    BOOM! AJ strikes again - love it! and Charlie is getting some bank - if Hasslebeck gets hurt (again which is likely) Charlie could have a legit chance to start and might be their QB in waiting for when Matt is ready/has to hang it up. Either way, additional reps for Charlie should really help his play improve - gotta be hard when all your practice is with scrubs and you only get to play in summetime every year.

    Love this trade. Moving up 20 spots, we'll be in great shape picking up a DT and RB. Plus we have 2 additional 3rd rounders the following season.

    Probably have two seconds and two thirds by the time next year is over, at the time when a ton of our big players are going to be UFAs.

    Not to mention, if the chips fall correctly (though maybe its wishful thinking), we could conceivably get both Ryan Matthews and Terrance Cody in the same draft. How much better would acquiring those two players make us?

    Not sure what all the hub bub is about.

    Didn't AJ draft him in the 3rd round?

    so....

    we get a 3rd round pick back after 3 years?

    HAHAHAHAHA OMG :icon_rofl:

    Its a great feeling to come home after a long day and see that AJ moved us up 20 spots in the 2nd, and got us an extra 3rd next year for a guy who has never thrown a pass in the NFL.:icon_toast:

    We move up 20 spots in the 2nd round plus we get another 3rd round pick next year. Two 3rd round picks next year can be traded for someones 2nd round pick which gives me wood.

    Chargers now have drafting power

    March, 17, 2010

    By Bill Williamson





    Charlie Whitehurst may make the San Diego Chargers better immediately and down the road.

    Not bad for a guy who has never thrown an NFL pass.

    Taking advantage of the Seahawks’ need to develop a young quarterback, the Chargers received a great bounty for a player who has never been a factor and did not appear to have a future in San Diego any time soon.

    In return for Whitehurst, Seattle flipped second-round picks with San Diego in next’s month draft and will send the Chargers a third-round pick in 2011. San Diego will now draft No. 40 in the second round, 12 picks after its No. 28 selection in the first round. San Diego, which had the No. 60 pick in the second round, now has three third-round picks in 2011. The Chargers got a third-round pick next year when it sent cornerback Antonio Cromartie to the Jets earlier this month. The choice can improve to a second-round pick based on Cromartie’s playing time.

    These two trades give San Diego great flexibility and a great opportunity to reload.

    The Chargers have more draft needs this year than in recent years, and these trades will allow them to find several quality players. The Chargers need a running back and a nose tackles. They should be able to address those needs at No. 28 and No. 40.

    San Diego could potentially package both picks and move up in the first round to get Clemson running back C.J. Spiller, who is considered the best back in the draft, if he is available in the 12-15 range. San Diego could also start using those 2011 third-round picks as trade bait.

    The Chargers are in a position of strength – all because they traded their third-string quarterback, who was selected with the 81st pick of the third round in 2006. Whitehurst was nowhere near unseating Billy Volek as Philip Rivers’ backup.

    I know some San Diego fans haven’t been thrilled with the team’s lack of activity this offseason. But this was a huge move. Getting this type of value for guy who doesn’t play is simply stunning.

    Watch for San Diego to try to replace Whitehurst late in the draft with a developmental quarterback prospect. No offense to Whitehurst, but he will not be difficult for San Diego to replace. But his value to Seattle should pay off big for the Chargers.

    A.j. is one wheeler dealer. Good to see he's getting back to his old ways. What a deal. And I think there may be more to come before draft time.:yes:

    Awesome, but I wouldn't trade that much to get Spiller. I'm not so sure Jahvid Best won't be a better pro if he can stay healthy.


    Also remember there were rumors that teams were discussing pursuing Merriman and Jackson, and that Sproles may still be delt. I'd like to see us match any offer to Jackson, but if we can get a 1st for Merriman.....:tup: I know it seems like "too much movement", but lets face it Merriman has no future here past 2010 and Sproles already got a taste of the open market.

    Agreed. I just make the comparison to Best because he's the same style of player, and he's almost guaranteed to fall to 28.
