8. Jerry Tillery - 28th overall, 2019 NFL Draft

Another very recent first-round pick, Chargers defensive linemen Jerry Tillery has been extremely underwhelming through his first three years in the NFL.

The Notre Dame product has struggled to find consistency in his play, and grades as one of the league's worst run defenders. When watching Chargers games, it's quite obvious that opponents direct their running game at number 99 for a majority of their run designs.

Flashes when rushing the passer are the only thing keeping him from being below Kenneth Murray on this list.

If Tillery fails to improve in 2022, then he could also find himself on the way out of LA.
