Chargers Draft Picks Set

The San Diego Chargers have learned the loaction for each of their seven picks in the upcoming NFL Draft (April 26-27) this week.

The first three rounds were already settled prior to the league awarding compensatory picks last week. The Chargers did not have the luxury of obtaining any compensatory picks.

Under terms of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in a year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four. The 32 compensatory choices announced will supplement the 230 choices in the regular seven rounds of the 2003 NFL Draft (April 26-27). This year, the compensatory picks will be positioned within the fourth through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

The Chargers have one pick in each round with the first one being the 15th overall selection.

Previous picks in the 15 spot for the Chargers include:

1988: Anthony Miller, wide receiver out of Tennessee. Miller played six years for the Chargers earning two Pro Bowl nods in 1989 and 1990. He spent ten years in the league going to Denver for three seasons and finishing his career in Dallas in 1997.

1974: Don Goode, linebacker out of Kansas. Goode played six seasons with the Chargers.

1970: Walker Gillette, wide receiver out of Richmond. Gillette was in the Chargers organization for just two seasons before moving on to St. Louis and the New York Giants. He played in the NFL for a total of six seasons.

In the second round, the Chargers pick 46th overall.

In the third round, they have the 80th overall selection.

San Diego's fourth round pick is the 112th choice overall.

In the fifth round, the Bolts have the 149th pick.

In the sixth round, they choose 188th.

The Chargers' final pick is the 229th overall selection in the seventh round.
