Finally, let’s take a look out who the Chargers can target in the first three rounds.
First Round: Vita Vea, DT, Washington
Vea will be an imposing force for any offensive lineman. He is very capable of taking on double and triple teams and easily blows past weaker lineman. He practically lived in the backfield and was impossible to move. His best fit is going to be as a 1-technique (nose tackle) which would fit perfectly in the Chargers’ scheme. He’s a technician in the run game and bats down a lot of passes and has potential to beat lineman on passing plays. The Chargers can get a steal at pick No. 17.
Second Round: Harold Landry, LB, Boston College
Although Landry may not appear as a fit considering he played outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, he dropped into coverage often and looked comfortable. He has the ability to play defensive end in a 4-3 scheme, and in my opinion could make the transition to a linebacker in a 4-3 scheme. He is a versatile player with raw talent and natural instincts. But, Landry moved down the draft board as he was injured in his senior season. Landry is an elite pass rusher and excels in the run game as well.
Third Round: Isaiah Wynn, OG/C, Georgia
The Chargers need depth along the offensive line. The line could shake up in a lot of ways but it’s necessary to revamp the interior. With hopefully the addition of a guard in free agency, the Chargers can add on and get someone as versatile as Wynn in the third round. Wynn is consistent in the running and passing game and can play guard and center.
These are just some of the ways the Chargers can put themselves in a prime position to succeed next year. These are some guys I’d like the Chargers to go after. What do you think?
