With the 191st overall pick, the LA Chargers select Myles Jones, CB, Texas A&M

The double-dip at the cornerback position and rightfully so. The cornerbacks are not getting any younger on the Chargers and getting depth at the position, especially seeing how this season is going, is something that the team should prioritize.

The Chargers are not going to get anyone that reinvents the wheel in the sixth round of the draft but they do get a big six-foot-four cornerback from Texas A&M in Myles Jones. Not only does he have height, but he has elite prospect wingspan to go with average-at-worst speed.

He might present some problems in man-to-man coverage as he learns the NFL way, but in the Chargers’ zone coverage, Jones would be an excellent cornerback to bring in during nickel and dime packages.

With the 235 overall pick, the LA Chargers select Glen Logan, DE, LSU

This is the third position that the LA Chargers are double-dipping in and it is merely for depth purposes. Right now, Uchenna Nwosu is the only designated depth edge rusher and the Chargers would simply be adding another depth option that would probably be sent to the practice squad next season.

I always like getting a prospect from a top program like LSU late in the draft as they are already more used to an NFL-caliber football team/system. For that reason, Logan was the pick.
