Los Angeles Chargers 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Los Angeles Chargers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Los Angeles Chargers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Chargers:

CBS Sports - Edwards (11/25)

22. Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia

Los Angeles has consistently been gashed on the ground this season. Jordan Davis can not only take up space in the middle but apply pressure in pass rushing situations.

NBC Sports Chicago - Morgan (11/24)

22. Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn

The Chargers compete in a division with talented quarterbacks, like Derek Carr and Patrick Mahomes and a litany of game breaking receivers. Wideouts like Tyreek Hill, Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and tight ends such as, Travis Kelce, Darren Waller and Noah Fant require defensive backs capable of defending these pass catchers. Should Los Angeles pick McCreary, they'll get a player with the skill set to quickly undercut ball carriers and limit how far they get downfield. Ultimately they'll have an unrelenting, physical defensive back with good hands and game changing ability.

Below you will find a Week 18 roundup for the Chargers in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 15

New Year's resolution: Upgrade Justin Herbert's contract after Year 3

Herbert is in the second year of his rookie contract and his base salary is $1,818,125. He is trending toward a big-time extension, but the Chargers can't negotiate a new deal until after Herbert's third season. Still. the Chargers will need to be ready to make Herbert one of the highest paid players at the QB position if he continues to put up big numbers like he has in his first two seasons: 66 TD passes, nearly 9,000 yards passing and only 24 interceptions. Herbert is poised to lead the Chargers into the playoffs if they can beat the Raiders on Sunday night. There's no doubt Herbert is building a compelling case for his second contract. -- Shelley Smith

NFL.com -- Rank: 13

The Chargers took care of business against an undermanned Broncos team. Now, it's all in front of them. Beat the Raiders on Sunday night in Vegas and the Chargers will be back in the playoffs for the first time in three years. Fatalistic Bolts fans might feel like a prime-time win-and-in showcase sets up for more heartbreak for this star-crossed franchise. This is understandable given the history, but L.A. should enter that game with the deeper team and -- most importantly -- the superior quarterback. It's time to ride Justin Herbert to the tournament.
