Los Angeles Chargers draft needs: 5 small schoolers who can help turn the Chargers into a contender

Los Angeles Chargers Quarterback Philip Rivers may not have much left in the tank but if his team can help find a few players to fill the holes on their offensive line they could be a force in the AFC.

Last year the Los Angeles Chargers shocked some people, but they had a few holes that really kept them from going the big dance.  Philip Rivers is not getting any young and the Chargers better protect him if they want to win. We feel these are their biggest team needs: Defensive Tackle, Offensive Guard, Linebacker, Cornerback and Offensive Tackle, and if the Chargers can fill the void with these small schoolers they maybe on their way to take over the AFC.

Auzoyah Alufoahi, DT, Kennesaw State – Remember the name “Big Z”, no one is talking about him right now and that is a shame. Alufoahi was a basketball player and he stopped growing tall at 6040 and started growing out weighing 322 pounds. He is a FREAK though, and right now is considered a priority free agent. I love this kids ability though and feel he could be a steal for any team that takes him.

Quentin Stanford, OG, West Georgia – The Chargers have some solid players on their offensive line already but they need depth and Stanford is a guy that can come in right away and help them. The 6040, 312 pound offensive guard from Warner Robbins, Georgia has a mean streak and is an amazing run blocker. He is currently considered a priority free agent as well.

Ketner Kupp, LB, Eastern Washington – The Chargers are going to need a middle linebacker if Denzel Perryman leaves in free agency which many are predicting. Who better to fill the void that Ketner Kupp, you maybe asking yourself wait I know that last name. Well if you are thinking of Cooper Kupp you should be, because Ketner is his younger brother.  Kupp is a freak athlete and while he may only stand at 6000 he is a playmaker. Kupp is likely a priority free agent, but he will have offers if the Chargers do not pick him up.

Malik Warner, CB, Wagner College – The Brooklyn, New York native stands at 6020 and 190 pounds. He is always in the wide outs face and the Chargers will love that. The former Asa College standout is a kid that has really caught my eye this draft. He may not hear his name called in April, but his phone will likely blow up after the draft.

Caleb Harris, OT, North Greenville University – A 6060 offensive tackle who can kick his leg over his head, is exactly what you are going to get from Caleb Harris. A raw offensive tackle with tons of flexibility and ability to grow. Harris has a 34 inch vertical, can reverse dunk and can do a split at 6060 and 275 pounds. He does need to add a few pounds, but the kid is going to be special. Chargers love projects and Caleb Harris is a good one.
