With the 118th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State

Whether or not the LA Chargers draft a wide receiver is up in the air. On one hand, it does not hurt to have as many receivers as possible and the team could be losing Mike Williams after the season. On the other hand, the Bolts drafted two wide receivers last year who haven’t really gotten their own fair shake yet.

Personally, I think the Chargers will draft a receiver if they plan on cutting or trading Mike Williams. If Williams is around, I think the Bolts wait one more year to get a receiver in a premier draft position, but that is just me.

Tylan Wallace is a solid option if the team decides to draft a receiver this early in the draft. While he is not a direct Mike Williams comp, he is someone who does really well in making contested catches and was a big vertical threat for Oklahoma State.

Computer grade: C

With the 158th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Javian Hawkins, RB, Louisville

Javian Hawkins put up monster numbers for Louisville and the LA Chargers certainly could use another running back on the roster. Thus, Hawkins is seemingly a good fit, right?

Well, not so much.

Who else had great college numbers and came into the league and was terrible in his rookie season? Joshua Kelley. Who was drafted far before they should have been drafted with other roster needs present? Joshua Kelley again.

This is the same situation. I am all for the team drafting a running back, but do it with the Tennessee Titans’ sixth-round pick or the team’s seventh-round pick. Drafting a running back this early is a waste of capital, especially when they are going to start training camp as the RB4.

Computer grade: F
