With the 236th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Mykael Wright, CB, Oregon

Just because the Chargers drafted a cornerback in the first round of the draft does not mean that the team won't take another, especially with so many compensatory picks in the later rounds. In Mykael Wright, the Chargers are hoping to get depth at the slot to backup Asante Samuel Jr. and Trent McDuffie, who could play some in the slot.

With the 254th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Christopher Allen, EDGE, Alabama

The Chargers are looking for special teams value this late in the draft and Christopher Allen could help provide depth in that regard. As far as his role in the defense, Allen has the makings of being a developmental edge-rusher who is best fit to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Because of the scheme fit and his pedigree from Alabama, he makes sense as a late-round pick.

With the 255th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Smoke Monday, S, Auburn

Outside of having perhaps the best name in the entire draft class, Smoke Monday is another player who could add special teams depth to the Bolts. As a defensive player, Monday can play some man coverage at the safety position and will be better in press coverage and in the box. He could blossom into a safety that eventually transitions to linebacker in the NFL.

With the 260th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Jean Delance, OL, Florida

The Chargers have met with Florida offensive lineman Jean Delance and some have the Chargers picking him much earlier in the draft. The reality is that most outlets have him as an undrafted free agent (he ranks 414th on the consensus big board) and the Chargers are not going to significantly reach for him just because there is potential interest there.

Meeting with a prospect does not guarantee that the Chargers will reach for them. Heck, the team met with 46 prospects last year and only drafted one (Asante Samuel Jr.). They get Delance on the roster with a draft pick, but he is essentially a UDFA addition.
