COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) Anthony Lynn knows that sometimes the best players on the Chargers draft board will not always correspond to his team's immediate needs.
The Chargers coach told the story during the combine about his first year with the Chargers in 2017 when he said the team needed help on defense. The Chargers' first three selections ended up being offensive players because they were the best players.
"I hate going into a draft thinking that I need this, I need that. I want to take the best player. You give us the best players as a coaching staff (and) it's our job to make them fit," Lynn said.
