    Who Will (not 'should') The Chargers Draft in First Round?

    This one's brutal: With so many holes in this roster, you can't advocate for one
    guy without acknowledging that there's a significant downside to taking him.
    With Ramsey, you can obviously argue that his talents won't be fully realized
    until the Chargers have a significantly better pass rush.
    But I think Telesco is afraid Tunsil's too risky, and Ramsey's sheer talent makes
    him a safe CYA pick that can be relatively easily defended...
    Buckner would be my next guess...but I'm in pure guessing mode, re. TT.

    *********************************************************************
    Just hours before they are officially on the clock, here is one
    final look at who many notable pundits project the Bolts to select.

    Is there a box for "Other" in this quiz?

    What I hate is that we might choose Stanley without a trade down. If we are stuck at #3 we might as well poop on someones cheerios and take the BPA in tunsil or Ramsey. More scared of Ramsey but sometimes you just have to roll the dice. tbh though i am trying to sell myself on the Stanley pick... It might work out for the best seeing how we just invested last year on Melvin Gordon.

    Would be ok with Buckner, Ramsey or Tunsil as they all fit needs and are all the draft's best players at their respective positions.

    Would be disappointed with Bosa as he isn't a scheme fit but I can see he has talent so would be kinda curious to know what they saw in him if they picked him.

    Would be absolutely furious if we pick Stanley. Not that he isn't a good player, but OT isn't the priority to me so could only justify it if we get the top guy in the draft and the value is too much to pass up on (hich may be the case for Tunsil but not for Stanley). I have question marks about Stanley's dominance, I haven't really seen him dominate much at the college level, too finesse for my liking, don't see him as a great run blocker either.

    :p

    Genius! (but note, the poll closes at 4:59pm PDT...about 30 minutes before your clever plan is to be put into effect...)

    ETA: I find it interesting that--as of 5:55am PDT--Ramsey has an early lead, here,
    amongst the first dozen polled, despite Acee claiming Chargers have already ruled him out.

    I am hoping for Buckner, but we are talking about Telesco, so my gut, I mean nausea, tells me it is going to be the one player that it would be lame to take--Ramsey, instead of one of the three good choices (Buckner, Stanley, Tunsil).

    Give Telesco a chance to f*ck this up and the odds are almost certain that he will.

    Once again, Telesco agrees with CC...it would be "lame" to draft someone super talented like Ramsey...
