With the 236th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Verone McKinley III, S, Oregon
With pick 236 in this mock draft, the Bolts take a depth safety in Oregon product Verone McKinley III.
Alohi Gilman and Mark Webb are the only safeties behind Derwin James and Nasir Adderley, and with Staley requiring lots of capable defensive backs in his scheme, McKinley makes lots of sense here in the 7th round.
An agile and short-area quickness player in coverage, McKinley played in a zone-heavy, two deep safety defense at Oregon, an experience that would come in handy with the Chargers.
With the 254th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Tre Turner, WR, Virginia Tech
With pick 254 in the seventh round, the LA Chargers select Tre Turner, a WR from Virginia Tech in this mock draft.
At 6'2", 190lbs, Turner provides more height to the Bolts receiving corps but is also an efficient player with the ball in his hands and in the open field. Versatile as an inside and outside receiver during his years in the ACC, Turner provides a down-the-field threat with his efficient vertical route running.
Despite being a productive college player, Turner would come in and compete for the WR4 role in the LA offense.
With the 255th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Darell Baker Jr., CB, Georgia Southern
With pick 255, the Chargers' penultimate selection in the 2022 draft, LA takes its second cornerback in Georgia Southern's Darell Baker Jr.
A very instinctual player, Baker excelled in a Cover 2 heavy-zone fit in college. As an excellent and more than willing tackler, Baker seems to make sense as a developmental slot corner who can rotate in for Asante Samuel Jr. when needed.
With the 260th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Joshua Ross, LB, Michigan
With their last pick in this mock draft, the Chargers select Michigan linebacker Joshua Ross with the 260th selection overall.
Kyzir White is still a free agent and it appears likely that he won't be back in the powder blues for 2022. Given that the LB room without White is thin and lacks talent, taking a flier on a special teams player and developmental prospect in Ross should balance out the roster a little better.
