NFL: Los Angeles Chargers-OTA Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Five Fun Facts: Cortez Broughton - Hayley Elwood
Broughton loves to cook, a hobby he picked up from his mom. While he prefers southern-style food, he likes to dabble in creating different culinary varieties. “My favorite thing to cook is blackened salmon and probably some asparagus or something green on the side. I’m not a big carb person, but I leave the other dishes to my mom.” Broughton said he’d like to be a connoisseur of food some day.

A drug suspension helped lead Thomas Davis back to the NFL, and to the Chargers – Rich Hammond (The Athletic)
“No doubt. That definitely factored into it,” Davis said. “The way the season went in Carolina, I definitely don’t think I would have walked away from the game that way. I just had that feeling of still wanting to play and still being able to play. That was the biggest thing. My body said that I could still play.”

Forrest Lamp is an under-the-radar asset to the Los Angeles Chargers - Anthony Treash
More impressively, however, Lamp is perhaps one of the best offensive linemen we have seen in the PFF College era (2014 – present). When looking at every offensive tackle with at least 1,000 snaps between 2014 and 2018, Lamp ranks first in pass-blocking grade (95.9), tied for second in overall grade (94.3) and fourth in run-block grade (92.9). Moreover, Lamp’s 1.9% pressure rate allowed ranks fourth and his 3.5% negatively-graded play rate is the best by a significant margin.

Mike Tagliere’s 2019 Wide Receiver Rankings With Notes - Mike Tagliere
With Tyrell Williams taking off to the Raiders, will Allen play on the perimeter much more, or do those targets go to Travis Benjamin? My guess is that he stays in the same role, though he might have a few more targets come his way. Throughout his time in the league, Allen has been a bit more up-and-down than fantasy owners would like, but his potential increase in targets could even that out a bit. He's a fine low-end WR1 if you go RB-heavy in the first two rounds.

Los Angeles Chargers undrafted rookie spotlight: Bradford Lemmons - Travis Wakeman
Lemmons better contact Legette for all of the advice he can get because making this team, based on his previous experience, is going to be difficult if not impossible. There are currently 10 cornerbacks on the Chargers roster and if you were going to rank them from one through 10, there’s a good chance that Lemmons is No. 10 on that list.
