LA Chargers: Drafting a running back before the fourth would be a mistake

The LA Chargers are going to have a different situation at running back than the team has had over the last four years. Former first-round pick Melvin Gordon has signed with the Denver Broncos, seemingly creating a need on the roster for another running back.

One of the first things that general manager Tom Telesco did this offseason was signing Austin Ekeler to a four-year, $24.5 million contract to prevent the restricted free agent from testing the market while also giving the team its starting running back for the next four seasons.
