#25 San Diego Chargers: Darqueze Dennard, CB MichSt
Rory’s Take: The two biggest needs for the Chargers are cornerbacks and pass rush.
Chase’s Take: Dennard is one of the potential franchise cornerbacks in this draft, earning a great reputation during Michigan State’s Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl run last year as the top press corner in the 2014 class. A physical talent, Dennard is a step behind Gilbert athletically which is why he comes in as the second corner taken in our mock.
