Todd McShay's 2018 NFL Mock Draft 2.0 - Todd McShay (insider)
James had a disappointing season at Florida State, but he would fit perfectly in defensive coordinator Gus Bradley's scheme. James flies around the field versus the run and is a good matchup piece in the passing game. I think he'll have a better pro career than he did at FSU.

Chargers position outlook 2018: Casey Hayward proves he's elite - Eric Williams
Depending on what happens with Boston in free agency, the Chargers could be eyeing a playmaking safety at the top of the draft board. At 6-foot-3, 216 pounds, Florida State’s Derwin James certainly makes some sense. The Chargers appear to have good depth at cornerback heading into 2018, but GM Tom Telesco is always looking to build depth at the position because of its importance on defense.

How the Chip on His Shoulder Fuels Jahleel Addae - Hayley Elwood
You want it more, especially when (you watch) two teams you played against. We played against them and fought hard and were right in the game until the very end. It lets me know, and lets us know, we’re not that far. But we still have to work hard.

Los Angeles Chargers mock draft: A former Heisman in round two - Jason Reed
The Chargers are so close to breaking that glass ceiling. So much so that the 2018 NFL Draft becomes immensely important. The Chargers need to pick the right complementary pieces to go along with the already solid roster; not the easiest task.

Chargers' top positional needs going into the offseason: Kicker - Matt Pagels
Four players attempted at least one field goal this season: Younghoe Koo, Nick Novak, Travis Coons and Nick Rose. Koo and Coons were cut midseason, Novak, who was placed on injured reserve, will become an unrestricted free agent and Rose, who was claimed off waivers after signing a two-year deal with Washington, is currently on the books ($555,000) for the 2018 season.

Derwin James is exactly what the NFL needs on defense - Steve Palazzolo
When describing the best tight ends in the NFL, the phrase “too big for cornerbacks and safeties, but too quick for linebackers” is uttered often. James is a potential trump card for tight ends as he has 6-foot-3 size, but also the quicks to stick with slot receivers. That combination of size and athleticism makes James a viable option to match up with opposing tight ends in man coverage.
