Since the start of the 2006 season, Philip Rivers has started every game for the Los Angeles Chargers. But the veteran signal caller is slated to become a free agent in March, and it seems all but certain he’ll be in a different uniform next season.

Through Rivers’ career the Chargers have not used a high draft pick on a quarterback, simply because they didn’t really need to. But failure to form a good succession plan as Rivers advanced into his late 30’s now leaves them in a bit of a lurch, with a question over who will will be their starting quarterback for the first time in a long time.

The Chargers have become a rumored destination for Tom Brady as he mulls his future, and a trade for someone like Cam Newton could eventually be on the table. But the need for a proverbial quarterback of the future will still stand heading into April’s draft

In that search for a long-term successor for Rivers, here are two reasons the Chargers should target Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm with the No. 37 pick in the draft.

  1. Really? Take an OL or DL before a QB?
    Unless that LT is Ron Yary sitting there at 6, forget it.

  2. Nooooo Chargers front office. Rrade back a few picks. Pick up 2 draft picks from a Q.B. needy franchise. Then select Love from Utah state. And still have 2 x – tra draft picks. NOW LOAD UP on Off & Def lineman & C.B’s & W.R.’s & L.B.’s… The CONSISTENTLY COMPETITIVE franchises FOCUS on BIG BODIES w/ skill & smarts & power up front. Off & Def lines wins Championships… Franchise Q.B.’s keep your TEAM n contention to win CHAMPIONSHIPS…
