Fifth round, No. 166 overall: Daylon Mack, DT, Texas A&M
The Chargers need help in the trenches, that was stated early on here and really is no secret. Also, remember that the team has just three defensive tackles on the roster?
That’s why I don’t mess around in this mock with looking at undrafted free agents or players that are cut by other teams. Instead, I have the Chargers doubling up at the defensive tackle spot with their second in this draft.
At 6-foot-1 and 336 pounds, Mack has the size to be a monster in the middle of a defensive front. He is able to eat double teams and do exactly what a prototypical nose tackle is supposed to do. He also showed a great response late in the year for the Aggies after his play started to dip and had a great week in preparation for the East-West Shrine Game.
The Chargers need to add to the defensive line and at this stage of the draft, a guy like Mack could present a ton of value.
