Per Justin Melo of The Draft Wire, the Chargers are supposedly set to meet with Louisiana offensive guard Kevin Dotson in the coming weeks. I would say “were to meet” with the team, but there hasn’t been any official word on whether or not teams are canceling individual meetings with prospects.
His pro day is still scheduled for April 1st but that day is currently within the blocked dates set by the majority of franchises as the “work from home” dates for everyone that is not incremental to the daily logistics of their teams.
Louisiana OG Kevin Dotson is the highest ranked player on my board that wasn't invited to the combine.— Justin M (@JustinM_NFL) March 8, 2020
He's a popular guy. He has private visits set up with the #Steelers, #Seahawks, #Saints, #Vikings and #Chargers. His Pro Day is April 1st.
In 2019, Dotson was named to the Associated Press First-Team All-American team, becoming the second player in program history to earn a spot on an an AP All-American team. He played in 53 games during his four-year career, including 51-straight starts which was the longest-active streak for an offensive linemen. At 6’4 and 310 pounds, Dotson is what the Chargers have been hurting for along the front five, and that’s someone who is durable, reliable, and available.
In the coming days, with all collegiate tournaments and other athletic events canceled for the foreseeable future, I wouldn’t be surprised to see individual workouts start to hit the deck. The final pro day on the NFL’s schedule was to be Tua Tagovailoa’s personal workout on April 9th but there’s really good chance things will not have blown over by then.
