With the 77th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Josh Myers, C, Ohio State

This is the final step of the offensive line rebuild, for now. The LA Chargers are going to have to replace Trai Turner and Bryan Bulaga soon but that can be put off until next offseason. With Brown, Vera-Tucker and Myers, the Chargers have enough to have a good offensive line, especially if Turner and Bulaga stay healthy.

Myers has his holes, as does any prospect in the draft, but he is the best starting center at this point in the draft and the Chargers need to bring in someone to build a rapport with Justin Herbert. Myers would start day one for the Bolts.

With the 83rd overall pick, the LA Chargers select Quincy Roche, OLB, Miami

Roche is someone who I have taken before in mock drafts and I love taking him here in the third round yet again. Roche would only be selected if the Chargers transition to a 3-4 defense, something that absolutely is possible with Brandon Staley taking over the team.

Roche is an ideal 3-4 outside linebacker that would probably start on the outside right away in LA. He has proven to be good enough in all three areas of the game (run defense, pass rush and pass coverage) to be an every-down outside linebacker in the NFL.

He is best in his pass rush, which is just fine as he is going to get plenty of great chances next to Joey Bosa. With progressions in pass coverage, Roche could be a truly special outside linebacker.

With the 97th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Israel Mukuamu, CB, South Carolina

Isreal Mukuamu is a big outside cornerback prospect (six-foot-three) that has the versatility to also play on the inside. While the coaching staff has changed, the front office has still valued versatility on the defense and Mukuamu provides just that.

Mukuamu dealt with injuries this past season, which is concerning, but he was also really good earlier in his collegiate career. It is a risky pick, but if it goes right, the Chargers could have their next great starting outside corner.
