The Chargers get Philip Rivers a massive offensive lineman

The 17th pick of the 2015 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft is in!

The Pick

17) San Diego Chargers

GM - Grandeblue

Pick - Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami Explanation

DJ Fluker has been solid at tackle for the Chargers, but a player as powerful as him could be better suited on the inside of the line, and a tackle like Flowers, who many speculate could be moved to right tackle anyway at the pro level, would give San Diego an immediate replacement who excels at protecting the passer. Lance Zierlein of NFL.com compares the massive Flowers (6’6", 329 lbs) to Greg Robinson, who went #2 overall last year, showing how valuable he would be at this spot.

Raptor's View

Interesting pick for the Chargers. Flowers could be one of the biggest boom/bust players in the draft. He does compare well to Greg Robinson with tremendous size, power, and athleticism. But like Robinson he has some consistency issues, especially in pass protection. If it works out, Flowers next to Fluker at RT and RG (respectively) is a scary combination for defensive lines. A combination the Chargers could run behind, pretty much at will.
