Round 3, Pick 7: Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin

Although the Los Angeles Chargers have Mike Pouncey starting at center with Scott Quessenberry being a suitable backup, in trading with the New York Jets, the team can afford to select a long-term option in the third round in Tyler Biadasz.

Biadasz is one of the best center prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft, and while he has some holes, he would be a great third-round selection to task with being the team’s long-term center.

He was a three-year starter with Wisconsin and showed that he is more than capable blocking in the running game and creating holes. His biggest concern is in pass blocking against overpowering defensive tackles, something that will develop with time in the league.

Round 3, Pick 15: Harrison Bryant, TE, Florida Atlantic

Harrison Bryant is the one person that has been in every single one of mock drafts this offseason, so it is quite clear that I really like his potential.

Even though the Chargers franchise-tagged Hunter Henry, the team should be inclined to take a tight end in the 2020 NFL Draft as a cushion not only for Henry potentially leaving after the year, but as a better pass-catching second tight end over Virgil Green.

Bryant is someone who has a massive ceiling. He was a great run-blocker in college and was a great route runner that had the physicality to match up against linebackers in coverage and the speed to hold his own against corners.

Byrant is not someone who is just a rotational tight end. If Henry were to leave, he is someone who I would trust to be the team’s primary option at the tight end position in the future.
