Rounds 2 & 3:

Second-round selection: Jeremiah Attaochu, LB, Georgia Tech

Jeremiah Attaochu was always a player that had a lot of potential but was never seemingly able to put it all together on the Los Angeles Chargers. There were several stretches were Attaochu showed signs of being capable of being an every-down back, but his career with the Chargers was spent more off the field than on the field.

After playing in 26 games in his first two seasons, Attaochu played a combined 12 and started just one in his last two years with the Chargers. His best year was his sophomore year, where he played in 15 games and started 12 for the Bolts, playing in 67 percent of the defensive snaps.

He was serviceable that season with 66 combined tackles, a forced fumble and six sacks. He never played more than 17 percent of the defensive snaps in any other season with the Bolts and was hardly used in special teams as well.

Unfortunately for the Chargers, there were some pretty big misses that were drafted closely after Attaochu.

Third-round selection: Chris Watt, G, Notre Dame

Chris Watt is not one of the Watt brothers but still had a lot of potential coming out of college. He was a great selection at the time in the third round and projected to be an impact blocker for the Chargers for years to come.

However, like most of the team’s offensive line selection, that never came to fruition. Watt played 17 games in two seasons with the Chargers, appearing in 46 and 15 percent of the snap counts. He was waived after failing a physical.
