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

After selecting Wyatt Davis to be the starting right guard in 2021 the LA Chargers select his Ohio State teammate, Josh Myers, to be the starting center in 2021. The Chargers keep the band together and it would be the perfect way to rebuild this offensive line.

Myers is a prospect that does not have as high of a ceiling as Eichenberg or Davis but has a relatively high floor as well. At the very least, maybe after some rookie hiccups, the Chargers will be getting a starting-caliber center that does his job.

That is more than the Chargers had last season. Dan Feeney was not great at center and it is clear that he is not the long-term solution for the Bolts.

By trading down the LA Chargers have addressed three starting spots on the offensive line and can still select other impact prospects as well. If the team cuts Turner and signs a free-agent left guard then the offensive line would look great not just in 2021 but moving forward.

With the 97th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Trill Williams, CB, Syracuse

Quite frankly, I think the LA Chargers are going to end up with a Syracuse cornerback at some point in the 2021 NFL Draft. It will either be Trill Williams, who I personally like a bit more, or Israel Mukuamu, who I still really like and have taken in mock drafts before.

I like Williams more as a prospect because of his versatility. While he has outside corner size and speed and can definitely hold his own right away out wide in the NFL, he also has experience playing both slot corner and safety.

Telesco is someone who values versatility, especially in the secondary and Williams provides just that. Injuries are bound to happen and Williams gives depth that the team could be comfortable with at three different position groups.

When everyone is healthy, I like Williams as the CB3 behind Casey Hayward and Michael Davis (if they both return) before blossoming into a starting corner in 2022.
