– Jedrick Wills Jr.
While quarterback was highly talked about as a need for the Chargers, adding a tackle might have been an even more pressing concern. With a lot of talented tackles on the board, the Chargers really could have had their pick of them besides Andrew Thomas who went to the New York Giants.
Arguably the best tackle in the draft was Jedrick Wills Jr. from Alabama. While Willis might be great, he was a right tackle at Alabama for the left-handed Tua Tagovailoa. Taking a tackle in the Top-10, one would prefer to have him be on the blindside of the starting quarterback.
So, Wills would have to make a switch to the left side, which with his talent, should be doable. Strengthening the offensive line is never a bad thing for a franchise, as a protected quarterback will have more time to make decisions, and wide receivers have more time to get open. Also, creating running lanes can make a mediocre running back look great.
The offensive line has been an issue for the Chargers the past few years, and with so many good tackles, they had to have thought about pulling the trigger on one of them. Wills could have been a staple on the offensive line for the next decade if they pulled the trigger.
