After a surprising postseason run, the San Diego Chargers have the No. 25 pick in this year's NFL draft.
But even though the Chargers reached the postseason, they still have several needs to fill on the roster. Cornerback, pass-rusher, offensive line and kicker/punt returner are primary needs San Diego should focus on in the upcoming draft.
Cornerback play improved with the addition of Richard Marshall to the starting lineup, along with the development of Shareece Wright. But San Diego still needs to add competition to that position group.
Outside linebacker Melvin Ingram made an impact in his quick return from ACL surgery. Thomas Keiser flashed in his most extensive playing time as a pro. And Dwight Freeney is expected to return for 2014 after rehabbing from a torn quad injury.
Still, the Chargers could use an edge pass-rusher, along with an interior pass-rusher to add to a solid rotation that includes defensive ends Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes.
