Chargers draft Mike Williams’ replacement in new 2022 mock

Chargers draft Mike Williams’ replacement in new 2022 mock

Photo by Jason Mowry/Icon Sportswire via With Mike Williams currently without a contract past the 2021 season, it’s only right to consider the Chargers may be without his services during this upcoming season. If that ends up being the case, they’ll need to find some way to replace his dynamic play-making ability. In a brand new mock over at CBSSports.com, NFL writer Josh Edwards has the Bolts passing on other glaring needs to add Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave to their already-potent offense. If Mike Williams leaves — and I believe it is possible, although...

Chargers 2022 Draft Profile: CB Roger McCreary

Jake Crandall / USA TODAY NETWORK The Bolts have a chance to land an impact player in the secondary at #17. If there was one position group on the Chargers whose depth got exploited this past season, it has to be the secondary. Injuries and COVID-19 did a number on secondary as a whole but it was especially a rough year for the starting cornerbacks, all of whom struggled to be on the field at the same time for any notable stretch of time. With Chris Harris Jr. getting further and further into the wrong side of 30 and Michael Davis struggling in his first season under...

Chargers sign CFL DE Jamal Davis II

Photo by Wesley Hitt/ The Bolts sign an intriguing project at pass rusher. The Chargers are still in the early stages of their offseason but they’re already looking into all avenues when it comes to improving their defense. On Tuesday, Herb Surkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reported that former Montreal Alouettes defensive end Jamal Davis is signing a reserve/futures contract with the Chargers. The 6’4, 250pound Davis played in nine games for the Alouettes, recording 17 total tackles and four sacks. Excuse me if this is already out there - haven’t checked...

Chargers Daily Links: Which position should the Chargers avoid in this year’s draft?

Photo by David Eulitt/ Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. Good morning, Chargers fans! This morning, I want to hear about the one position (aside from quarterback) that you do NOT want to see the Chargers select in this upcoming draft. Do you believe the Bolts should re-sign Mike Williams and avoid adding another wideout? Is the team doing well enough at running back to avoid throwing another pick at the backfield? Or do you believe the edge rusher group looks solid enough to focus on other, more-pressing areas of the roster? Let me know what...

Chargers interview Giants assistant Anthony Blevins for special teams coordinator vacancy

Photo by Robin Alam/Icon Sportswire via There’s something about the Giants, apparently. Despite an overall porous 2021 season for the Giants, the Chargers continue to be enamored by their special teams staff. Roughly a week after they interviewed Giants special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey, the Bolts have now interviewed his assistant Anthony Blevins, per ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. The 45-year old Blevins has been with the Giants the past four seasons, serving stints as the team’s assistant defensive backs coach and assistant linebackers coach duties on top of...

Chargers 2022 Draft Profile: OT Nicholas Petit-Frere

Photo by Alika Jenner/ The Bolts have had luck with Buckeyes drafted in the first round. Even after spending a ton of resources to renovate the most of all but one position along the offensive line, the Chargers are still looking for another offensive lineman to either nab early in this year’s draft or to sign in free agency. That’s how bad the play was that they got out of Storm Norton and their right tackle spot. A couple of the draft’s top tackles will be gone by the time the Chargers select at #17 but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a shortage of notable...

Chargers draft pair of trench players in Dan Brugler’s latest mock

Photo by David Purdy/ I can get down with this two-round haul. Dane Brugler just dropped a two-round mock draft over at The Athletic and he’s got the Chargers drafting a pair of massive trench players, one on either side of the ball. The first player is a massive, monolithic offensive tackle from an FCS program in the middle of Iowa. The second-round pick is another big defensive lineman from perennial powerhouse Alabama. Yes, I know that sounds weird, but it’s the truth. Just goes to show that you shouldn’t always scout the helmet, you know? Without further ado,...
