Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Keep an eye on Louis Vasquez, a third-round offensive lineman choice out of Texas Tech. His reputation is one of being ornery, and the spot at right guard is wide open. The Chargers are hoping Kynan Forney can start there, but they will give Vasquez a long look. Among the questions is his ability to run-block after playing in the spread in college. A closer look at the Chargers' picks: Round 3/78 - Louis Vasquez, G, 6-5, 333, Texas Tech...With Mike Goff leaving in free agency, the Chargers need to spice up the competition at his old right guard spot. - by The Sports Xchange
