The Tennessee Titans traded the No. 1 pick to the Los Angeles
Rams and the second pick in the draft was dealt from the
Cleveland Browns to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Most expect quarterbacks Carson Wentz (North Dakota State) and
Jared Goff (Cal) to be picked 1-2, giving the Chargers their
pick of all non-quarterbacks in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The top three picks in the draft have been traded only three
other times -- 1967, 1975 and 1997.
Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey is thought to be the
primary target of multiple teams drafting behind the Chargers,
including the Dallas Cowboys at No. 4 and Jacksonville (fifth).
Telesco could sit tight and draft Ramsey for the Chargers, who
lost longtime safety Eric Weddle in free agency, or opt for Ole
Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. NFLDraftScout.com rates
Tunsil as the No. 1 prospect in the draft.
Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa and UCLA linebacker Myles
Jack are also in the conversation for teams picking in and
around the top five.
If the Chargers move down, they could still land Tunsil or the
No. 2 offensive tackle prospect in the draft, Notre Dame's
Ronnie Stanley. Stanley is a sure top-10 pick according to
They might also be able to nab Jack, who some scouts believe is
sliding because of knee damage. Jack suffered a torn ACL last
season and others have publicly downplayed the so-called injury
concern, calling it a draft smokescreen.
