The NFL experts are releasing their first mock drafts of the season. Mel Kiper shared his first mock draft earlier in the day and projected the Chargers selecting Bradley Roby. Ian Rapoport released his mock draft and here is who he had the Chargers selecting.
CB LAMARCUS JOYNER FLORIDA ST. ACC
Joyner is an undersized (5-8, 190) playmaker in the mold of Tyrann Matheiu. He lines up in the slot for the Seminoles. He has the speed, quickness and fluidity to match up in man coverage as well as the instincts to make plays as an underneath zone defender. He has outstanding ball skills and is a dynamic blitzer from the slot. He produced big plays throughout his career at Florida State.
It sure seems like the Chargers are favorites to draft a corner right now. Kiper had us taking Roby and Rapoport has us selecting Joyner. We need help at corner bad and the Chargers will be looking to add someone onto the roster. Will it be in the first round though?
