The Los Angeles Chargers should start thinking about finding a long-term quarterback replacement for Philip Rivers, but that’s probably not a high priority early in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Instead, the Chargers would think protecting Rivers better in coming seasons would be wise, especially at the tackle positions, where Kansas State’s Dalton Risner would be a solid selection.
Risner, 6-foot-5 and 308 pounds, moves well in space, especially in pass protection.
And while he probably won’t ever wind up being a blind-side protector at the NFL level, his potential to lock down the right side of the Chargers offensive line for the next 10 years is a real possibility.
Look for the Chargers to find more help in their secondary too, an added player to pair with strong safety Derwin James.
