There were more names to add here and there, but here it is: that entire list comprises of players either still with the Chargers and making significant impact, or are starting elsewhere. That’s amazing. I’m not sure any other team can rival the kind of immense impact the Bolts’ undrafted rookies have made. Telesco should be commended for finding these players, as five of them held starting positions on offense or defense for the Chargers in 2017 and played well.

It’s a hefty, high return on value, yet low-cost list of players. It’s Telesco’s best “round”. And I can’t wait to see who emerges from the 2018 pool this season.

Going back through each draft, it’s amazing to see how much better Telesco has gotten in finding great contributors, staying patient in the draft, and having more draft “steals” than he did in years prior. The 2016 draft, I believe, saved his job.

Who is your favorite draft pick by Telesco? Am I wrong to place a round too high or too low? Let me know down below!
