First of all, I'd be surprised if Michael Turner isn't moved for a mid/late 1st rounder plus a conditional pick for next year, so this mock reflects that.
1* Michael Griffin S (Admittedly, this is looking less likely by the minute, as Griffin is climbing fast and Reggie Nelson's perceived lack of brainpower is dropping his stock)
1 Steve Smith WR (Small reach, but would be a safer choice than most other wrs availible late in the first. I don't think Norv Turner wants to take a boom/bust WR, knowing that he is likely on a short leash.)
2 Josh Wilson CB (I'd rather see Harris taken here, but don't think he's even been interviewed by the SD brass. For whatever reason -- is this Florence's last year as a Charger? -- SD have met with Wilson and a few other cbs expected to go in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Again, he is another polished player that can contribute immediately. I expect this could be a theme in the early rounds.)
3 Anthony Waters ILB (Seems like a good fit for interior 3-4. If not for injury would be drafted higher.)
3 Stewart Bradley OLB (Tweener DE/OLB that should be fairly effective right away in Chargers' system)
4 Jackie Battle RB/FB (Awesome pro day workouts; would be a logical replacement for Turner)
5 Doug Datish OG/C (Typical versatile OL Chargers like to draft mid/ late.)
Last two picks are complete dart-throw wild-ass guesses. Looking at their roster they could use a better backup at nose tackle and a third TE. I know Figurs is a popular choice, but I think he'll be drafted earlier than AJ Smith would take a one-dimensional KR/PR.
5 Quinton Echols DT
7 Jonny Harline TE/ H-back
