The San Diego Chargers need to win now.
If they miss the playoffs for a third straight season, the Chargers will likely make wholesale changes. General manager A.J. Smith and coach Norv Turner will likely be sent packing, something many expected would happen after last season.
The Chargers did a nice job in free agency recently, as they signed 15 players. Do you think the Chargers should go big in the draft and try to move up from No. 18 to take an elite player?
Trading into the top 10 to take a player such as South Carolina pass-rusher Melvin Ingram, North Carolina pass-rusher Quinton Coples or Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe could require parting with a future No.1 pick.
Smith has been aggressive in the past in moving up in the draft. With a need for an impact defender and the need to win now, Smith could be tempted to play loosely with a future pick. Do you think he should? Vote in our poll and express your opinion in the comments section below. We will review the poll results Wednesday.
