With the 183rd overall pick, the LA Chargers select Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson

The LA Chargers do not need to take two wide receivers in the draft, especially after taking two last year, but Justyn Ross is such a good value pick this late in the draft that I simply could not pass him at 183.

Ross is slipping in the draft order because of his injury history but he is the textbook big-bodided vertical threat that could be slowly implemented into the offense and essentially replace Mike Williams’ exact role in the passing game moving forward.

If he stays healthy and is as good as he can be then the Chargers could have an elite receiver room led by Keenan Allen, Jaylen Waddle and Justyn Ross.

With the 206th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Greg Eisworth, S, Iowa State

The hope is that the LA Chargers bring back Rayshawn Jenkins but either way the team needs to add safety depth for the case of injury. The team cannot bank on Jahleel Addae moving forward.

Eisworth is a big-hitter who is raw in coverage but is very athletic and has the number one thing the Chargers love: a great character.

At the very least, because of his athleticism, leadership and tackling capabilities, Eisworth can be a really solid special teams player at the next level.

With the 226th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Jose Borregales, K, Miami

The Draft Network does not have kickers in the mock draft so we just kind of assumed that Jose Borregales would be available with the 226th overall pick. If the goal if to help Justin Herbert then the team needs a kicker who can be reliable.

Borregales has been one of the best kickers in the nation this season. He has made 18 of his 20 field goal attempts, all 35 of his extra-point attempts and is perfect within 40 yards. Not only that, but he is perfect from more than 50 this year with a long of 57.

Next. 4 Chargers at risk of becoming busts

Borregales has been Miami’s kicker for four seasons now and is a combined 6-8 from more than 50 yards out and has made 166 of 169 extra points (98.2%).
