Goff, Sewell head to Chargers in ‘Win Now' draft
In this exercise, Reuter has the Chargers selecting Goff in Round 2 and Sewell in Round 4. Here is what he has to say about those selections:
“In real life, Goff's sparkling play in the second half of the 2022 season makes the Lions think he could lead them to a playoff spot in 2023. In this exercise, the Chargers make that same bet.”
“People were quick to critique Sewell as a rookie, when he was adjusting to NFL speed and manning multiple positions. Now the 22-year-old is considered one of the league's best young linemen.”
