With that being said, listed below are six gamers that shined who would be on the Chargers’ radar:
IOL Quinn Meinerz, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
The Senior Bowl is notorious for bringing in exiguous-college prospects who existing that the competitors is no longer too huge for them. This year, it’s Meinerz. The worn Division III has lined up both at heart and guard, the put he’s been a wall in pass protection and a highway-graded in the hobble game, inserting defenders on the turf. Projected as a sixth/seventh-round take coming into the event, Meinerz is making his case to be chosen throughout the tip-100 picks.

OT James Hudson, Cincinnati
After no longer allowing a single sack and handiest giving up six total pressures this previous season, Hudson has serene long gone below the radar. On the replacement hand, he’s making his case to be a stable mid-round decision near April. In the one-on-one drills, the worn defensive lineman is showing off decrease physique athleticism, a large sinful, aggressive hands and competitive temperament to preserve sq. to rushers.

EDGE Elerson Smith, UNI
Whereas Hudson and Meinerz shined, there were a pair of defensive linemen that bought essentially the most out of the fellows up entrance, at the side of Smith. Smith has the whole valuable traits at the put; length, flexibility and athleticism. As we advise, he confirmed gargantuan utilization to work inside of of offensive linemen’s frames and the burst off the highway of scrimmage. In 2019, Smith had 14 sacks, 22 tackles for loss and 5 compelled fumbles. The 6-foot-7 and 255 pounder is a guy that’s seemingly going to creep on Day 3, nevertheless will exceed expectations early on.

CB Keith Taylor, Washington
I’ve talked about earlier than, head coach Brandon Staley covets factual defensive abet play in his machine. Taylor, the 6-foot-3 and 195 corner is any individual who would possibly presumably perchance intrigue. At his most efficient in zone coverage, Taylor has also proven a gargantuan working out of approach and working out of routes in man coverage, sticking to some of the tip wideouts down the discipline. Taylor didn’t produce any interceptions at college, nevertheless while Taylor has inconsistent ball abilities to create turnovers, he shows the athleticism, competitiveness and length to preserve related to receivers.

CB Aaron Robinson, UCF
Robinson became as soon as yet every other defensive abet who made some eyebrow-raising performs. Coming in at at 6-foot-1 and 193 pounds, Robinson locked up receivers in a single-on-ones, taking part in tough and physical at the highway of scrimmage to impression the starting up and timing of routes. He also confirmed the rate and hip fluidity to turn and hobble with receivers after the initial press. Overall, he became as soon as gargantuan sticky all day. Robinson has proven the flexibility to play outside corner, nickel corner, stable safety and outside linebacker.
