2017 NFL Draft Results: Chargers Pick Western Kentucky OG Forrest Lamp

And now Philip Rivers will have some time to throw the ball.

NCAA Football: C-USA Championship-Louisiana Tech at Western Kentucky Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

With the 38th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and the sixth pick of the second round, the Los Angeles Chargers select offensive guard Forrest Lamp out of Western Kentucky. Lamp is an excellent football player and drafting him at 38 without having to trade up is a dream. The offensive line just got way, way better. This benefits the running and passing game. And it will force a lesser player out of the starting lineup.

Philip Rivers got a red zone target yesterday and today he got someone that will help him buy the time necessary to find that target. This was the absolute best case scenario for Tom Telesco and the Los Angeles Chargers today. If you don’t love this pick, you should have your head examined.
