Day three wildcards:
We know that Telesco doesn’t mind taking a shot on players from smaller schools. Enter Kindle Vildor, the feisty cover corner from Georgia Southern. Vildor is what the team thinks Mike Davis is, a talented cover corner that needs work as a tackler.
He really excels in man coverage, a skill that he showed off down in Mobile at the Senior Bowl. Unlike Davis, he does a fantastic job of getting his head around in time to make a play on the ball and he pairs that with excellent ball skills.
With Hayward and Harris in tow, taking a gamble on a high upside corner on day three of the draft makes a lot of sense. Yes, Vildor did play at a smaller school but he has the production (nine total interceptions, including one against Clemson in 2018) and talent where that should not be a concern.
Outside of one very good season from Trevor Williams, the LA Chargers have been deficient at the corner spot opposite of Casey Hayward for a while now. With the talented pieces they have in the rest of the secondary, they don’t absolutely NEED to take a corner early in this draft.
I think they should, but if they do decide to wait a player like Vildor would be an excellent option. Especially as the team reportedly wants to move to more man coverage schemes.
