The entire Chargers fan base waited and watched through the entire second day of the NFL draft as every other team in the league made their selections during the rounds viewed to have the most value by a long shot this year. Offensive tackles, wide receivers, and other positions of need got a lot smaller and Tom Telesco will have to work some of that GM black magic to get the most of the team’s pick today.
At the top of the fourth, the strongest positions still available are cornerback and offensive tackle. Amik Robertson and Bryce Hall are both big-time players in the secondary that could make impacts with the Chargers’ Jack Boyz. Left tackles Prince Tega Wanogho and Ben Bartch are both better than Trey Pipkins was this time last year. I would be very content with any of these four picks at the top of the fourth.
When it comes to rounds 5-7, I would hope TT continues to hit on guys with elite athletic profiles. If you aren’t getting the cream of the crop anymore, take those with the highest upsides. It’s an easy way to play the odds in your favor.
I hope you all are as excited as I am to get this day rolling. Have fun, stay safe, and enjoy day three!
