After many months of rumors, speculation and mock drafts… The 2016 NFL Draft week is finally here!!!
Every fan has been pondering whom the San Diego Chargers are gonna pick with their first round selection.
So with in mind let’s take a quick look at three players the Chargers might target with the third overall pick in Thursday’s NFL Draft.
1.- OT Laremy Tunsil (OLE MISS)
Tunsil has everything you look for when it comes to being a franchise left tackle. He played in college football’s best conference and dominated at the highest level there. When you look at the tape against Alabama it’s very easy to see that he has rare ability. He is a gifted athlete and has terrific feet for such a big man. He also plays at a great pad level. But not everything is a positive with Tunsil, as he got in trouble with the NCAA for hiring an agent. That could be a red flag when it comes to his maturity level.
Overall there’s no question that Tunsil has every tool to become an All-Pro at the next level. It’s only a matter if he has the determination to become that kind of player.
2.- S/CB Jalen Ramsey (Florida State)
There’s few times when a player delivers on the hype. When Ramsey arrived at FSU he arrived with all the hype that comes with being a give star recruit. Ramsey exceeded expectations very quickly and he quickly became the face of the ‘Noles. He has great speed and truly can do it all on the football field.
He can go sideline to sideline at safety and as a CB can cover slot receivers with ease. The only knock on his game is that he had just four interceptions in college, so he might lack elite ball tracking skills. Other than that, Ramsey is just everything you hope a defensive back to be.
3.- LB Myles Jack (UCLA)
Myles Jack is a LB only because that’ where he lines up on defense, because this guy can really do it all in the field. Some teams even project him at safety at the next level. The Chargers are even rumored to have some interest in him in the position. That’s because he has the speed to run with wide receivers and running backs.
He does have the size of a prototypical LB and that could be his future on Sunday’s. The only negative (and a big negative) with Jack is that he is returning from a very serious knee injury. That might drop him a little bit in the first round, but you could make a great argument that there’s no better prospect than Jack in this years draft. He has unreal physical abilities.
