Los Angeles Chargers NFL draft grades: Analysis of 2017 picks - Sports Illustrated

Los Angeles Chargers: A

Our final grades for the Chargers' 2017 NFL draft class.
Publish date:

The Chargers took WR Mike Williams at No. 7, which is an exciting pick and will help Philip Rivers keep that passing game cranked up. They might not have needed him, per se, but his talent is huge. The players they did need came in Rounds 2 and 3, in the form of G/T Forrest Lamp (No. 38) and G Dan Feeney (No. 71). A fantastic Day 2 haul that should go a long way toward fixing a long-troublesome, oft-banged up line. The Rayshawn Jenkins (No. 113) and Desmond King (No. 151) back-to-back on Day 3 also should help. Keep a close eye on King, whose playmaking skills alone should have gotten him off the board much earlier.​ Click here for a complete list of the Chargers’ picks.
