Mark Barron may now have San Diego looking to trade up for him.
Mark Barron has suddenly become the hot property in the NFL draft. The consensus of the most recent mock drafts is that he is the target of the Dallas Cowboys. The New England Patriots have started making noise about moving ahead of Dallas to take him. And now, the San Diego Chargers are looking into trading up for him as well, according to Pro Football Talk.
Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego reports that the Chargers love Barron enough that they have discussed engineering a trade to acquire him.
With the 18th pick in the first round, the Chargers will almost certainly not be able to take Barron without a trade. Many mock drafts, from Evan Silva's to Greg Cosell's to Peter King's, have the Cowboys taking Barron at No. 14. So if the Chargers want to move up and take Barron, they'll at the very least need to move up to No. 13.
The information comes from a tweet, which is the new source for breaking information about the draft.
