Third round:

Round 3, No. 71 overall: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia

In the third round, the Chargers take Bryce Hall, a cornerback out of Virginia with the 71st pick. After a year where the team was decimated by injuries, especially in the secondary, Bryce Hall would be a great selection here in round three.

Hall brings a lot of physicality and is someone who the Chargers should jump at the chance to select this late in the draft. Hall is a solid tackler and has a very physical play style.

While we were unable to watch him a lot this year due to having ankle surgery, Hall had 21 pass breakups in 2018 and ended his career at Virginia with four sacks and five interceptions. Given the need for another cornerback, the Bolts take one of the best remaining in the draft.

This draft has the Chargers addressing their biggest needs, with some very high upside players in Love and Reagor. Having Love learn for a year behind Tyrod Taylor could be great for his development as he could learn from a veteran quarterback, while he works on some of his inconsistencies.

Jalen Reagor will immediately fill the Travis Benjamin role and give the Chargers another explosive playmaker on offense.

Austin Jackson is a big-bodied tackle with good athleticism who will come in a battle for a starting tackle job against Trey Pipkins, Sam Tevi and others if they sign some in free agency.

Bryce Hall would likely start as a special teams player and would rotate in on defense in certain packages, but has the potential to become a starter very early with questions surrounding the cornerback group outside of Casey Hayward.
