Earlier today we brought you the Cincinnati pick as made by rdr3131, and now we're moving along to the Chargers selection as made by tks24. As a reminder to all our mock drafters, we'll email you when it's your pick. So if the email you have on file with SBNation isn't valid, or if you're taking too long to respond, we'll move to the back up drafter.
And with the 18th pick of the WCG Mock Draft, the San Diego Chargers select...Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama
tks24: San Diego had problems with its pass rush last year, and now suddenly they find themselves in the same division as Peyton Manning. Larry English hasn't proven anything and is constantly injured so the Chargers will take a physical, experienced pass rusher to solidify the OLB position. Courtney Upshaw has played the position in the 3-4 at Alabama, and while he isn't incredibly athletic he has proved that he can produce while playing against much higher quality competition than any of the remaining pass rushers.
