The newest team to move to Los Johnathan Hankins Jersey Angeles needed a fresh start, and this class will help. We speculated before the draft whether the Chargers would draft a future replacement for Philip Rivers, instead they seem intent to make him better than ever. Keenan Allen has played only nine games over the past two seasons, which is why I pegged receiver as the Chargers' top need. Los Angeles got my top-ranked receiver at No. 7 in Mike Williams, a potential perennial Pro Bowler who can be thrown to even when covered. He made Deshaun Watson better last season, snagging errant throws and taking them to the house. The Chargers just need to get Allen and Williams on the field at the same time. That's a strong, young core, along with former undrafted free agent Tyrell Williams and tight end Hunter Henry. Philip Rivers has to be thrilled, and fantasy experts agree. After cutting D.J. Fluker, guard moved up to a need, and Los Angeles went with two interior linemen on Day 2. It got my Nos. 1- and 3-ranked guards in Forrest Lamp and Dan Feeney. Lamp, a four-year starter at left tackle for Western Kentucky, could end up as the Chargers' starting center when the 2017 season begins. Former Jim Thorpe Award winner Desmond King could end up at safety or slot corner -- he had 14 career interceptions. That was good value in the fifth. Isaac Rochell isn't much of a pass-rusher, but he can help in the running game.
Remember: I have to use my player grades as the prism. I'm well aware all NFL teams see players differently -- I debate with those evaluators all year. Disagreements are just the Hunter Henry Youth Jersey reality of this process, and I'm sure they have some grades on me. Grading scale: In my mind an A means it's exceptional; a B is pretty good; a C is average, with hits and questions marks; a D means below average with some big questions. An F ... well, keep reading. David Ash stepped away from football in 2014, his career as the University of Texas quarterback cut short by concussions. Then, a wild thing happened. Three years later, he jumped in a car, drove from Texas to West Virginia and joined an upstart developmental league that helped deliver him to the Carolina Panthers' rookie minicamp this weekend. Ash is among the success stories of The Spring League, an independent operation that concluded its inaugural
season last week amid measured interest from established pro leagues. Scouts visited from 10 NFL teams and two Canadian Football League teams, according to CEO Brian Woods. Another 20 teams requested practice and game video. The league was stocked with players who were at least two and as many as 10 years removed from college, prompting a mixed response from scouts and agents I surveyed. But the NFL is so starved for developmental services -- especially for quarterbacks -- that a majority of teams at least checked in during their busy pre-draft season. More than a dozen of The Spring League's players have been invited to NFL minicamps in the coming weeks.
"We were Jeremy Langford Womens Jersey pleased with the NFL turnout for sure," Woods said. "It was overwhelming and we were happy to have it. I was talking as it wrapped up with some of our coaches, and we feel like this league is in position to help quarterbacks as much as anything, and we all know that's an ongoing priority for the NFL." Woods took 105 players, split into four teams, to The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Ash was one of four quarterbacks on a list that also included NFL veterans Ricky Stanzi and McLeod Bethel-Thompson, along with former Georgia
quarterback Hutson Mason. The players, who had a median age of about 25, met and practiced for about six hours each weekday and then played games on three weekends in April. Longtime quarterback whisperer Terry Shea was among four coaches with significant NFL experience. Also on site to coach were Steve Fairchild (running backs), Donnie Henderson (defense) and Art Valero (offensive line). The structure met with approval among a scouting community that will be vital to The Spring League's future. Whether it was receiving fresh information on nearly forgotten players such as Ash, or benefiting from a conditioned arm in Bethel-Thompson -- who will participate in the New York Jets' minicamp -- the scouts saw potential in the concept. The talent level, on the other hand, probably fell short of what NFL teams envision for an established developmental league. Based on my conversations, arguably the best player there was running back Ben
