3. Cam Taylor-Britt, Cornerback Nebsraka 

Nebraska cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt has the sort of ability that could make him an instant starter for this Chargers secondary. With experience at both safety and cornerback, he brings a versatility that many other prospects don't. He could hold his own at each spot and could be there for much-needed depth. 

While at Nebraska, Taylor-Britt was a three-year starter. Over the last three seasons, he recorded 128 tackles, nine tackles for loss, 27 defended passes, and six interceptions. 

Taylor-Britt has made a name for himself for being one of the hardest-hitting players in football. He finds the ball and makes a play, regardless of where it is on the field. At 5-11 and 207 pounds, he has the sort of size and strength that teams look for in a cornerback. 

The biggest issues with Tylor-Britt’s game come from a technical standpoint. He has struggled in coverage occasionally and can sometimes seem lost on defense. Newly acquired cornerback JC Jackson could play a large role in the development of Taylor-Britt, especially in the areas in which he has struggled.

Given that Taylor-Britt is properly coached and allowed to work on defense, there's no reason to believe he can't become a great player somewhere in the secondary. Between his speed and size, he could step in wherever the Chargers need him.
