Good morning, Chargers fans!
This morning, we’re discussing the team’s biggest draft day needs as things stand right now at the bye week.
Six games into the 2021 season should be enough to roughly gauge all the week points of this Chargers team and give us a faint picture of how they need to draft come April. At this very moment, what would you consider to be the team’s biggest need? If the 2022 NFL Draft was tomorrow, what position — or even what player — do you believe the Chargers need to draft?
I think if you’ve been keeping up with me on Twitter, you’ve heard me pushing for a defensive tackle since the Cowboys game. One name that instantly comes to mind is DeMarvin Leal of Texas A&M. The big issue, unfortunately, is that the Bolts won’t be picking anywhere high enough land Leal. He’s arguably the top defensive lineman in the draft which immediately makes him a top-five pick.
Jordan Davis, a massive 6’6, 330-pound tackle is the next best name to keep track of. Through six weeks, he has 18 tackles, three tackles for loss, and 1.5 sacks. With that type of size, it’s easy to see why he’d be a welcomed addition to this front seven.
As a former center, have to admit...— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) October 19, 2021
