Recent Chargers rumors have been about what they will do with the sixth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
As we get closer to the 2020 NFL Draft, there have been plenty of Chargers rumors about what the team might do with the sixth overall pick.
Due to the Chargers deciding to move on from Philip Rivers this offseason, most are expecting them to draft their next franchise quarterback. While the Chargers are certainly going to be in the mix for a quarterback, they won’t be the first team in the draft seeking a quarterback.
With the first overall pick, the Cincinnati Bengals will be selecting Joe Burrow barring a strange change in the next month. However, it looks like the Miami Dolphins will be the team that has the most impact on the Chargers’ draft plans.
Recently, Matt Miller of Bleacher Report reported what the plan might be for the Chargers. Here’s what he had to say.
"For months we’ve heard the Chargers will draft whichever quarterback the Dolphins don’t, which was believed to be between Tua and Herbert. That could still be the case, but in a conversation earlier this week, one very well-connected scout mentioned that Jordan Love is a name to watch here. That’s something I reported during Senior Bowl week—that the Chargers had a crush on the Utah State quarterback—and it could be coming full circle."
Luckily for the Chargers, this a pretty strong draft for quarterbacks, as they almost certainly should be able to grab one of the top three. The Dolphins will have a hard decision on what to do with Tua Tagovailoa.
Tagovailoa has the potential to be the best player in the draft, but his injury history makes him a question mark. For the Chargers, they might be falling for Jordan Love.
While quarterbacks on frequently drafted earlier than their true rankings, Love would be a bit of a reach with the sixth overall pick. However, we have seen teams reach on quarterbacks in the first round with the new salary format, and that could be the case for the Chargers.
With about 3 weeks before the NFL Draft, it will be interesting to see which quarterback the Chargers like. There is a lot of possibilities for the franchise, and also a lot of pressure to replace Rivers.
