NFL Draft Rumors: San Diego Chargers may trade up to draft Darqueze Dennard


The NFL Draft is just around the corner and teams are starting to look at not only who they can get in their projected draft slots but whewed they may be able to move to via trade. One team that might be looking at making a move are the San Diego Chargers who, among other needs, have a hole to fill at cornerback.

According to Draft insider Pat Kirwan, the Chargers may target one of the top cornerbacks in the class this year but that would require them trading up rather significantly in order to do so.

Per CBSSports.com:

If the Chargers (No. 25) want a shot at one of the top two corners, they will have to get up 10 spots, which will require expensive compensation, but if Michigan State’s Darqueze Dennard falls below No. 17, they should make the move.

This may not be the best move for the Chargers but the have to weigh trading up against what they’d get at No. 25 if they stayed put. What they wouldn’t get is Darqueze Dennard or Justin Gilbert, but they may get Jason Verrett or someone else who fills a need at a different position.
