The Chargers selected Florida State safety Derwin James with the 17th overall pick. Colin was in the war room when the selection was made, and footage from the team war room cam shows Colin playing a crucial role in the process.
As the video shows, while GM Tom Telesco was making the life changing call to inform James that he would be the pick, Colin can be seen furiously writing crucial details on a piece of paper before getting up and walking off screen, probably to get a jump on breaking down some high level analytics. Or maybe just to use the john.
Watch Colin doing…something in the draft room.
“Hey, I got one question for you… can you help us win a Super Bowl?”
