With the 25th pick in the NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers select…

Odell Beckham Jr, WR, LSU

Selection made by Ernie Padaon, Bolt Beat

Here is the analysis on the selection:

A lot of the talk of late in San Diego has the Chargers shying away from Jason Verrett with the first round draft pick, so I will go with a choice that goes with that thinking. With Odell Beckham Jr still on the board, the team has to like the possibilities of him stretching the field on offense and helping out on special teams. He would bring another threat on offense and would free up Keenan Allen on the opposite side. Philip Rivers would have another weapon to throw the football to.
