In the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the LA Chargers select: A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson
Because of our self-imposed rules of the prospects having to be within a certain range of the LA Chargers actual pick, there is not a single offensive lineman to choose from, living us with the option to improve the receiving corps or the secondary in round two.
While the Chargers have improved the secondary this offseason in signing Chris Harris and have not done the same for the receiving corps, it still would be best for the team to draft a corner in the second round.
Casey Hayward is not getting any younger, Chris Harris is not necessarily a young player and the team needs another outside corner opposite of Hayward. They would get the perfect man for the job in A.J. Terrell.
Terrell is a long, lengthy corner that thrived in press coverage with Clemson and would be the perfect corner to man up receivers on the outside. As a number two option, Terrell could really be a lockdown corner right away for the Chargers.
He is not excellent in zone coverage and is not a ballhawk but he is not bad, either. The great thing is the Chargers don’t need him to be that, as they already have that spread around the defense elsewhere.
