With the 236th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Sincere McCormick, HB, UTSA
The LA Chargers are going to have to address the running back room in some capacity as the depth behind Austin Ekeler last season was awful and is made worse with Justin Jackson being a free agent. With four picks in the seventh round, it makes sense to take another late-round running back.
The hope is that Sincere McCormick could be a better pick than Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree. With a similar build to Austin Ekeler and just under 4,000 rushing yards in three seasons, those hopes could come true.
With the 254th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Darien Butler, LB, Arizona State
At this point in the draft, the Chargers are just hoping to get depth that can also produce on the special teams side of things. Taking a linebacker in Darien Butler makes sense and on paper, Butler should be able to produce on special teams while adding linebacker depth.
With the 255th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Nick Ford, C, Utah
The LA Chargers need a new backup center after Scott Quessenberry signed with the Houston Texans. The team potentially gets that here in Nick Ford, who was the starting center for the Utah Utes and was named to the Pac-12 All-Conference first-team.
With the 260th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Tre Sterling, S, Oklahoma State
Once again, this is another selection that has special teams in mind as the second-to-last pick in the draft is not going to have a big impact on the defense.
That being said, Sterling may have been a fourth/fifth-round prospect if he did not suffer a wrist injury in the 2021 season. He definitely has the makings of being a much better prospect than typical late seventh-round picks.
