Chargers spent time with Clemson S K’Von Wallace

The former Tigers safety is one of the top nickel defenders in the class.

Justin Melo of The Draft Wire has reported that safety K’Von Wallace out of Clemson has, in some capacity, met with all 32 NFL clubs at this point. Of course, that means he has spent time with the Chargers but we are still unaware if that was in a formal meeting at the combine or just a passing conversation.

The 5’11, 206-pound defender is one of the most accomplished players in this draft class. He spent a lot of time as the Tigers’ nickel defender this past season but NFL Network’s Lance Zierlein believes he is at his best as a box defender who can “let it rip” near the line of scrimmage.

At the combine, Wallace was one of the more explosive players at the safety position. He posted a 4.53 in the forty, 38 inches in the vertical jump, and an 11’1 mark in the broad jump.
