2015 NFL Draft – 15th Overall Pick – Chargers Draft Melvin Gordon

Surrendering a 4th and 5th round pick to move up from 17th, the Chargers take running back Melvin Gordon.

After losing Ryan Mathews to free agency, the Chargers needed a runner between the tackles. Gordon should take that role immediately and take the load off quarterback Philip Rivers. For dynasty purposes, Gordon is in a good situation and should be a top-three pick in rookie drafts. He does go to a team with the 29th ranked offensive line but Gordon will be around awhile and will be given plenty of opportunity to be a starter for a long time.
