, blissful, and heart-wrenching weekend that draftniks have been working..."ONLY TWO MORE SLEEPS UNTIL THE NFL DRAFT!!!!It’s really almost here. The most wonderful time of the year. The most exciting, blissful, and heart-wrenching weekend that draftniks have been working towards since the final seconds ticked off the clock last April.There’s really not much to say at this point because you all know the drill. Here are another four prospects that the Chargers should instantly keeps tabs on should they escape the first round and find themselves waiting on Friday night.DT Renell Wren - Arizona StateSurprise! This spot for Wren might wrinkle some feathers (I’m looking at you Jamie) but life isn’t fun unless a few fowl have been rustled.Wren is a tough one to pin down as a prospect. He comes with plenty of questions. Can he find increased productivity in the NFL after not doing much at ASU? Can he find consistency? There are both real questions that a team must help answer when it comes to drafting Wren anywhere, but especially this high.You can likely name a handful of tackles that you believe will be more reliable, but you can’t name too many that are more athletically-gifted than this former Sun Devil. Just take a look at clip below:Wren possesses one of the most explosive first steps among the defensive linemen. In fact, it’s almost the sole way that Wren wins during games. He needs to find a better, more varied pass-rushing plan or else his career will end far too soon once opposing linemen figure out how to stop his shallow list of tricks.But at a hulking 6-foot-5 and 320 pounds, Wren is strong (30 reps on bench) and has some wiggle to him (4.53 in the short shuttle, 7.65 in the 3-cone). I believe Wren will go higher than most believe he should simply due to his upside. You see it every year. I think Wren is one of those guys in this class.But let’s be real. Does his lack of productivity scare me? A little. However, some would argue that Wren was used all wrong in college. He spent most of his snap lined up as a nose tackle or as a shade. Wren’s skillset is much more suited for a 3-tech where he doesn’t have to worry about two-gapping. He’s a better player when he doesn’t have to think. Lucky for fans of Wren, he won’t have to do much of that in Gus Bradley’s defense.S Juan Thornhill - VirginiaIf you want a defensive back with elite productivity, look no further than Virginia’s Thornhill. In his final three seasons, Thornhill amassed 13 interceptions and a whopping 26 pass breakups. His senior season in 2018, he also posted 98 total stops Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys 2019
, one of the highest numbers for a safety in this year’s class.But wait, do you want elite athletic ability as well? We got you, boo.At the combine last month, Thornhill jumped an incredible 44 inches in the vertical and 11’ 9” in the broad. Those numbers match up real close to the Cowboys’ Byron Jones who jumped a combine-record 12 feet several years ago. Jones was just rated as a top-5 cornerback in the NFL in 2018 by Pro Football Focus.There likely isn’t a more complete safety in this draft than Thornhill, who combines production, athleticism, and consistency into one heck of a player. I’m not sure Thornhill makes it all the way to #60, but with the bevy of defensive linemen and other premium positions in this draft, crazier things have happened.OT Yodney Cajuste - West VirginiaCajuste has been in talks as a top offensive tackle prospect for as long as I can remember. He was a top-3 guy at one point. I even think he was even the number one OT on someone’s rankings in early January. But at this very moment, Cajuste is likely a solid day-2 selection and possibly the fifth-best player at his position.A 30-game starter out of 31 career games, Cajuste offers almost everything one could want in an offensive linemen: elite athleticism, a nastiness on the field, and the type of quick footwork that would make a boxer blush, but the one thing holding Cajuste back is good ol’ fundamentals in pass protection.As the 2018 Big 12 Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year, Cajuste is obviously good. You don’t win awards for being “meh”. But lapses in his kick-slide and occasional deadening of his feet are notable concerns.If you are me Jerry Tillery Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys
, however, you raise your grades of offensive by a bit when you see them demolish a defensive line or pancake a poor soul into the turf. This is a temperament that is almost impossible to teach older offensive lineman, especially those now heading into the NFL. Some guys are just wired different and Cajuste wants to body whoever is unfortunate enough to line up across from him.Cajuste would likely slide in at right tackle with the potential to take over once Russell Okung’s time with the team expires. In the short-term, he would be a welcomed upgrade over Sam Tevi and a positive role model for the offensive line when it comes to finishing opponents on the field.LB Mack Wilson - AlabamaWilson was touted as a “sure-thing” first round pick for pretty much the entire season up until the all-star games started coming around.Due to a lingering injury, Wilson did not participate in the combine apart from jumping but did end up running through the list of athletic testing at Alabama’s pro day several weeks later.His performance was less than ideal as the former five-star recruit ran his forty somewhere between 4.65 and 4.70, according to scouts in attendance. Not surprising when you take his lower-body ailments into consideration but Wilson was quoted saying he wanted to hit “a 4.5 or low 4.4s”.When it comes to Wilson, teams are just going to have to trust the tape which shouldn’t be too hard because he’s got plenty of it.One of the biggest things you will be getting with Wilson is his ball skills, which are arguably the best of any linebacker in this entire class. In 2017. Wilson led the Crimson Tide with four interceptions. The following season, he snagged another pair of picks and had five pass breakups. The 6-foot-1, 240-pounder had 71 total stops and five tackles-for-loss in 2018, leading him to a second team All-SEC nod following the season.Wilson was a common pick for the Chargers at #28 earlier in the offseason but now seems to be a more realistic option at #60. If that were to happen, the Chargers would be already in the running for best draft based on value right out of the gate. NEW YORK (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams are back in a familiar place: the top spot in the NFL.The Rams reclaimed the No. 1 position in the latest AP Pro32 poll . They received all 12 first-place votes and 384 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.The Rams (11-1), the NFC West champions, have the league’s best record and are a strong contender to make a run at the Super Bowl.The New Orleans Saints slipped to No. 2 after losing in Dallas last week.“Get revenge against Bucs?” asked Fox Sports’ John Czarnecki. The Saints head to Tampa this week to face the Buccaneers, the only other team to beat New Orleans this season.The Kansas City Chiefs stayed at No. 3 after beating Oakland. The Chiefs Russell Okung Jerseys Stitched
, who at 10-2 have the AFC’s best record, will attempt to reach the Super Bowl without the NFL’s reigning rushing champion. The Chiefs released running back Kareem Hunt on Friday after TMZ posted a video of him shoving and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel in February.Also staying in place were the New England Patriots at No. 4. The Patriots are closing in on their nearly annual AFC East title as they head to Miami to face the Dolphins on Sunday.The league’s hottest team, the Houston Texans, moved up two spots to climb into the top five. The Texans beat Cleveland last week for their ninth win a row.Another team playing well, the Los Angeles Chargers, kept their spot at No. 6 after a second-half rally on the road to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 33-30. The Chargers have won eight of nine and will have an easier matchup on Sunday as they host the reeling Cincinnati Bengals.“The Chargers proved they are a different team than in years past with a come-from-behind win in Pittsburgh,” said Jenny Vrentas of The Monday Morning Quarterback. “Anthony Lynn is a Coach of the Year candidate.”The Steelers stayed at No. 8 and will face Oakland on Sunday without running back James Conner, who has a sprained left ankle.The Chicago Bears slipped two spots to No. 7 after losing in overtime to the New York Giants. The Bears will have a challenge on Sunday night when they host the Rams.The Seattle Seahawks, who inched up a spot to No. 9, will close Week 14 by hosting Minnesota on Monday night in a game that could go a long way toward determining the NFC wild-card race. The Vikings dropped two spots to fall out of the top 10 at No. 11 after losing at New England.“Offense is out of whack and the defense isn’t as dominant as in recent seasons,” Alex Marvez of Sirius XM said of the Vikings.And the Cowboys moved up two spots to round out the top 10. The Cowboys will host the Eagles in a key NFC East game on Sunday.“A speedy and hard-hitting Dallas defense that hounded (quarterback) Drew Brees into submission readjusts its sights to Carson Wentz in a key NFC East matchup,” said Ira Kaufman of Fox 13 in Tampa, Florida.
