Pass on the interior of the defensive line…again
Don’t panic, and here’s why: IDL still has the most depth of any position in this year’s class. Tillery and Simmons are likely going to be gone, as will projected second-round prospect Dre’Mont Jones, so most any player remaining grades out as a third-rounder and would be a reach at this spot. There will be more guys later on that can be had without reaching. Telesco has also never invested more than a third round pick on a defensive tackle (Justin Jones in 2018), so betting money says he may wait and take advantage of the draft depth to get his defensive plug.
Take a safety
I love Delaware’s Nasir Adderley, but still believe the team opts for an offensive lineman with their first pick. Instead, the Chargers should have a number of quality second-round defensive back talent to look at. The team has already met with two possible second-round selections in Mississippi State’s Johnathan Abram and Virginia’s Juan Thornhill. There’s a chance that both, along with other safety options, are gone before the Chargers have a chance to select them. For what it’s worth, Telesco has moved up twice in the second round before.
A safety pick here would be an easy call for the Chargers, filling a second of at the very least three holes in the roster.
