knows where the former Florida quarterback is going, and if Tebow's dad is confident that his son will be a Top 15 pick, might the Denver Broncos, picking 11th, be the team to take him?

    Mike Klis of the Denver Post writes that 11th overall would be too high for the Broncos to pick Tebow. But he adds that the Broncos just might take him, especially if they can engineer a trade that has them picking somewhere in the 20s.

    Of course, if Tebow's dad is right, he'll be gone before a pick in the 20s. But the Broncos have been showing plenty of interest in Tebow lately, and the closer we get to the draft, the more that interest seems to increase.

    According to Klis, Broncos coach Josh McDaniels would love to make a bold move, would love a quarterback who's at least 6-foot-3, comfortable in the shotgun and a proven winner, would love an intelligent, high-character player, would love a passer he can develop as a project, and would love someone who can help the Broncos' offense in short-yardage situations.

    That all sounds like Tebow. Does all this Tebow talk suggest that where there's smoke there's fire, or is this a smokescreen? We'll find out in a few hours.

    Man, it's really stupid having the draft in primetime. It's going to be going on past midnight in eastern time. I don't give a **** though because I'm 2 hours before EST and have an accounting final tomorrow. As a marketing major, THIS IS A POOR MARKETING DECISION!

    I don't watch college football so I still don't understand why I constantly hear about this guy when he's expected to be drafted in rounds 2 or 3. I wonder what he eats that makes his anus taste so good to the media.
