The NFL Draft is only a week and a half away so Garrett and Jamie play GM on FOUR mock drafts. They each do a mock draft guessing what they think the Chargers will do through all 7 rounds and then they each give their ideal picks for the 2018 draft. Not only that, the guys give you the 3 most overrated players in this draft and their Top 10 overall big board. Listen and prepare yourselves for the NFL draft starting next Thursday.
Today marks the beginning of the 2018 Lightning Round Podcast Draft Shows and it begins with an exciting new upgrade they’ve done this year in their analysis. After they give details on how they’re gonna layout these shows, Garrett and Jamie breakdown the “projected” Top 9 draft eligible Wide Receivers and how they have them all graded. Once they run through the list, the guys add two more “sleeper” picks each and then rank their Top 5 and even extend it out to their Top 10 Wide Receivers in this draft class. The “projected” Top 9 players they cover are:
Calvin Ridley – Alabama
Courtland Sutton – SMU
James Washington – Oklahoma St.
Auden Tate – Florida State
Christian Kirk – Texas A&M
Anthony Miller – Memphis
Deon Cain – Clemson
Equanimeous St. Brown – Notre Dame
Marcell Ateman – Oklahoma St.
The season hasn’t officially come to an end yet and the Lightning Round Podcast is ready to move onto Free Agency already. The guys break down their Top 5 lists of Offensive and Defensive Free Agents that they think are the best fits for the Chargers. After giving 10 names each in order, they then choose a few off their lists that they think are not only attainable but would look for the Chargers to possibly sign in Free Agency.
