NFL: AFC Wild Card-Los Angeles Chargers at Baltimore Ravens Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Bests fits of the 2019 NFL Draft - Steve Palazzolo
An excellent fit that we pegged prior to the draft, Tillery adds a much-needed pass-rushing presence on the defensive interior for the Chargers. He tied Quinnen Williams for the top pass-rushing grade in the nation last year at 92.5, and his presence puts offenses into more of a bind with strong edge defenders Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa already on the roster. Throw in Tillery’s No. 1 grade in the draft class on stunts, and the Chargers’ front four can now bring pressure from all angles.

The fantasy fallout of each team's 2019 draft selections - Jeff Ratcliffe
We saw only one skill position selection from the Chargers this year: Easton Stick in the fifth. The former North Dakota State signal-caller isn’t a strong bet to replace Philip Rivers over the long haul and is more likely a career backup.

Most improved NFL teams in each division after the 2019 NFL Draft - Michael Renner
The Raiders may have had a bigger haul, but the Chargers added more quality in our opinion. They added two players in PFF’s top-30 (Jerry Tillery 7, Nasir Adderley 27) compared to zero for the Raiders. Both come at monstrous positions of need. Tillery should be an upgrade from Corey Liuget right out the gate, and Adderley is the perfect center field foil to Derwin James in the box.

Easton Stick: What do the Chargers have in their new QB? - Tyler Schoon
Stick is incredibly up-and-down in this game, and is at times frustrating to watch. He would be incredibly elusive, avoiding pressure in ways Rivers could never dream of, only to throw an interception on a bad throw to the sideline. He also absorbs quite a bit of contact in this game, something that earns the respect of fans and teammates but could put him on IR in the NFL. Lynn should not try to take away any of his fantastic scrambling ability, but he needs to learn to give up on a play. Except…

Mike Williams' breakout sophomore campaign is a great sign for the Los Angeles Chargers - Connor Price
Possibly one of the most exceptional signs moving forward is that when the stakes were highest, the Chargers turned to Williams to be the leading force in their offense. Williams saw 12 targets in the Chargers’ Divisional Round matchup against the New England Patriots – five more than the next most targeted receiver.

1 stat to know about every Chargers draft pick - Gavino Borquez
He is strong, lengthy, and flashes great movement skills for a player of his size. His ability to push the pocket and create disruption should be an excellent boost for a team that already has no problem getting after the quarterback led by defensive ends Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram.
