2. Daniel Faalele falls to the LA Chargers at 79

Daniel Faalele is an intriguing draft prospect that could easily go in the second round if the right team is high on him but he could also fall to the third round and somehow fall into the Chargers' laps at 79. It would take some falling for Faalele to get all the way to 79 but it is not out of the realm of possibility at all.

Faalele ranks 59th in the consensus big board as his draft stock is actually falling the closer we get to the draft. Pro Football Focus ranks Faalele even lower, ranking him as the 84th-best prospect in the draft, seemingly putting him in the Chargers' range.

Faalele is a raw right tackle who has limited years of experience playing football but it is hard to not fall in love with the ceiling that he could provide. The six-foot-eight monster of a man is not only fittingly huge to play right tackle, but he also showcases the same athleticism that the best tackles in the league possess.

If the Chargers trust in their offensive line development then they could bring Faalele in to compete with Trey Pipkins and Storm Norton for the right tackle spot. Unless I am completely wrong on my evaluation, even if he has rookie mistakes in 2022 he should be better than Pipkins was last year.

While he is raw and he is going to need help at the next level, Faalele actually did quite well at the college level, which is a hopeful sign as he seems to be a quick learner at the position.
