SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Friday 6:45 p.m. — The San Diego Chargers selected C Max Tuerk of USC during round 3 of the 2016 NFL drafts.

5:30 p.m. — The San Diego Chargers selected TE Hunter Henry from Arkansas during round 2 of the 2016 NFL drafts.

Thursday 5:30 p.m. — The San Diego Chargers selected Ohio State DE Joey Bosa during round 1 of the 2016 NFL drafts.

10 a.m. — The NFL draft begins Thursday in Chicago and the San Diego Chargers are scheduled to pick third.

Although the order is a mystery, the teams selecting ahead of the Chargers—the Los Angeles Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles—are expected to choose quarterbacks Jared Goff of Cal and Carson Wentz of North Dakota State.

General manager Tom Telesco could decide to shore up an ineffective offensive line by selecting tackles Ronnie Stanley of Notre Dame or Laremy Tunsil of Mississippi, or strengthen the pass rush by taking either DeForest Buckner of Oregon or Joey Bosa of Ohio State.

Also a possibility is Jalen Ramsey, a defensive back from Florida State who is projected to shine at cornerback or safety.

Telesco's other option would be to trade out of the No. 3 spot, thereby obtaining established players or accumulating more draft picks from another team.

The Chargers have invited season ticket holders to join them for a draft day party beginning at 4 p.m. at SeaWorld San Diego. Fans will watch the first round at Shamu Stadium.

Rounds two and three are Friday, with the last three rounds Saturday.
