Round 2, Pick 37: CB Trevon Diggs, Alabama

If there is a definitive weak spot on the Chargers defense, its the outside CB opposite of Pro Bowler Casey Hayward. The rest of the secondary is loaded, especially with the recent signing of slot CB Chris Harris Jr.

The current option on the outside is Michael Davis, who is inconsistent, to say the very least. Bolstering the outside with a selection in the first few rounds of the draft could take the defense to another level.

One of the best options in the entire draft is Trevon Diggs. He fits what Gus Bradley loves to do defensively: he has ideal size and can excel in zone coverage. Adding him to a secondary that also includes Hayward, Harris, Derwin James, Desmond King, Rayshawn Jenkins and the talented (but unknown) Nasir Adderley would arguably catapult this secondary to the top of the league.

The Chargers could go a number of directions here, such as USC OT Austin Jackson, Baylor WR Denzel Mims, TCU WR Jalen Reagor. You could justify any of those selections, but I was more comfortable bolstering a secondary that has to play the like of the Kansas City Chiefs.
