Los Angeles Chargers 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

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:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

17. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram missed a combined 13 games last season, but only seven teams had fewer sacks than the Chargers (27) in 2020 and Ingram is (still) a free agent. While injuries and COVID-19 limited Karlaftis to only three games in 2020, the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder had 17 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks as a freshman in 2019.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

17. Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State

It was something of a surprise when Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave decided to return to Columbus for his final college season, but perhaps in a crowded 2021 wide receiver field Olave wanted the chance to stand out in the subsequent draft class. Or perhaps he felt that the Buckeyes needed to finish the job with a national title. Either way, Olave could rise up boards if he improves on last year's numbers, where he caught 50 passes for 729 yards and seven touchdowns in just seven games. Pairing him with the young arm in Justin Herbert could give the Los Angeles Chargers a heck of a QB/WR duo for the next few seasons.

PFF - Renner (5/7)

17. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

Karlaftis is a power end who was banged up in 2020 but showed what he was capable of with 55 pressures as a true freshman in 2019. He's an ox for opposing offensive tackles to handle and has also demonstrated the ability to kick inside at 6-foot-4, 270 pounds.

2021 NFL Power Rankings: Los Angeles Chargers

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Los Angeles Chargers rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 5 roundup for the Chargers in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 9

Biggest surprise: CB Asante Samuel Jr.

Why it's a surprise: Nobody knew exactly what they were getting when Samuel was drafted with the 47th pick. He's not his dad, but he has surprised just about everyone with interceptions in consecutive games (the first off of Dak Prescott in Week 2, the second off of Patrick Mahomes in the red zone in Week 3). Samuel has four passes defensed and was named Defensive Rookie of the Month but says "I've still got to grind." He's already made a name for himself in the Class of 2021. -- Shelley Smith

NFL.com -- Rank: 7

After the Chargers finished off the Raiders to move into a three-way tie atop the AFC West, they received a high compliment from an unlikely source. "They're going to go places this year," Raiders coach Jon Gruden told the assembled media at SoFi Stadium after the Bolts' 28-14 win. "They're going to be a force to be dealt with." Justin Herbert delivered another star turn with three touchdown passes, but the QB didn't do it alone. Los Angeles got huge performances from running back Austin Ekeler (145 total yards, 2 TDs) and the entire defense, which held the Raiders to season lows in production across the board. Fill up that stadium, Chargers fans!
