With the 159th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Dominique Robinson, EDGE, Miami (Ohio)

The Chargers do not land an edge rusher until the fifth round, indicating that the team is probably going to need to re-sign Uchenna Nwosu or bring in a replacement before the draft. Letting Nwosu walk and replacing him with a fifth-round pick would be less than ideal, even with Chris Rumph on the roster.

Robinson helps add depth on the edge and will take some time to become an impact player on defense. His ceiling as an edge rusher is very exciting because of his explosiveness, but he needs to refine the technique in his game. He can help on special teams while he hones his craft as an outside linebacker.

With the 193rd pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Pierre Strong Jr, RB, South Dakota State

It may not be a popular thing to take another late-round running back but with four extra picks in the final two rounds the Chargers should be adding depth to the running back room and hoping that the third time is the charge. The team probably needs to bring in two running backs (one in the draft, a cheap one in free agency) as the Bolts can't trust Joshua Kelley or Larry Rountree to be any better than they have been.

Pierre Strong Jr. is an interesting running back prospect who put up monster numbers at South Dakota State last season. Strong carried the ball 240 times for 1,673 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns.

With the 214th pick in this LA Chargers mock draft, the Bolts select Damarion Williams, CB, Houston

Even though the Chargers drafted a corner in the second round (and probably signed 1-2 in free agency) they could still take another corner later in the draft. The entire emphasis of Staley's defense is building out the depth of the secondary and with Williams the Chargers would be getting a depth option at slot corner to help Asante Samuel Jr.
