Chargers Rumors: San Diego To Take Ronnie Stanley In NFL Draft?

The San Diego Chargers hold the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL Draft, and there have been plenty of rumors about whom they'll take with that pick. Most of the reports have focused on FSU DB Jalen Ramsey, Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil and Oregon DL DeForest Buckner. But in the final days leading up to the draft, Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley has emerged as a serious candidate. 

The Stanley-Chargers rumors have popped up in the past day, with both Matt Miller of Bleacher Report and Mike Silver of reporting it could happen. Below, we've embedded the tweets from both in chronological order. 

Miller quickly said he'd heard similar things as Silver.

And finally, Miller reported today that he thinks the Chargers will take Stanley.

The Chargers taking Stanley over Tunsil would be a major surprise, as nearly every mock draft so far had pegged Tunsil as the first OT off the board. The Chargers could move down and still potentially land Stanley, but the trade talks have died down in recent days regarding the No. 3 overall pick. And of course, there's the chance this all just smoke leading up to the start of the draft Thursday night.
