With the 160th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Thomas Booker, IDL, Stanford
With their fourth pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts target the defensive line by adding IDL Thomas Booker from Stanford.
A four-year starter at Stanford, Booker is, you guessed it, an extremely versatile defensive lineman who can be disruptive in the run game and rushing the passer.
After occupying many roles in Stanford's front, Booker is capable of playing the 0-technique or 4i/5-technique in Staley's defense and could be a rotational piece as the 5th/6th defensive linemen in 2022 for the Bolts.
With the 195th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts Tyler Allgeier, RB, BYU
With their last pick inside the top-200 during this mock draft, the LA Chargers select Tyler Allgeier, a running back from BYU.
Despite the endless amount of late-round RB selections during Tom Telesco's reign, the Chargers re-visit the well for hopefully the last time and find a solid partner to Austin Ekeler. The RB2 role is becoming more and more important in the NFL, and the Chargers desperately need a solution, especially with Justin Jackson still an unsigned free agent.
At 5'10", 225 lbs, Allgeier is a power back who can be a reliable option as the power back in short-down-and-distance and goal-line scenarios. Having a player like Allgeier as a legitimate number two can lower the career-high usage rate Ekeler endured last season in Joe Lombardi's offense.
With the 214th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Amaré Barno, EDGE Virginia Tech
At pick 214, this NFL mock draft has the Bolts adding a much-needed depth rusher in the form of Amaré Barno from Virginia Tech.
With Chris Rumph and Emeke Egbule being the only depth edge rushers behind Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack, obtaining another capable edge rusher is a must for Staley's system.
An undersized EDGE rusher at just 6'4", 246 lbs, Barno has an endless motor that makes him very attractive at the pro level. Barno is an extremely quick player, running a 4.36 40-yard dash, and has a long frame which allows him to shed blockers relatively quickly.
If Barno can fill out his thin frame a bit more, he stands a great chance of being a steal at this late point in the draft.
