Chargers LAtely Ep. 30: Falcons, Fireworks, and First-round picks

Never too early to talk draft prospects in a season like this.

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

For this week’s episode of Chargers LAtely, I was once again joined by Chargers Wire editor Gavino Borquez to to help preview this week’s matchup against the 4-9 Falcons before we dove into potential targets for the Bolts in the first round of next year’s NFL draft.

This Falcons team features an explosive passing offense, but an underwhelming rushing attack. At the same time, their defense struggles to stop the pass while their rushing defense is one of the better units in the NFL.

We discussed 10 prospects that stretch across five positions, including offensive line and edge rusher. Those players are as follows:

  • EDGE Kwity Paye - Michigan
  • EDGE Gregory Rousseau - Miami
  • OT Penei Sewell - Oregon
  • OT Rashawn Slater - Northwestern
  • OT Christian Darrisaw - Virginia Tech
  • CB Caleb Farley - Virginia Tech
  • CB Patrick Surtain Jr. - Alabama
  • WR Ja’Marr Chase - LSU
  • WR Devonta Smith - Alabama
  • TE Kyle Pitts - Florida

I hope you guys enjoy!

(Note: We went long and Gavino needed to drive to work so the audio gets a bit rough near the end. Apologies for this!)
