Community Mock Draft: Round 1, Pick 18 - San Diego Chargers

The Cincinnati Bengals have made their pick, and offensive guard David DeCastro finally comes off the board. He's the top offensive lineman in the draft, and the Bengals could use some help on the line. It's a wonder the big man lasted this long, really, because he looks like a long-term, elite offensive guard.

On we move to the San Diego Chargers, who have once again managed to lose some key players in free agency without actually getting anything back. How this team manages to be competitive year in, year out is beyond me.

Oh no wait, it isn't. Because Philip Rivers.

Still, because they've let everyone and their mother walk, they have a plethora of needs. Mostly, their defense still isn't very good and they lack pass rushers. Who do you think they'll pick?
