2006 San Diego Chargers NFL Mock Draft Picks
Wide Receiver: San Diego's Reche Caldwell was picked up by New England in the off season. With Keenan McCardell and Antonio Gates being solid options a speed burner to stretch the field would help new starter Phillip Rivers.
Offensive Tackle: The Chargers Roman Oben is coming off a season ending foot injury. Oben is now 33 and his backup Leander Jordan is a poor pass protector.
Cornerback: Jamar Fletcher is still unsigned and at best is an adequate starter. Quentin Jammer and Sammy Davis are not elite but one should be a backup.
Drew Brees is a big loss as he has come into his own the last 2 seasons. With Brees heading to New Orleans, Phillip Rivers takes over the signal calling. He will have a couple solid outlets to work with in Antonio Gates and McCardell. Look for the Chargers to grab a young stud wide out with their first pick. Ohio State's Santonio Holmes and Florida's Chad Jackson could be nice fits in San Diego.
With a new quarterback taking over, solid offensive line play will be more important than ever. LSU tackle Andrew Witworth would be a nice upgrade and bring depth to a line that needs it in the second round. If they don't go with offensive line help in the second round, Fresno State's Richard Marshall and Florida's Demetrice Webb would be possible corner back selections.
