2014 NFL Draft First Round Grades: San Diego Chargers

25th Overall Pick: Jason Verrett, CB, TCUThis was a very predictable selection.

While they still have 2nd year (not so young) Margus Hunt, a guy like Kony Ealy might be to tough to pass on. Also don’t be entirely surprised if the Bengals throw-out their...

The 49ers will not have Carlos Rogers, last year’s primary nickel corner for the 2014 season.
