After missing out on the playoffs with a 9-8 record, the Los Angeles Chargers are set to make their first pick in the NFL Draft with the 17th overall pick. 2018 was the last time LA drafted with the 17th overall pick and they'll be hoping to re-create the success they had back then when they drafted Florida State safety, Derwin James.

The Chargers have lots of needs to address this offseason and should be able to accomplish them with their $62 million in cap space and projected 10 draft picks. However, having the resources available to acquire these talents means nothing, making the proper selections and signings is all that matters.

There's no doubt that addressing the run defense must be the Chargers' number one objective heading into this offseason, however, I believe that selecting Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis with the 17th pick is not the direction to head. Davis is a favorite amongst Chargers fans online, and many have been lobbying for him to be the pick if he's there on the board.

There are multiple reasons why Jordan Davis shouldn't be the Chargers pick at 17.

In this article, I'll give you three reasons as to why Davis is not the selection Chargers GM Tom Telesco should make and I'll instead tell you what position the Chargers should be focusing on with this pick.
