Draft prospects the Chargers should pray don’t end up on AFC West foes

Las Vegas Raiders: Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah
The Las Vegas Raiders have several roster needs heading into the 2021 season, mostly on the defensive side of the ball. The Raiders’ defense was their downfall last season and the team brought in former Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley to help fix the problem.
Good luck with that. Bradley has a solid defensive scheme but once you break that scheme he does not adjust. We saw it happen time and time again in Los Angeles.

The most exciting defensive draft prospect that the Raiders could select with the 17th overall pick is Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. The Raiders could either go with Owusu-Koramoah or an offensive tackle. The LA Chargers should root for the tackle.
Owusu-Koramoah is someone who would be so fun on the Chargers but is not going to be selected. He played linebacker at Notre Dame but is likely going to transition to safety at the NFL level. Regardless, he is an uber-athletic, versatile positionless defensive player that would give the Raiders a massive upgrade on the defensive side of the football.
While there could be concerns about him not having a set position, there are certain defensive prospects that you just know are going to be successful at the next level. Owusu-Koramoah is one of those players.
