chargers might pass on Eli.

They held workouts for top Qb prospects and it looks like they liked big ben more.

Scouts had predicted ben as the top prospect but eli was thought of as going first because of his name. not any more?

Possible premature

One thing that is odd about this article is that it was posted before the Chargers even had their workout with Manning (which is going on right about now) so I don't think this is based their impressions after the workouts but before (or maybe between Ben and Eli's workouts)...

Dan Pompei predicted the Lions to win the SB a few years ago, so I wouldn't put much stock in what he says. He likes to grasp at straws so he can look good if it happens. However, the Chargers have been making one bone-headed move after another so anything is possible.
If they were to swap #1s with the Cards for a late round pick they could still get Rothlesburegsdrfgalger or even Rivers, who had been very impressive in tryouts. Should be an interesting draft for a lot of teams.

Either way, they need a stud. If they go WR fine if they go QB fine. IMO this team has too many holes to fill through the draft. They need to make some trades to be competitive.

They should do what I did in the mock draft. ;-)

With that #1 pick, they should trade down for a shot at Shawn Andrews (who I wanted to get when I was trying to get Jax's #9 pick). An improvement at the OT position upgrades both Tomlinson and their QB. Otherwise they can trade further down for a shot at a top DE/DT prospect.

The steelers get andrews KG :-[ ;-)
Anyway i read ben actually COULD fall to the steelers or even the giants if a few things happen. i read this in espn insider and i dont think it will happen, but its interesting anyway. I dont think you can go wrong in drafting either QB. But i agree, they should trade down ;-D

I'd try and trade for Kitna (3rd rd or so), take Fitz #1 and then go for an O-linemen in the 2nd rd

I would trade LaDainian Tomlinson for the Chicago Bears and use the number one draft pick on Larry Fitzgerald.

The Bears turned it down, they already have the A-train and Thomas Jones.
