The Los Angeles Chargers have endured a very entertaining and positive start to the 2022 NFL offseason.

In what has turned into an arms race in the loaded AFC and the AFC West, in particular, the Chargers have gone 'all-in' to optimize Justin Herbert and his rookie contract. The Bolts have quickly turned their roster from one that is massively flawed, into one that has the core pieces to compete for a championship.

Despite the re-signing of Mike Williams, the acquisition of Khalil Mack via trade, and the numerous free agent signings including J.C. Jackson, Sebastian Joseph-Day, Austin Johnson, and Gerald Everett, the Chargers still have lots to do when filling out their 53 man roster.

The Chargers head into the 2022 NFL Draft with 10 total selections.

These picks are just as crucial as ever, as GM Tom Telesco and head coach Brandon Staley know that hitting on these selections could be what pushes the team over the edge.

In this article we'll complete a Chargers 7-round mock draft, doing our best to turn the team's 10 picks into 10 players that can contribute to the Bolts' aspirations going forward. This simulation will be done using The Draft Network's Mock Draft Machine.
