With the 220th pick, Steven Haglund selects:
“While his teammate Robert Hunt stole the show last year, Kevin Dotson was very good in his own right. Dotson is a powerful and stout lineman who strongly works on the interior. Dotson has his weaknesses and isn’t the most nimble athlete but he makes up for it with his functional strength.
His best skill is working at the point of attack in the run game. Plain and simple he is a people mover, ask him to execute a double team to create a running lane and he’s your man. He’ll struggle with the faster interior defensive linemen in pass protection but he has a strong anchor and violent punch that he uses to his advantage.
As a seventh-round pick he’s as safe as it gets. With Mike Pouncey’s health up in the air, the Chargers do need to add to the interior and Dotson would be a good addition. He has even met with the team during the pre-draft process.”
This draft was pretty offensively heavy for most picks, but it’s reasonable to expect the LA Chargers to draft some key offensive skill players early, especially if they draft a quarterback. Faustino drafting Love with the sixth pick was a tone-setter for the rest of the draft, as Cleveland, Pittman, and Moss in the next few rounds could supplement the offense with him for the next decade.
Hand is a solid zone cornerback who can learn under Hayward and Harris. Finally, Parkinson and Dotson can really boost depth down the roster.
