Draft Grades – San Diego Chargers

I’ve been looking at the fantasy repercussions of the 2013 Draft and giving out a few grades and rankings. The grades mostly focus on fantasy-relevant positions, but I’m also examining overall positional value and strategy. A complete list of teams already covered can be found at my author archive.

No. 13 San Diego Chargers                               Grade: B

D.J. Fluker was a reach and a reach at a position where I’ve hammered other squads for taking elite players. His selection makes a little more sense in San Diego because they weren’t drafting in the top five, desperately needed an offensive lineman – any offensive lineman – and got whipsawed by the run on tackles. It still knocks down what was otherwise a strong draft.

Manti Te’o is a bit of a strange fit for San Diego’s scheme but a value neutral pick. His draft slot matched his on-field production after months of pointless drama turned out to be just that.

The Keenan Allen pick really makes this draft. Before it was clear his PCL wasn’t healing properly, Allen was the top intermediate threat in the entire draft. A good case could be made for a handful of teams trading back into the bottom of Round 1 for Allen, which obviously makes pick 76 patently absurd. Not all RotoViz writers agree, but Allen should win a starting job from Day 1 and form an underrated 1-2 punch with Danario Alexander.
