"Every draft is great. I think that where this team needs some help there is some real good football players there. We all had a chance to sit down and interview them and talk with them and see them," John Butler said talking about the NFL scouting combines. "It was really quite good. Some of the secondary people were quite impressive. Defensive tackle, I thought very impressive. Wide receiver I think there was a couple head and shoulders above and then it becomes a good crop."

Based on what Butler has said and the consensus of the sampled group, it would only make sense that the Chargers go defensive tackle in the Draft. Corner is still a serious need but it does not appear round one will hold value at that slot. The board will dictate whom he picks. The favorites are already in, but that in itself is another article all together coming Monday afternoon to Chargers Update.
