I figured since no one made a post yet that I will for this years draft. I had a few needs to fill, and I also had to make some crucial draft day trades to be able to field a team in this season. Trades: 1. Chargers send Nmadi Asamaough to the Seahawks for Brandon Browner and a 3rd Round pick in the 2014 draft. 2. Chargers give 2014 7th overall pick to Bears for 2014 11th overall, 3rd round and 2015 3rd round pick. These trades reshaped my entire offseason, the Nmadi trade pretty much opened up triple the cap space I had previous to this seasons draft, not to mention another needed pick in this years draft. The trade down in the first round was justified because I saw there was a lot of talent at WR this draft and I felt like I could move down and feel safe in getting one of my target WR's. Picks: Round (pick) 1 (11) - WR Antwuan Rogers - 6'4'' 215 LB - 78 OVR - 97 DUR, 88 SPD, 85 AWR, 87 SFA, 88 CTH, 89 CIT, 81 RLS 86 JMP, 90 STA, 96 INJ - WR was a target position of mine in the draft, and I feel like this was a great pick. A well balance, big wide receiver who is quick off the line. This will help my play calling, the only downfall here is his 60 RTE which other than consistency will be my key area of improvement. His default development speed is quick so I'm looking forward to that. 3 (11) - DE Tommie Ponzol - 6'6'' 304 - 80 OVR - 88 STR, 81 AWR, 85 PMV, 80 TAK, 83 POW, 81 STA, 76 INJ - This was a pick I was not planning on making. This was a typical best player on the board pick. It is a bitter sweet move, he comes in highly polished and ready to play. My biggest concern is his durability and injury ratings. His development speed is starts on slow so he will have an impact but I don't know he is going to be the superstar as projected. 3 (24) - WR Dorian Daniel - 5'9'' 182 LB - 67 OVR - 85 CTH, 80 RTE, 86 JMP, 89 SPD, 95 AGI, 94 ACC, 95 ELU, 85 JKM, 85 SPM, 80 BCV, 69 INJ - A fragile WR, reminds me a lot of a Chad Hall or crappy Wes Welker. I hope he can stay on the field because his quickness is impressive, though he is not fast. I believe he has a spot on my roster as a slot WR. I do desire top end speed in my WR but his route running ability will come in handy. I had him on my radar in the draft as a late round pick and ended up pulling the trigger pretty quickly. 4 (7) - TE Jacob Lay - 6'4'' 258 LB - 69 OVR - 88 PHY, 99 DUR, 84 SPD, 85 AGI, 84 ACC, 81 CIT, 81 CTH, 80 SPC, 81 SFA, 91 JMP, 90 STA, 98 INJ - I had done some mid season scouting because I was not entirely sure Antonio Gates was coming back this season, and was planning on taking a TE with my first rounder. Lay brings a lot of desired skills to the table as a TE. He looks very, very similar to Gates. The problem is that he has 30 AWR rating. Coming into my offense, he will have about 7-10 snaps per game and I do plan on using him. He definitely adds another red target to the offense. His normal development speed will likely see a lot of points going into AWR among other things. 5 (7) - HB Chance Anen - 5'8'' 191 LB - 69 OVR - 91 SPD, 94 AGI, 87 ACC, 88 ELU, 88 SPM, 93 JKM, 75 CTH, 71 RTE - This was an auto pick, I had to go eat dinner.. Quite clearly is a receiving option out of the backfield so giving him the ball in space will be the idea moving forward. I come into this season hesitant to trust him. He has 65 CAR and 68 INJ. I was hoping he would have a better than 17 RET rating but I will find other options. Chance will probably turn into a 3rd stringer depending on the preseason and how it goes. 7 (7) - SS Joe Sarra - 6'2'' 201 LB - 66 OVR - 97 DUR, 70 ZCV, 75 PRC, 71 TAK, 80 JMP, 93 SPD, 86 ACC, 90 AGI, 82 ELU, 98 INJ - I have one FS and 4 SS's now, and Joe will unlikely make the team seeing as I could find another option on the wire. I am considering keeping him on the roster as a return man back up, but this is doubtful. Also had 30 AWR, you'd think coming out of FSU he would be decent too... My final thoughts on my first CCM draft day is that I think I held my own but have a lot of room for improvement. Next off season is going to be interesting because the Chargers squad as a whole is getting older, which frightens me quite a bit. Final Grade: B- That's my draft recap, how'd everyone else do and where do you see your picks fitting in?
