Complete Chargers Draft Day Trade History

The Los Angeles Chargers enter this year’s NFL Draft armed with the following seven selections:

Round 1 – 7th overall
Round 2 – 38th Overall
Round 3 – 71st Overall
Round 4 – 113th Overall
Round 5 – 151st Overall
Round 6 – 190th Overall
Round 7 – 225th Overall

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean the Bolts will make all those picks.  

Trades are one of the most exciting parts of the NFL Draft, and a look at the Chargers history shows that they occur more often than not. In fact, only five drafts since 2000 did not feature a draft day trade by the Bolts.
