Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech (1)
We get down to the San Diego Chargers who unfortunately are sitting at a spot where a lot of their top picks will have been taken. With the top three corners gone (Dennard, Gilbert, Roby) and their favorite DT gone (Nix), they are forced to take the next guy at a position of need which in this case is Kyle Fuller out of Virginia Tech. He’s got decent size and can cover extremely well, not to mention he has pretty amazing play-making ability. Fuller can be moved around a lot in this Chargers defense or can be left alone to play on the outside in pure coverage. Fuller makes the most sence in this mock when the Chargers pick rolls around.
The Charger’s luck out with the 25th pick when they select CB Kyle Fuller out of Virginia Tech. Fuller has been a player to shoot up draft boards recently and rightfully. Fuller is a player who has no true weakness. He has good size for a corner, he can cover, he can tackle, and he is a character guy. Fuller displays amazing physicality and can hold his own in the box. His ability to cover and tackle will allow the Chargers, or whoever drafts him, to use him in multiple situations and positions on the field. The Chargers are in need of a viable to had to a less than stellar secondary, outside of S Eric Weddle.
Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State (1)
The Chargers surprised some people by qualifying for the playoffs last season. They have a solid offense, but their defense needs a lot of work if they want to continue to improve off of last year. More specifically, their group of cornerbacks leave a lot to be desired. CB Bradley Roby has as much talent as any cornerback in this draft, but off-field concerns has led to varying opinions throughout this draft process. I would be surprised if San Diego takes a best-player-available approach to this pick, due to their lack of playmakers in the secondary.
