In honor of the upcoming draft, who makes the All-Draft team of selections made under current general manager Tom Telesco?
The Los Angeles Chargers will add seven new players to the organization in the this April, the seventh draft under current general manager Tom Telesco. 39 drafted players have been added to the team since 2013, some remaining with the team and others moving on to different franchises. Which ones make the Chargers’ All-Draft team under Telesco? Here are 11 players on offense and defense that make the cut:
Brad Sorensen, Southern Utah
Well, there wasn’t much to choose from. As the only quarterback drafted by Telesco, Sorenson makes the All-Draft team with no NFL starts or statistics.
Wide Receiver (2)
WR1: Keenan Allen, Cal
WR2: Mike Williams, Clemson
474 catches, 5,206 yards, and 38 receiving touchdowns between this duo for their careers. Allen has been one of the best route-running receivers in the league, and Williams is on his way to becoming one of the best in the league following a career year and the departure of Tyrell Williams.
Running Back (2)
RB1: Melvin Gordon, Wisconsin
RB2: Justin Jackson, Northwestern
Would have gone with Austin Ekeler for RB2, but undrafted free agents don’t count here. Gordon is the obvious choice for the lead back, and Jackson the only other running back drafted to make the roster. Both will see the field in 2019.
Offensive Line (5)
LT: Sam Tevi, Utah
LG: Dan Feeney, Indiana
C: Chris Watt, Notre Dame
RG: Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky
RT: D.J. Fluker, Alabama
Tevi is starting on the wrong side, Feeney is Pro Football Focus’ 72nd-ranked guard, Watt is a bust no longer in the league, Lamp has never seen a starting snap, and Fluker is no longer with the team. Other than that, it’s a great line!
Tight End (1)
Hunter Henry, Arkansas
Not much to pull from here, as Henry is the only tight end brought in via the draft under Telesco. Look for him to rebound in 2019.
