Draft Grade: Missed Opportunity
The Chargers have a very deep roster at most positions, and had an opportunity to go all in to win a championship next year. However, they missed pretty much across the board with the exception of their second round pick.
Tillery has been selfish, wildly inconsistent and immature. If you watch his Stanford game he looks like a top 10 pick. but if you evaluate him week in and week out, this was a big reach. He has also had some bad character incidents during his college career. They could have easily waited on other DT’s that have been more productive and consistent, and used this pick on a player that can help them get over the hump.
Adderley was an excellent pick that can pair with their other star young safety, forming one of the best units in the league.
