i see what u mean.. there is basically NO depth at safety besides kenny phillips... (i consider regie smith a CB) i might even switch the NT in the 2nd and safety in the 3rd

Still doesnt change the mindset...

56% of starting DT's were drafted in the 3rd round or later...and only 37% of them are with the teams that drafted them. There is plenty of talent at that position in the later rounds and regardless of where they are drafted...it is often going to take a few years for them to develop.

Safety does peak in the 2nd round with 36% of starters being drafted there....but 54% are drafted in the 3rd round or later. What is different is that most starting safeties in the league are still with the team that drafted them (66%)...which tells me that they contribute earlier and dont need as long to develop.

However 60% of starting OLB's are drafted in the FIRST three rounds (peaking in the first round at 27%) and 75% are still with the teams that drafted them ..meaning that they make an almost immediate impact.

The Chargers are going to have to decide where they need more depth ...Safety or LB... when making that first choice.

Being that it takes awhile for DT's to develop.....the 1st round holds just as many Johnathan Sullivans & Reggie McGrews...as it does Warren Sapps & Casey Hamptons

i've already posted it...actually they don't have a 4th pick either....

Quote:
VALUE.........I don't think the chargers GM understands " value ". they did waste last years first on craig davis ..... the chargers also gave up this years second (dolphins - chambers), and 3rd (bears - traded up to get weddle)....so they better get the value at the most pressing need, according to charger web sites, they claim DT( nose guard), OT, AND LBER as the top areas of need. and of course loosing RB ,turner adds another.
Chargers to Dolphins. The San Diego Chargers traded their second-round pick in 2008 to the Miami Dolphins for Chris Chambers.
Chargers to Bears. San Diego traded their third-round pick in 2008 to the Chicago Bears, as well as the 62nd, 93rd, and 167th overall selections in 2007 (used to select Dan Bazuin, Garrett Wolfe and Kevin Payne, respectively) in exchange for the 37th overall selection in 2007 (used to select Eric Weddle).
Chargers fourth-round pick. The Chargers used this pick in the 2007 Supplemental Draft to select Paul Oliver.

here's a list of traded picks....
