Chargers move down to No. 9 after win over Raiders

Bolts still remain in the top 10.

With the Chargers getting their second-straight victory and their first in the AFC West since the end of the 2018 season, they now move to 5-9 on the season and, unfortunately, that brings with it a drop in the 2021 NFL draft order.

For the past two weeks, the Bolts sat at No. 4 but have now fallen to No. 9. That puts them just behind the 5-9 Dallas Cowboys and one spot ahead of the 5-9 Detroit Lions. There are currently six teams with a 5-9 record, ranging from the Cowboys to the Giants, so there’s tons of potential movement left to be had.

The No. 9 spot hasn’t offered a ton of success over the past decade, but there’s still two future Hall-of-Fame players amongst them.

Below are the last 10 players to be picked with the ninth-overall selection:

  • 2020: CB CJ Henderson - Jaguars
  • 2019: DT Ed Oliver - Bills
  • 2018: OT Mike McGlinchey - 49ers
  • 2017: WR John Ross - Bengals
  • 2016: OLB Leonard Floyd - Bears
  • 2015: OT Ereck Flowers - Giants
  • 2014: LB Anthony Barr - Vikings
  • 2013: CB Dee Milliner - Jets
  • 2012: LB Luke Kuechly - Panthers
  • 2011: OT Tyron Smith - Cowboys
