Chargers second-round selection: Darryl Williams, guard, Mississippi State
The future for Lamp is up in the air, Dan Feeney has struggled without Okung in the game, and Michael Schofield is a free agent after this season. The interior of this offensive line, save for Scott Quessenberry, is very much in shambles. Offensive tackle was addressed in the first, so now is the time to add to the interior.
Darryl Williams is the definition of high motor, and a good comp for him would actually have to be offensive tackle Orlando Brown of the Baltimore Ravens. Not the most impressive athlete, but he gets the job done. Better than done. Williams is a blast to watch once the ball is snapped, as he treats every moment of every play like he is fighting for air.
Something Lamp did really well this season was looking for work once his gap was empty, and Williams brings the same ability to the table.
Williams would pair well with either Lamp or Feeney on the interior line, and it would help to have him next to a guy like Leatherwood and Quessenberry. With this selection, you’re looking at an offensive line setup of Okung, Lamp/Feeney, Quessenberry, Williams, Leatherwood. A big difference from what the Chargers had going into the 2019 season, and a lineup that could handle anything thrown at them.
Can’t stress this enough, but if you give Rivers an interior offensive lineman such as Williams, you are looking at a much calmer Rivers in 2020, and it is much needed based on his play this year.
The Chargers must protect their veteran quarterback at all costs.
