With the 106th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Joe Tyron, EDGE, Washington

Yes, it is a Justin Herbert-centric draft but we are still making some other selections as well. This is the first time in the draft where there were prospects that, even when we prioritized helping Herbert, we just could not pass on.

I think Joe Tyron is an extremely good value pick in the fourth round. He is a bit of a raw edge rushing prospect but has all of the intangibles to be really good in the NFL. Working alongside Joey Bosa, I thnk he can blossom into a special edge rusher.

With the 112th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Elijah Molden, CB, Washington

Another defensive pick, another pick with extreme value. Elijah Molden is a bit pigeon-holed into how he can help this team but he is a really good slot cornerback that can also help with punt returns as well.

This would be a good direction to go if the team re-signs Michael Davis, let’s Casey Hayward finish out his contract and hope that the regression this year is just him not being 100% and cutting Chris Harris to save money.

With the 145th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Sadarius Hutcherson, IOL, South Carolina

Back to the offensive line we go. This offensive line needs depth and that is exactly what Sadarius Hutcherson provides. He played both inside and tackle in college but is likely going to be limited to just the inside at the professional level.

He is a bit raw but at the very least he is a brute who is a better depth option than what is currently on the roster. If the Chargers re-sign Forrest Lamp then I like what the (fully healthy) offensive line would look like.

Mayfield-Lamp/Brown-Humphrey-Turner-Bulaga with Tevi-Brown/Lamp-Quessenberry-Hutcherson-Tevi/Norton is not a bad outlook whatsoever.
