NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The 2018 NFL Draft's most versatile offensive linemen - Michael Renner
Wynn was solid those first two seasons, with 83.9 and 81.9 overall grades in 2015 and 2016, respectively. He didn’t take his game to the next level, though, until this past season when he posted an 88.0 overall grade and allowed only five pressures all season long. The leap has some NFL teams reportedly still willing to try him at tackle despite measuring in at 6-foot-3 with 33 3/8 inch arms at the combine.

Mailbag: The Chargers' Secret Draft Weapon - Ricky Henne
The Bolts currently have 61 players on the roster with 24 hours to go until the draft starts. If they make no trades over the three-day span, they'll select seven players, meaning the Chargers are primed to add 22 players as undrafted free agents. If you’re a betting man, it’s safe to assume one of them will make an impact in 2018.

Jaylen Watkins Set to Make Bolts' Loaded Secondary Even Stronger - Ricky Henne
“The secondary, and seeing their pass defense last year (was impressive),” he said. “Just the way they played and their pass rush, I just feel like they have something good going…Keenan (Allen) did really well. Obviously, Philip (Rivers) did a great job. Hunter Henry got in the end zone. Just seeing the guys compete. They competed and had it at the end of the game. All you can ask for is a chance to win at the end of the game.”

Why Rashaan Evans makes sense for Chargers at No. 17 - Eric Williams
"Especially early I think the linebacker group," the Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator told reporters Monday. "Sometimes you look at the linebackers and you feel like there's a couple that fit your scheme, or that intrigue you. And I think this year, especially in the early rounds, it seems like a good group of linebackers."

Drafting a quarterback remains a possibility for Chargers - Eric Williams
"We scout them all, so we don't just spend all of our time on first-round quarterbacks," Telesco said. "The same amount of time that goes into those first-round guys also goes into those guys that will go in the third, four, fifth or sixth rounds.

Hunter Henry is Primed for a Breakout Season - John Paulsen
Gates played a minor role as a rookie and then blew up in his second season, garnering 114 targets for a receiver-deprived Chargers offense (WR Eric Parker was second on the team in targets with 71!). Gates caught 81 passes for 964 yards and 13 touchdowns that year. Even with Gates’ monster season, Henry’s numbers through two years are very respectable in comparison. Unsurprisingly, he didn’t get as much volume as Gates did—in large part to the fact Gates was still on the roster—but he posted a slightly better Yards Per Reception, Catch % and Fantasy Points Per Target. This bodes well.
