With the 118th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Tyler Shelvin, DT, LSU

The LA Chargers already added depth to the defensive line with Rousseau and they complete the position group with defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin.

Linval Joseph is one year older and only has one more year under contract and this is a make or break year for Jerry Tillery. Even if Tillery is better, he still does not project to be that great against the run and adding a depth run-stuffer could go a long way for early downs and the future once Joseph leaves.

That is what the team gets in Tyler Shelvin. Shelvin is one of the best run-stuffing defensive tackle prospects in the draft and while he is rather one-dimensional, that one dimension really helps LA.

With the 159th overall pick, the LA Chargers select Caden Sterns, S, Texas

The Chargers could pick a safety earlier in the 2021 NFL Draft but it appears as if Brandon Staley is excited to get his hands on Nasir Adderley and coach him up, so it might not be until day three that we see a safety selection.

This is the biggest wild-card position on the entire roster in my opinion. They could pick a safety in the fifth round or the second round.

Here, the Chargers get a developmental safety in Caden Sterns that projects to be a solid option as a split-zone safety. While he needs to work on his run defense and strength (things that will come in the NFL), he showcased the ability to play both zone and man coverage in college.
