Round 4: Jordan Tripp
Tripp is a versatile linebacker that comes in the mold of Jarret Johnson on the outside. He isn’t going to pick up a ton of sacks, but he is going to make the plays and get all the dirty work done. He is always around the football and picked up 10 fumbles in his college career.
Round 5: Brent Urban
A big dude that can give the team some depth up front on the defensive line. Urban is a guy that can develop into a good player and good depth on the roster. He would likely win a roster spot and provide some good reps at the position for the team.
Round 6: Dri Archer
Tom Telesco did say he wanted to add some speed onto the roster. Archer was the fastest man in the combine and he would immediately step in as the return man for the Chargers. He likely could develop into something on offense like Dexter McCluster if the team gave him a shot in the slot. Just get him the ball in space and he will make something amazing happen. The kid is stupid fast and would make our special teams a threat immediately.
The team adds a couple of players to the secondary. One is a starter at the corner spot and the other can play in multiple spots around the secondary. In the secondary, the team would have Verrett, Shareece Wright, Lamarcus Joyner, Steve Williams, Richard Marshall and Marcus Gilchrist. At safety, Joyner and Marshall can get some time there with Jahleel Addae, Eric Weddle, Darrell Stuckey and Brandon Taylor.
Out at wide receiver, the team adds another threat to the offense and the team also picks up ridiculous speed at kick returner. The depth chart at the position would be Keenan Allen, Bruce Ellington, Eddie Royal, Vincent Brown, Seyi Ajirotutu, Dri Archer. Vincent Brown would have to step up in a hurry.
The depth around the roster seems to be addressed through free agency already. We just need to take the best corners and receivers available and we should be sitting pretty for the coming season.
The biggest area of need after this draft would be up front on the offensive line. Hopefully the team brings back Rich Ohrnberger and the depth will look much better up front.
