With the 110th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the LA Chargers select Jack Sanborn, LB, Wisconsin

Denzel Perryman is a free agent after this season and even if the Chargers do bring Perryman back the team needs more depth at the linebacker position. That is what they get by selecting Jack Sanborn.

Sanborn fits more traditionally as a MIKE, which might seem redundant with Kenneth Murray, but Sanborn is better at playing on the outside as well as dropping back into coverage. He is not a great man-to-man option, but he is athletic enough and has good enough coverage skills to survive in the zone.

Sanborn had three interceptions last season as well as three passes defended and 5.5 sacks.

With the 149th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the LA Chargers select Divine Deablo, S, Virginia Tech

The LA Chargers’ safeties have been really bad with Derwin James out. Neither Rayshawn Jenkins nor Nasir Adderley has played up to par and the depth of the position has been exposed.

Jenkins is a free agent after this season and the Chargers very well could be looking to find his replacement. The team could field a duo of Derwin James and Adderley, however, they still need depth to be successful.

That is what they get with Divine Deablo. Deablo has all the intangibles — he’s big (six-three), fast and hits hard. He is a bit green in coverage and has some holes in his game but they are all fixable with NFL coaching.
