3. Garrett Wilson

Garrett Wilson is my personal WR1 on the draft board as well as being several other outlets' WR1 as well. That does not mean anything, though, with the only thing that matters is how teams in the first-round grade Wilson. While I would personally pick Wilson first, there could be two receivers picked ahead of him in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Jameson Williams was expected to be the WR1 before he tore his ACL in the National Championship Game and a team may overlook that injury and simply take the receiver that they think has the highest ceiling as a pro.

Drake London is another incredibly talented receiver who offers a different outlook at the position than Wilson. Based on team need and scheme, it would not be surprising if several teams rank London ahead of Wilson in the draft process.

If those two receivers are taken before Wilson and some quarterbacks are taken early then Wilson could possibly fall to the Chargers at 17. He is definitely the receiver that the Chargers should be hoping for as he would give the team the speed that is lacking in the receiving room.

Wilson is the only receiver that I personally would take with the 17th overall pick. Wide receiver is far from being the Chargers' biggest draft need this year but with certain prospects, the team should bend the needs. Wilson is that kind of prospect.
