The Chargers went local with their third-round pick, taking San Diego State WR Vincent Brown with the 82nd overall pick. It could make help ease Brown's transition to the pros, but it remains to be seen how often he'll actually see the field.

Brown's playing time could depend on what happens in free-agency with Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd. Jackson was franchised, but Floyd could be an unrestricted free agent depending on the result of the labor situation. It's unlikely, but it would not be a total shock to see Brown as one of QB Philip Rivers' top targets come Week One of the season.

The rookie is a good route runner and has dependable hands, which will help his fantasy value. While TE Antonio Gates is always going to be the go-to guy in the San Diego attack, the Chargers love to spread the ball around, and Brown could be a surprise star in the city he's played in the last four years.
