Todd Mc (subscription required) – (TRADE – Pick 20) ​​DT Jordan Davis, Georgia

Last update: February 16, 2022

“In addition to the additional picks acquired through our mock trade, the Chargers would still have a huge space eater here to improve on a dismal rush defense. Their 4.6 yards allowed per rush tied for the fifth-worst rate in the NFL the last season, and now defensive tackles Linval Joseph and Justin Jones are both free agents. Davis’ 340-pound frame demands double-team attention, so in addition to plugging rushing holes, he would potentially open opportunities for Joey Bosa and Co. after the slightly easier QB.”

“The Chargers had a comically terrible rush defense in 2021, giving up 2,361 yards and 22 rushing touchdowns (both in the league’s bottom five). Davis is just what this team needs to put this game back on track. defense on track, and he brings the added bonus of an untapped pass rush. reps as a full-back on the goal line.”

“The Chargers get their new nose tackle in Davis, who keeps smaller offensive linemen out of his way and has better offensive speed than expected, given his 6-6, 340-pound frame.”

“The defensive interior is by far the Chargers’ biggest need heading into 2022, as teams cut through them like a hot knife through butter last season. Davis may not be a player to three, but he’s as good as he can be in run defense.”

“One of my favorite prospects in this entire class, Trent McDuffie is a player I’d bet anything on. He offers cat-like speed of coverage to mirror route patterns, excellent deep speed to carry vertically and very good ball skills What makes McDuffie stand out to me is that he is an exceptional tackler in support on the run and has a very good conscience to try and bring down the ball and create turnovers. The Chargers need more help in the secondary and pairing McDuffie with Asante Samuel Jr. would be great fun.”

“I’ve seen a lot of Olave in Ohio State, and I’m constantly impressed with how smooth and easily he renders everything. He’s not big but escapes media coverage, has a Top speed and riding great roads. With Keenan Allen aging and Mike Williams a free agent, the Chargers would do well to invest in Olave.”

“I’m pretty sure I’ll get some feedback on this one because it seems like everyone and their sister is making fun of a really big DT at the Chargers to help shore up the run. But my role models like Dean here. Why: His good run-stopping ability is also complemented by an ability to help stop opposing tight ends – and the AFC West has some great tight ends to contend with. blitzes are solid, and he ranks in the top 87th percentile in terms of block breaking and chasing speed, especially in midfield. The Chargers have a very special player on the roster in Derwin James, and throwing in midfield should be a lot tougher with Dean and James on that defense.I saw a lot of Olave at Ohio State, and I’m constantly impressed with how smooth and easy he makes everything. Allen aging and Mike Willia as an age nt free, the Chargers would do well to invest in Olave.”

“Mike Williams is a free agent. At 27, he’s probably hoping to cash in on a long-term contract after a season in which he recorded 76 receptions for 1,146 yards and nine touchdowns. The Chargers have a ton of cap the space and could tag him into the franchise, capitalizing on their wealth or they could sign him for an extension and potentially leave Keenan Allen, who would be 31 next offseason, in a year It’s easy to see a scenario in which Los Angeles move from either of those two players next year. How he wants to build his team going forward will dictate those moves. The Chargers could see what Cincinnati has done this year with three very talented wide receivers in 11 personal, empty sets and want that for themselves.”

“There may be no better fit than Davis landing with the Chargers, who didn’t have an interior defenseman rating above 59.6 against the run. Due to Los Angeles’ propensity for shells safety at two heights, their defensive tackles need to hold up. Davis is, by far, the best defender in this draft.”

Kyle StackpoleCBS Sports – DT Jordan Davis, Georgia

“Opponents have created massive holes against the Chargers defense, so the team is adding a massive human in Davis to clog those running lanes. He can also help collapse the pocket against Patrick Mahomes and Derek Carr.”
