If Todd McShay was the Chargers GM, he would take Bradley Roby

ESPN’s Todd McShay came out with an interesting article today in which he goes through the first round as if he were picking for each team. At pick No. 25, he selects Bradley Roby for the Chargers and mentions he had a tough time choosing between Roby and TCU’s Jason Verrett.

Cincinnati Bengals | Best & Worst Case Scenario for Round 1 of the NFL Draft

The Bengals are another team that could go in a handful of directions in round 1 with top needs at DE, OL, CB.
