    2019 ES GMs Mock Draft - Final!

    I read somewhere that less than 14% of all rookies selected play more than 400 snaps in their rookie year and therefore there are very few impact starters regardless of where they are selected. You should really be flexing your muscles after they've played a few years in the league. Like I wouldn't be banging the table if you drafted Daniel Jones and watched him go at #6 but to each their own. Or you could just sneak in a humble brag after one year like this dude I took in the 3rd round last year But seriously, we've got some pretty sharp minds in our draft war rooms. Good work all.

    I did that in the 3rd this year!

    2019 ES GMs Mock Draft - Final!

    With the #242 pick in the ES Mock Draft and our last, the LA Chargers select Malik Gant S Marshall. This guy hits like a MAC truck and will be a demon on special teams with a chance to start at safety down the line. I'm still half asleep and away on holiday but will do a review of my picks some day soon Thanks all, had fun once again. Didn't do as much prep as last year but my knowledge has definitely increased on the rookies. Chur.

    Nice pick. He was one of a handful of WR's I was eyeing in the later rounds. Good body control, good route runner, leadership qualities. Great value.

    With the #200 pick in the 2019 ES Mock Draft the LA Chargers select Preston Williams WR out of Colorado State. There's a lot to like about Preston. He has the physical traits to succeed in this league. There are some definite red flags but with the right tutelage and mentoring we think can harness this kid's talents.

    He's an engima for sure. And he's a Scouser! Love it. YNWA @Gibbs Hog Heaven

    I would have had an eerily similar write up at #130. He could be the steal of the draft in the 4th. Great value. I've liked your picks thus far and agree with your sentiments. I haven't been here long enough it seems for you guys to bag my picks Trading up for Khalil Hodge was probably a reach but the more I read up on him the more I feel like he's this years Darius Leonard. His pro day was **** but I'll wear this one with pride.

    With the 85th pick in the ES Mock Draft the LA Chargers select Khalil Hodge - LB - Buffalo This kid is a well polished linebacker. He lacks raw speed but has amazing intangibles. an ability to shed blockers and athleticism. He's smart, shows great leadership qualities and brings attitude and energy to every play.

    Nice pick bro. I was thinking of a trade up as he dropped. I think he's the most complete receiver in the draft and he plays with serious swag. There's definitely good value at WR on Day 2 and 3.

    With the 28th pick in the ES Mock Draft the Los Angeles Chargers take Dexter Lawrence - Clemson. Sorry for the delay, just woke up. Contemplated emailing a short list but no-one wants to hand in their 1st round pick. But I just woke up so will give a write up later. After getting run over by the Pats last year and some of our D line leaving in FA this was a major need for us to address. Lawrence brings us 340 lbs of premium run stuffing while also showing some promise as an interior rusher, posting 99 pressures on 809 rushes over his college career. He'll fit in real nice next to Joey and Melvin .

    I liked our draft but I feel like we could have gotten much better value in the 3rd and 4th. There was so much value to be had and we took high upside projects. Hopefully they prove me wrong and are contributing sooner rather than later.

    2018 ES GMs Mock Draft is complete!

    I'm really happy with my draft. Was stoked to see Leonard go in the 2nd and Valdes-Scantling in the 5th. Thomas late in the 7th was the only guy that didn't get drafted and I only picked him over Siran Neal because I thought the Chargers had more of a need at LB (consequently they took 2 safeties) Reid fell 20 spots and Clapp didn't get picked up until late 7th. Even though Derwin James fell into their lap at #17 I feel like my draft was much better for them. Time will tell!
