2014 NFL Draft Grades: San Diego Chargers

The NFL Draft has come and gone and it’s now time to reflect on how each team did despite the fact that we won’t really know until much further into the future. Still, we can get a feel of how players might do in their immediate careers based off of what they did in college and how well they fit into the systems they were drafted into.

Draft Picks

Pick Player
1.25 Jason Verrett, CB , TCU
2.18 Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech
3.25 Chris Watt, OG, Notre Dame
5.25 Ryan Carrethers, DL , Arkansas State
6.25 Marion Grice, RB , Arizona State
7.25 Tevin Reese, WR , Baylor

Best Pick: Jason Verrett/CB/TCU

The Chargers have had luck with TCU players in the past and Verrett should keep the streak going. Not only is he confident, but he’s a feisty cornerback that the Chargers desperately need in their system. He reminds me of Richard Sherman in that he gets after it and thinks about things all at the same time, which will make him a terror for the other quarterbacks in the AFC West.

Worst Pick: Marion Grice/RB/Arizona State

The running back situation maybe could have been addressed earlier, assuming that it needed to be addressed at all. If the Chargers wanted to add a backfield weapon to Philip Rivers’ offense, they maybe could have traded up to grab a Terrance West or a Tre Mason in the third or fourth round.
