Chargers draft grade for Justin Eboigbe: C

After knocking out the second day of the 2024 NFL Draft the Chargers started the third day by addressing the defensive line. With the 105th pick in the draft, Los Angeles selected Alabama defensive lineman Justin Eboigbe.

This is one of those picks that does not jump off the page and probably won't be one that'll make the "greatest steals of Joe Hortiz's tenure" article in five years. That being said, Eboigbe has all the makings of being a strong, fundamentally run-stuffing defensive lineman that is versatile along the front seven.

He may not play very much in his rookie season and his pass-rushing numbers probably won't translate well to the NFL (at least not right away). But you cannot deny his presence as a run-stuffing defensive lineman and acknowledge how that will improve the team.

Brandon Dorlus was the defensive lineman who had the higher upside with this pick, but the Chargers take the player with the higher floor who fits better.

Chargers draft grade for Tarheeb Still: C

Tarheeb Still is a slot-only cornerback who will naturally compete for starting snaps in the Chargers' defense because of how thin the cornerback room is. While there are exciting traits on Tarheeb Still's film, this was still a bit of a reach for the Chargers.

Los Angeles ended up doubling down on the position right away, which made this pick look better in hindsight. There is nothing wrong with doubling-up at cornerback considering how thin the position is but Still is not a sure-fire lock to turn into a starting-caliber player.

Chargers draft grade for Cam Hart: A

The Cam Hart selection instantly justified the Still pick. When Still was selected, the main question Chargers fans had was why the team picked him over Hart, who had a higher ceiling and has real potential to be a starting-quality boundary corner.

It is clear that the Chargers see Still as a bigger contributor in 2024, hence why the team picked him first. Hart is raw, but he has a much higher ceiling of the two corners and has special traits that Jesse Minter could definitely get the most of.
