2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #27

Return to Mock Draft

LA Chargers
Trenton Simpson
27

Clemson

OLB



"The NFL world has awakened to all the wonders that comprise the LA Chargers' roster moves in recent years, starting with stud QB Justin Herbert. Herbert is the betting favorite to lead all QBs in passing yards this year, with a stellar receiving corps led by Mike Williams and Keenan Allen, along with receiving back Austin Ekeler. They've hit two starters on the OL back to back in the draft, and their defense is littered with stars like Derwin James and Khalil Mack. So projecting the Bolts' 2023 Draft would seem to be easy. Pick a position of need, sit tight and watch a future All-Pro fall in your lap. Despite a couple of attempts, they haven't hit on a do-it-all LB, so let's look there.

#Clemson LB/S Trenton Simpson does it all for their defense. Assisting in the run game, short area zone coverages plus the ability to chase down the football.

All three are on display on consecutive plays.

Clemson's Trenton Simpson is a blueblood athlete who can line up across the formation and make an impact. He would address a rare weak spot on the Chargers' roster while building a post-Mack future for the team.
