San Diego Chargers: Three-Round 2017 NFL Mock Draft
The San Diego Chargers are once again stuck in one of the best divisions in football and just can’t seem to catch the breaks they need to win.
With the looming possibility of a move, it just adds further distractions. Even so, the team must forge ahead and keep trying to build a winner. That is what this latest mock draft tries to tackle. Can the Chargers solve their biggest problems early? Here are the top three rounds and how it has a chance to go for the Bolts in April.
After a somewhat slow start to the year, Mike Williams has reminded everybody in the nation why he’s the consensus top receiver. He more than anybody has that look of a go-to guy. He’s got an inviting 6’3″ frame, good leaping ability, strong hands and enough speed to threaten defenses deep. Anytime a first down or a touchdown is needed, this is the guy Deshaun Watson looks for. With good reason too. Williams always seems to make the big play.
QB, Oklahoma State
Mason Rudolph is one of the fringe names in this class. His physical talent and productivity suggest he can be a top pick but there are certain shaky parts of his game that will leave him out of the top 32. He doesn’t work in a pro-style offense and has a bad tendency to stare down his receivers. On the other hand he’s big with a strong arm and demonstrates good accuracy and ball placement. A couple years learning behind Rivers might be the final key to him figuring it out.
Julie’n Davenport is becoming one of the hot names in the scouting community. Many love him because he exhibits those critical features of a left tackle: size, athleticism, fluid footwork and a good kick step. Of course coming from small Bucknell has many nervous. He hasn’t played top competition and also could stand to add some power to his frame. Nevertheless guys with his tools are hard to find and worth the risk this late in the draft.
