(Voice of Winnie The Pooh) What's Up Chargers Chat
Oh, bother. I get a rumbly in my tumbly whenever I think of what this offense is going to need now that you told me Kev to step back and look at this new offensive scheme coming in. Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart and I need to let go of the little black rain cloud, that was Joe Lombardi, hovering over the tree of Justin Herbert in our life.
Here are the major statistics that gave us a small smakeral on the ass last year:
1). The Chargers ranked dead last targeting the middle of the field last year, as well as recorded a league-worst 45.7 run blocking grade on offense.
2). The Defense ranked 32nd among all teams against the run. They also ranked 26th in missed tackles and had the third most missed tackles on running plays with 98 and a total of 150 missed tackles.
3). The Chargers ranked 30th in the league last year in rushing yards per game with an average of 88.4 yards per game.
With that being said, how would the Heffalumps and Woozles that plagued us last year be addressed by you in the first three rounds of the draft if the Chargers suddenly pulled you into their draft war room virtually? All three of you answer with different choices of players/positions with voice of: Adam (Winnie The Pooh), Kevin (Piglet), Kyle (Eor).

My idea: 1st Round: Zay Flowers WR, 2nd Round: Darnell Washington TE (Trade Up), 3rd Round: None Via trade.
Definitely win now moves that will hit issue 1 & 3 with two guys that can attack the middle of the field and a mammoth linemen like TE that can help with blocking. Can you imagine a healthy Keenan and Mike with Zay as the slot, with that kind of tightend? Scary.
