15 Minutes: A Running Diary Inside the Chargers' Interview Room with Top Prospects - Chargers.com
Director of College Scouting Kevin Kelly: “I have empathy for the player walking into our room and seeing 10 to 15 people, like ownership of the team, the coach, the GM. He’s in the hot seat in front of me and I’m pushing personal issues. When he sits down, I try to make him feel comfortable. I want him to know we only get 60 of these, so we obviously like him a lot. He’s one of our 60, so welcome to the Chargers. I try to give some positivity on how impressive their career was in college so they don’t think it’s just like an indictment. Because if the kid’s comfortable, then they can talk.”

Ranking all 32 offensive lines from the 2017 NFL season - Zoltan Buday
Although the Chargers allowed just nine sacks, tied for the fewest in the NFL, it is a misleading stat as Philip Rivers led the league with 35 throwaways. However, the Chargers’ offensive line was slightly more effective in run-blocking as their running backs averaged 1.47 yards before contact, which was just below the NFL average of 1.56 yards before contact.

Boston was more than just a safety valve on the back end of the Chargers defense, allowing just three receptions on 12 targeted passes. He brought in an interception of a pass breakup on more than half of his targeted passes in 2017.
