Round 6, Pick 186: EDGE Jonathan Garvin, Miami FL.
The LA Chargers boast one of, if not the best defensive end one-two punches in Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. They’re both phenomenal and can be moved anywhere along the interior of the defensive line in pass-rush scenarios. Both Ingram and Bosa are perennial candidates for the Pro Bowl. Isaac Rochell is another player that can contribute at defensive end to some degree.
In the NFL, you can never have too many pass rushers. In a division like the AFC West, that is even more true. The more you can get after and harass a quarterback like Patrick Mahomes, the better. With the elite players that the Chargers have at that position, they have the ability to spend a late-round pick on a raw player that has some real upside.
Enter Jonathan Garvin. Garvin has the potential to be a pass-rushing specialist in Bradley’s defense. He is explosive off the snap and has some bend to him. Learning from his peers in a situation like this could really help him develop into a more complete player. If he continues to work in the weight room, he could be a nice complimentary piece.
Much like a lot of players at this point in the draft, his motor is a question. If the coaching staff can get him to flip the switch and keep it on this could work out well for the team. If not, he probably wouldn’t be on the team for long.
