15 Best undrafted FA signings following the 2016 NFL Draft - Sam Monson
Injuries have blighted Terrell Chestnut’s career at West Virginia, but he was the better coverage corner from West Virginia in this draft – ahead of teammate Daryl Worley, who was selected in the Round 3. Over the past two seasons Chestnut has a +10.9 coverage grade compared to Worley’s +3.2, and this past season allowed just 41.8 percent of passes thrown his way to be caught and an NFL passer rating of only 46.9. If he can hold together physically, he could be a true steal.

First look at 2016 San Diego Chargers' 90-man roster - Eric Williams
"I can't wait to get out there," Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said. "We've been staring at each other in plenty of meetings and talking to each other about it. You hear them in the weight room with the music going while we're upstairs in staff meetings and everything. We just want to get outside. We're football coaches. We want to get on the field and coach, that's what we do for a living."

San Diego Chargers' 2016 draft class: Analysis, grades, best picks, highlights - NFL Draft Insiders
We felt Bosa's best fit was as a DE in a base 4-3 scheme, but he has the size, power and versatility to line up in multiple spots along their 3-4 scheme. His best scenario may be to continue to try and bulk to line up at the 5-technique where he can help improve a 27th-ranked rush defense and provide some pass rush with his power and hands.

2016 Class Rankings - Paul Bessire
The New England Patriots, Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles all failed to add any projected starters for 2016 from this class. That means that none of their prospects grade better than the players currently at their position. On the other side of that discussion, the Browns, New York Giants, Bears, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, San Diego Chargers and Bengals each added more than one win from this draft class.

Film Study: Why Joey Bosa Will Thrive in San Diego's 3-4 Defense - Jonathan Stephanson
After allowing former strong-side defensive end Kendall Reyes to walk in free agency, Bosa will move into a clearly-defined role within San Diego’s base and sub package defense as a 5-technique on run downs, before sliding outside obvious passing situations. Bosa will rarely be asked to play 2-gaps from this alignment, instead 1-gapping or run stunting with other defensive linemen and linebackers.
