Not be be outdone by their neighboring counterparts from the NFC, the Los Angeles Chargers are making a strong case as the next team from LA to win the Lombardi Trophy right after the rival Rams just did so last season. What more do the Chargers need at the upcoming NFL draft to make their 2022 Super Bowl push even more fool-proof?
Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, futures NFL odds, and special features for the duration of the 2022 NFL offseason. This time, let’s examine the best first-round prospects that the Los Angeles Chargers may strongly consider picking up at the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.
Top 2022 NFL Draft First-Round Picks for the Los Angeles Chargers
Bernhard Raimann – Central Michigan (OT)
Although Justin Herbert hasn’t shown great need for support in pass-protection, the Chargers could do no wrong by selecting another crucial piece to their offensive line with some one like Bernhard Raimann with the 17th-overall pick. Per Pro Football Focus, Raimann has the second-highest grade amongst all offensive lineman in this year’s class, and the Austrian transfer is flying under pundits’ radars in favor of other proven standouts such as Ikem Ekwonu and Evan Neal.
Skyy Moore – Western Michigan (WR)
The Bolts are just one downfield threat away from having the most postent passing game in the NFL. In turn, they might want to continue stockpiling WRs for Herbert to throw to, and Western Michigan’s Skyy Moore appears to be a solid fit. Moore had an FBS-best 26 broken tackles amongst wide receivers last season, making him a superb slot option in his rookie campaign whilst Keenan Allen and Mike Williams continue to torch opposing defenders out wide.
Andrew Booth Jr. – Clemson (CB)
Having J.C. Jackson and Asante Samuel as the starting cornerbacks is nice and all, but the Chargers could still use some depth for their nickel and dime packages on defense. That being said, Andrew Booth Jr. from Clemson should still be on the board after the top CBs of the class like Sauce Gardner and Derek Stingley Jr. are picked up in the top 10. Booth, a former five-star recruit and first-team All-ACC selection, has the right speed for the pros and could easily develop into a league starter should he develop better awareness in the NFL level.
