Mark Schlereth Talks NFL Offseason

The first two picks of Thursday’s NFL Draft likely won’t come as any surprise, with quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz seemingly destined to go No’s. 1 and 2 in some order to the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles. The suspense goes away when two teams with holes at the QB position trade up to get the top picks in the draft.

The real excitement begins with the San Diego Chargers picking at No. 3. The Bolts have needs on the offensive line and in the secondary, and it just so happens that the top two prospects according to most are offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil and and safety Jalen Ramsey. Analysts are divided on who the Chargers will and should take, but ESPN’s Mark Schlereth believes protecting quarterback Philip Rivers is in San Deigo’s best interests.

The draft isn’t the only thing Schlereth spoke out on.

While Tom Brady’s suspension dominated headlines yesterday, two other quarterbacks have spent plenty of time in the news this offseason.

Following the Eagles move up to No. 2 in pursuit of a signal-caller, last year’s starter Sam Bradford has asked for a trade. Schlereth think’s Bradford’s huge contract will limit teams’ interest in the seven year veteran.

Another veteran QB who could be on the move is San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers and Broncos almost worked out a deal for Kaepernick, but the negotiations fell apart over payment of his contract and a potential pay cut. To Schlereth, Kaepernick is right to refuse accepting anything less than his contract.

With so much going on in the NFL, it’s easy to forget the season is still five months away.
