Notre Dame players the LA Chargers could draft: Tommy Tremble

With the departure of Hunter Henry, the tight end position will need to be filled or at the very least, given some depth. Tommy Tremble would bring an element to the group that was lost with Henry’s departure.

If you look at Tremble’s stats, it may not seem very promising to take him. He only has two college seasons under his belt. He had four receiving touchdowns in his first year, but none in his second year. Tremble’s first season saw him earn 183 yards, which he would improve his final season by earning 218 yards.

The stats definitely don’t stand out for Tremble, but a key part of his game is his pass-blocking ability. With losing Hunter Henry, they lost a big pass blocker. Drafting Tremble would give the Chargers the pass-blocking tight end they need. Plus, with Tommy turning 21 in June, they have a young piece that can evolve over the seasons.

I could see the Chargers making this selection in the later rounds. Tremble wouldn’t come in right away and fix the Chargers tight end problem, but he sure could add some depth to that young position, and add an element they need from the position.
