With the 236th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Ellis Brooks, LB, Penn State

Ellis Brooks is a bit undersized for a linebacker in today's NFL and if he was more athletic then he would be one of the most exciting prospects at the position. When it comes to his football IQ in diagnosing plays and knowing his role in coverage, he was fantastic.

That lack of athleticism and size may ultimately limit him in the NFL but because of his football IQ, Brooks has a relatively easy-to-predict floor. Brooks could come in and be a quality member on special teams while being LB4.

With the 254th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Ben Brown, IOL, Ole Miss

The Chargers have not drafted a guard yet in this mock draft so we are assuming that the team uses some of the cap space it has remaining on either re-signing Oday Aboushi or finding another quality starting guard.

The team still needs depth and they get that in the seventh round in Ben Brown, who mostly played guard for Ole Miss but also has experience at tackle and center. With Scott Quessenberry leaving LA, the team could draft Brown with the intent of developing him into a backup center.

With the 255th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Jeremiah Moon, EDGE, Florida

With the addition of DeMarvin Leal, the LA Chargers did not need to draft a backup edge as high in the 2022 NFL Draft. Chris Rumph and Emeke Egbule provide depth and if the Bolts are really concerned they have the cap space to sign a cheap rotational veteran.

The team still adds depth to the position in Jeremiah Moon, who would be a developmental edge-rusher. More importantly, Moon is someone with a skill set that should translate well to special teams, which is one of the main reasons why he is picked with the team's last selection.
