LaDainian Tomlinson wants Tunsil for Chargers

The great Chargers running back says a tackle is in order.

Former Chargers great LaDainian Tomlinson was asked this week about the No. 3 pick for San Diego, and who he wants general manager Tom Telesco to select.

The answer for the future Hall of Fame running back? Offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.

Here's what Tomlinson had to say:

"I think you look at this division, they got pass rushers on all teams: Oakland, Kansas City, Denver, they all have multiple pass rushers. The Chargers have had too many offensive line starting combinations. They need to get some stability on the offensive line. [Tunsil] to me, is clearly the best offensive lineman in the draft. Very athletic, strong. He can run block and pass block."

In less than 24 hours, we'll see if Tomlinson was right.
