Sedrick Ellis

I’ve gotten a negative response from many people about saying we could get him at #8. Right now he is projected to us or to fall to #6 to NYJ. Before the Senior Bowl practices he was projected by many to go #9 to Cincy.

Because we have yet to see him at the combine and/or his pro day, I think we would be jumping the gun to put him as not having a chance to fall to #8.

A good example of how things change would be Alan Branch last season projected in the top 15 by just about every major draft prognosticator, who fell into the second round.

I would rather hold off judgment about where guys may or may not go in the draft. If Mike Mayock is correct, we might see McFadden fall to the late first round. In past years plenty of guys have fallen in the draft.

I would say Ellis has the chance to go the other way and pass up Dorsey as well. Mayock seems to think Ellis is better right now based on the Senior Bowl.

Kentwan Balmer is also a stud and maybe he can help if we decide to trade down and we miss Ellis. Many people would be displeased, but Balmer looked studly at the Senior Bowl until his injury.

  • @gpettooh Probably true. Chargers need to get healthy. Have about a month to do so, but need to also win 3 games and not suffer any more.
