SB Nation New York 2011 NFL Mock Draft: With 18th Pick, San Diego Selects ...

Cameron Jordan, DE, Cal.

The San Diego Chargers' biggest need heading into the 2011 NFL Draft is to add a quality defensive end to their 3-4 defense. Fortunately for the Chargers, even with J.J. Watt having just gone to the New England Patriots at 17 there are quite a few to choose from.

In addition to Jordan, Ryan Kerrigan of Purdue, Adrian Clayborn of Iowa, Cameron Heyward of Ohio State and Muhammad Wilkerson of Temple are all still on the board. Jordan and Wilkerson are likely the two who fit what is called the "five technique" defensive end in a 3-4 the best, and for me the choice here will be Jordan.

Draft Countdown summarized Jordan this way:

Underrated prospect who, like his former teammate Tyson Alualu, could end up being selected much earlier than most realize --- Isn't flashy and may never be a dynamic sack artist in the pros but should be a solid starter for a very long time.
