Despite what many of us would consider to be a difficult time – waiting this long for the draft to occur, that is –  we are less than a week from the NFL’s premiere offseason activity.  The cattle call that is the NFL draft will be taking place before you know it.  I’ll be in New York City in the blink of an eye.  I’m on a plane as we speak, heading to Charlotte to see my amazing children.  Then it’s time to take over NYC and the NFL draft. ( Editor’s Note:  I began writing this on 5/3)

This is a big year for the Chargers and Tom Telesco.  After having what many of us consider to be a solid 2013 draft class, the hope is to replicate last year’s success.  Telesco nailed three potential first rounders in the first three rounds of the draft in his first go-around as an NFL GM.  Perhaps, the expectation level increases knowing that a player like Stevie Williams, a fifth-round selection, has yet to play in a regular season game.  Tourek Williams made the occasional play as well, despite being a sixth round pick. Additionally, Brad Sorensen managed to stay on the ’13 roster as the third quarterback.  That could say a lot about what the team has in mind for the former Southern Utah signal caller.

I find it safe to say that the 2013 draft was a success.  And, I think that most people in here would agree.  But does that put even more pressure on Telesco to trump his rookie attempt at building the team through the draft?  Sure, I can get behind that kind of thinking.

The NFL did a great job, in my opinion, of mixing up the prospects.  So, the question remains, and I’ll leave it to you, is the next Charger going to be an invitee to Radio City Music Hall?  Popular mock draft choices landing in America’s finest city such as Louis Nix III and Kyle Van Noy were not invited ( That is according to the above list which is credited to NFL.com).
