Chargers Fan Vote: Final Four

Dalton Risner (OL) vs Dexter Lawrence (IDL)

Winner: Risner (52 percent)

This one could not have been any closer, with Lawrence actually taking an early lead before Risner pulled away in the final hours to advance to the next round. There is a great chance that the Chargers will have the opportunity to choose between these two when their time to draft begins, and fans will clearly be split between who to take. Whether Risner or Lawrence, the Chargers making any move in the trenches signifies a great addition to the roster.

Deionte Thompson (S) vs Christian Wilkins (IDL)

Winner: Wilkins (85 percent)

Thompson made it further than expected, but his time as a surprise fan-favorite pick is immediately cut short by the defensive lineman from Clemson. Trench picks reign supreme once more, and Wilkins advances to the Finals.

Chargers Fan Vote: The Finals!

Dalton Risner (OL) vs Christian Wilkins (IDL)

Winner: Wilkins (68 percent)

Having gone through Tillery and Lawrence, Risner would likely have won the Finals had he not been going through Wilkins, who may not even be there at No. 28. Nevertheless, the talented and high-character defensive tackle wins the Finals, remaining a highly regarded favorite among fans throughout the entire voting process.

Christian Wilkins is officially the fan-favorite player to be taken in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The need on both the offensive and defensive line pushed many trench players into the later rounds of this voting process, and the opportunity to take Wilkins, who may be the most all-around talented of all 16 choices, was just too rich for fans to pass up. Who would you select at No. 28 out of all these options? Comment below!
