Mike Jones Jr. NFL Draft photo
While the Chargers grabbed a couple linebackers in the mid to late rounds of the 2021 Draft, they figure to be replenishing the position again next year. Spotrac shows the Chargers with only $7.3M tied up in linebacker salaries in 2022, a third of what they have in wideouts and a fifth of their defensive line commitments. Starters Kyzir White and Uchenna Nwosu will be unrestricted free agents, giving Coach Brandon Staley the option of remaking the position group to his liking.

Staley loves versatility and speed from the back of the defense, so a player like Mike Jones Jr. of LSU would certainly appeal. Jones, a cover LB who can run and hit, spent three years at Clemson before transferring to Baton Rouge. He has deep experience in high-end programs and should make a quick transition to the pro game.

CHARGERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
