They Have A More Urgent Need at No. 6
At lot of early mock drafts have the Chargers taking either Justin Herbert or Tua Tagovailoa with their first round pick (No. 6 overall). But offensive tackle is a more critical need for them, as might be defensive tackle.
Missing on a quarterback can set a franchise back years. Herbert and Tagovailoa both carry risk, albeit for different reasons, that doesn’t have to be taken on. The Chargers can and should use their first pick on someone like Alabama offensive tackle Jedrick Wills before considering who their next franchise quarterback will be.
If Herbert or Tagovailoa falls and a team below them covets him, the Chargers also would be in a prime position to trade down and get an extra draft pick or two.
