LA Chargers Mock Draft: Team goes all offense, trades back into first round
By Jason Reed
With the 186th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the LA Chargers select: Michael Warren, RB, Cincinnati
The LA Chargers do not need a big difference-maker at running back in the 2020 NFL Draft, the team simply needs a change-of-pace back that can take some of the duties from Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson and provide a different outlook.
Of the options still available in the sixth, Michael Warren appears to be the best option. Warren is a physical runner who is limited in being an every-down back but fights for yardage and can pick up yards between the tackles.
He is not someone who is going to revolutionize the Chargers’ running game but he is a short-yardage threat that is also proficient enough in route running to contribute to the Chargers’ style of offense.
With the 220th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the LA Chargers select: Tremayne Anchrum, G, Clemson
Tremayne Anchrum was a tackle at the collegiate level but is expected to make the transition to guard in the NFL. Anchrum is built to last on an NFL offensive line and has the size and strength alone to get by on a base level as a backup guard.
Coming from one of the top schools in the nation, Anchrum is an experienced winner at the collegiate level and could surprise some when he transitions to the NFL.
He would be a backup guard in year one but if with his size and stature, there is some hidden potential there if the transition to guard goes seamlessly.
