The ideal and realistic seven-round mock for the San Diego Chargers

Round 1: Pick 25 Kyle Fuller: CB, Virginia Tech (6’0”/190lb): An off-ball corner that would be able to play in the 7-back, 1-off zone-man switch scheme of the Chargers secondary.

Fuller will definitely be an upgrade at the cornerback...
