Draft Day Part II

Give the San Diego Chargers credit for rolling the dice on Jacob Hester.

The Chargers traded up in the third round to select Hester. The team is getting bashed on some Web sites for giving up too much -- a second-round pick in 2009 as well as swapping thirds this year -- on a player they could have likely have gotten without the trade.

Who knows about that? It only takes one team to keep you from getting the guy you want.

Hester should be a good fit. He can be a fullback for LaDainian Tomlinson or he can fill in as a backup since Michael Turner left for Atlanta.

That he is playing for an offensive-minded coach in Norv Turner should also certainly help.
