Los Angeles Chargers Select DT Justin Jones

New, comments
NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

With the 84th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Chargers select NC State defensive tackle, Justin Jones. He is strong and holds up well at the point of attack. This is the Chargers trying to improve their run defense. He plays with good pad level and while he does not necessarily stand out in a big way, he is able to do his job. Also, in fairness, it is a little difficult to stand out when you are playing next to the talent he had next to him on the line at NC State.

Jones did not test particularly well and he is a little on the short side, but he does have decent bulk. This is not the most exciting pick, but it is also not terribly objectionable. At the end of the day, this pick fills a hole.

How do you feel about this pick? Let us know in the comments.
