It's that time again where we focus on some names to keep an eye on, and discuss some names that stick out to us as watch football all day. This is so we don't have to scramble the last few weeks of the draft to learn every name. This year, when the "Tourek Williams" of the world is selected, we want you to know who he is.
This week, the 3 games we'll highlight for you are LSU against Texas A&M, Baylor against Oklahoma State, and finally UCLA against Arizona State.
LSU vs. Texas A&M
This game's total points might be over 100. It's become pretty apparent that the Chargers need another receiver, and LSU's Odell Beckham Jr would be perfect. I wrote about him here, but I doubt he gets out of the 1st round.
Arguably, as King Dunlap is set to miss yet another game, the most important position of need is left tackle. A&M has two very gifted tackles, and they both might be the two best in the country, and both better than last year's #2 pick, Luke Joeckel. I don't know where the Chargers will end up picking, but keep an eye out on right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.
Ogbuehi is a very good athlete that will make the seamless transition to left tackle in the NFL. He's great at "re-anchoring" which is very important in the NFL. His initial punch isn't the best, but his ability to recover is amazing. He might have the greatest ceiling of any tackle in the draft.
Baylor vs. Oklahoma State
Kyle's Take: Last week, I told you to watch Justin Gilbert, and all he did was take an interception for a touchdown. When I wrote about him, I was very impressed and believe he's a first round talent. On Baylor's defense, they have a redshirt sophomore by the name of Shawn Oakman, who is a very, very large man.
At 6'9 275 pounds, he is very explosive and you can he uses him arm length to his advantage. With his frame, he actually has room to put on about 15-20 pounds of muscle, which is scary. Oakman is great at converting speed to power and as of last week that's why he was leading the nation in tackles for loss. He could be a great outside linebacker for this team and really help out the pass rush.
Arizona State vs. UCLA
Chad Rinehart has been fantastic. When he plays. That's been the problem, he's been injury prone throughout his career, and on a one year deal, do the Chargers bring him back?
That's why I'll have my eye on Xavier Su'a-Filo, the left guard for UCLA. He's a perfect fit for the Chargers, he had to sub in at left tackle for a game and did a fine job, so he'd fit right into San Diego, as fans have seen this year, it's a surprise when the same starting offensive line finishes the game.
Su'a-Filo really fits the type of guard offensive line coach Joe D' favors. Powerful at the point of attack, but athletic enough to get to the second level and bury linebackers. He also shows great feet and awareness when pulling, which is an area where Clary really, really struggles at. He'll be going against another potential 1st rounder in Will Sutton. This should be a great match-up.
