The Los Angeles Chargers were one of the eight original AFL teams. After moving to San Diego in 1961, the AFL and NFL merged prior to the 1970 season. During their existence, the Chargers have made seven playoff appearances including three AFC Championship Games and one Super Bowl (XXIX).The team has several members who have been inducted into the NFL Professional Hall of Fame: WR Lance Alworth (1962-1970), QB Dan Fouts (1973-1987), HC/GM Sid Gilman (1960-1969, 1971), WR Charlie Joiner (1976-1986), OL Ron Mix (1960-1969), TE Kellen Winslow (1979-1987), and DE Fred Dean (1975-1981).With the impressive amount of talent the Chargers have enjoyed throughout their history the question begs to be answered as to who the most memorable draft picks were. Memorable is defined by Merriam-Webster as "worth remembering." Synonyms include indelible, unforgettable, notable, celebrated, monumental, and meaningful. Granted, memorable can be both positive and negative.There is near-complete unanimity that the most memorable-in-a-really-bad-way Chargers' draft pick is Ryan Leaf; however, since I have already written an extensive article on this catastrophe, this article will focus on those draft picks who were positively memorable. This was difficult as there are many players who could have made this list. What do you think?
