Bubba Bolden, S Miami

The third and final player we'll take a look at in this article is Miami Hurricanes safety Bubba Bolden. Bolden was a highly-touted recruit coming out of high school, initially committing to and playing for USC before transferring to Miami in 2019.

An athletic freak, Bolden operates mainly as a free safety who can be rangy in coverage but can also provide physicality in the run game when he moves down into the box.

The Las Vegas, Nevada native has done an excellent job at the collegiate level of shutting down opposing tight ends, a trait that is highly sought after in the NFL and is something that would certainly be needed in the AFC West.

At 6'3", 200 lbs, Bolden doesn't have the elite talent like Derwin James, but has similar abilities that would make him the perfect backup for the Chargers' jack-of-all-trades freak.

Brandon Staley stressed wanting to add talent to the secondary in the offseason, and drafting a player like Bubba Bolden can go a long way towards achieving that wish.
