Chargers draft EDGE Cedric Johnson with 182nd overall pick

Many are circling interior defensive line as a bigger need for the Chargers but the team is more likely to get an edge rusher. There is young talent on the inside of the defensive line while the Chargers may end up cutting ties with Khalil Mack, and a disappointing player like Chris Rumph.

Los Angeles will need depth and Cedric Johnson is a solid prospect to do that. Cedric has all the athletic tools to be a great edge rusher at the NFL level and has versatility in where he has played. With the right refining and coaching, he could blossom into a special player in year 2-4 of his career.

Chargers draft WR Isaiah Williams with 222nd overall pick

You could make the case that the Chargers should draft a WR early and they just might. Mike Williams is likely leaving and Quentin Johnston is not reliable. If the Chargers don't take Malik Nabers in the first round (or trade down), then they may end up waiting.

Isaiah Williams is a former college quarterback who would fit in nicely as a slot receiver to improve the running game. Williams is a great run blocker and would help take a lot of that run-blocking burden in the slot off of Keenan Allen.

Chargers draft S Jaylen Key with 255th overall pick

The Chargers are projected to receive a seventh-round compensatory pick thanks to the Drue Tranquill signing and they use it here on a safety from a great program in Jaylen Key. This is more a bet on the player development of Alabama, as Key could very well go undrafted this year as well.

At best, Key picks up the system quickly and can be a positive force on special teams in his rookie season.
