Round 4, Pick 112: Harrison Bryant, TE, Florida Atlantic

Tight end might not seem like a need if Hunter Henry returns but if he does return, there is a chance that he will be franchise tagged. Not only that, but the team needs to think in the long term behind Henry, as Virgil Green is in the last season of his contract.

To be completely transparent here: I am super excited about Harrison Bryant and think he could be someone who slips late in the draft and ends up being one of the best tight ends in the league in 2-3 years.

He is a great run blocker and has explosiveness off the line and great hands to be a threat in the passing game as well. I am not the only one high on Bryant, as NFL.com’s Lanze Zierlein compares him to George Kittle.

It is not a big need, but I love the prospect and this would be a good spot to take him.

Round 4, Pick 116: A.J. Dillon, RB, Boston College

If you read our late-round running backs that could be drafted article then you would recognize A.J. Dillon. Dillon is another prospect that I would love to see on the Los Angeles Chargers as he would be a great rotational running back alongside Ekeler and Justin Jackson.

Dillon is a physical runner that can run through tackles and fight for yards in the interior. He is someone that would be great in a third and short setting when the team needs 1-2 yards and as a decent pass catcher could be the ultimate decoy for the play-action pass.

His play alongside Austin Ekeler in two running back sets would be a thing of beauty and his pass blocking as a running back is great for a rookie as well.
