With the 200th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Joshua Ross, LB, Michigan
The LA Chargers don’t desperately need a linebacker in this draft but they get a good one in Joshua Ross. Ross has NFL size and is extremely athletic, and most importantly, is versatile.
Ross can line up in multiple areas on the defense and the Chargers could do some really fun things in the future with Ross and Kenneth Murray next to each other, assuming Ross progresses.
And at the very least, the Chargers would get a good special teams player, which this team needs.
With the 206th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Tony Poljan, TE, Virginia
This is a bit of a reach for Tony Poljan but with a second sixth-round pick the Chargers might as well take potential offensive sleepers with a high ceiling.
Poljan is six-foot-seven, giving the team two monster tight ends. More importantly, though, Poljan showed really promising potential as a blocking specialist after, ironically, converting from quarterback to tight end.
That is what the team needs with Virgil Green likely leaving.
With the 235th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Gerrid Doaks, RB, Cincinnati
I love Gerrid Doaks as a seventh-round running back for the Bolts. I watched a good amount of film on Doaks and other potential seventh-round picks recently and Doaks by far was the most exciting.
Doaks is a big running back with surprisingly fast speed. He doesn’t have elite acceleration but once he gets to the second level he is almost impossible to stop.
More importantly, Doaks is a really good pass defender and was used with great success in check and release plays at Cincinnati. That is something that the Chargers could get extremely creative with in two running back formations with Doaks and the other backs on the roster.
