7-Round Los Angeles Chargers Mock Draft

Los Angeles Chargers 7-Round Mock Draft

News, NFL

The Chargers are coming off a devastating playoff loss to the Jaguars where they blew a massive lead. They replaced OC Joe Lombardi with former Cowboys OC Kellen Moore, but they otherwise had a relatively quiet offseason. In this Los Angeles Chargers mock draft, we will address a combination of their needs and have them select the best player available!

The Chargers have all seven of their original draft picks including picks 21, 54, 85, 125, 156, 200, and 239. Their primary needs at this point are wide receiver, cornerback, tight end, defensive tackle, and offensive line.

Los Angeles Chargers 7-Round Mock Draft

Round 1 (No. 21 overall)

Pick: Joey Porter Jr, CB, Penn State

The Chargers need help at cornerback badly and Porter was still around in this mock draft simulation. I anticipate in most situations he will be gone by pick 21, but perhaps the Chargers luck out like they did here. Porter is a three-year starter at Penn State and allowed just 143 total yards and zero touchdowns in his final season with the Nittany Lions.

Round 2 (No. 54 overall)

Pick: Sam LaPorta, TE, Iowa

The Chargers have Gerald Everett but could still be in the market for a difference-making tight end to give Justin Herbert more weapons. LaPorta can line up in-line and in the slot, playing a massive part in Iowa’s passing game. He racked up 648 yards on 58 receptions in his final season with the Hawkeyes.

Round 3 (No. 85 overall)

Pick: Tank Bigsby, RB, Auburn

Austin Ekeler has been begging the Chargers to get him some help so that he doesn’t need to be soaking up 20-plus touches per game. Regardless of Ekeler requesting a trade, Bigsby would be a good fit as a player who averaged the 7the-most yards after contact per attempt in the country last year.

Round 4 (No. 125 overall)

Pick: Trey Palmer, WR, Nebraska

The Chargers retained Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, which is great news for the offense as a whole. Despite that, though, they need speed … and badly. Palmer would provide exactly that after running a 4.33 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Round 5 (No. 156 overall)

Pick: Nick Saldiveri, OT, Old Domion

The Chargers are slated to start Trey Pipkins at Right Tackle who graded 64th out of 81 qualifying right tackles last season. Saldiveri won’t be an immediate solution but didn’t allow a single sack on 455 pass block snaps at right tackle last season at Old Dominion.

Round 6 (No. 200 overall)

Pick: Jonah Tavai, DT, San Diego State

The Chargers prefer leaner defensive tackles as they are fine conceding the running game but want to focus on rushing the passer. Tavai had 12 sacks last year and 10 the season prior.

Round 7 (No. 239 overall)

Pick: Cory Trice, CB, Purdue

Continuing to add depth in the secondary is likely a priority for the Bolts as they exit the draft. Trice had two interception and allowed just a 51.3 passer rating last season.
