With their very next pick, the Chargers select Smith's teammate Mekhi Wingo, bringing them back together in Los Angeles as the potential future of this interior line. Wingo is much smaller, listed at 6-foot-1, 295 pounds. But, he's explosive off the line of scrimmage.

As a pass rusher, he can be quite disruptive. If he's double-teamed, that's where he might find trouble. However, if he's one-on-one, Wingo can, at the very least, be a rotational player for the Chargers with the potential to become a starter down the line.

Back to the Big Ten, where Harbaugh is most familiar. The Chargers go with Ohio State linebacker Steele Chambers in the sixth round. The Buckeye backer is about six feet tall, weighing roughly 225 pounds. He played running back in the past, so he's great at diagnosing plays in the run game. His vision stands out in that area, especially.

Chambers begins as a backup who has the chance to compete for starter's reps in the near future, but his experience and production in the Big Ten could be an accelerator.
