Los Angeles Chargers Combine Prospects

The Los Angeles Chargers finished 5-11, with eight losses decided by seven points or less. Los Angeles has the opportunity to land an impact player within the top-10. Quarterback is a major position of need. Phillip Rivers is in the latter stages in his career, and the Chargers would be wise to invest in a promising quarterback. For this reason, the Chargers could also use more talent at the skilled positions on offense.

Mike Williams-Wide receiver, Clemson

Williams was the primary target of star quarterback Deshaun Watson at Clemson. The 6-3 225 pound wide receiver was one of the more productive wideouts in the ACC.

Mike Williams played in all 15 games, en-route to amassing 98 catches, 1361 yards and 11 touchdowns in 16′. Williams exploded as a freshman topping 50 catches and 1,000 yards.

In 2015, he only played in the season opener after a freak injury.

Jonathan Allen-Defensive end, Alabama

Allen is one of the most decorated players in the combine. He won the Bronko Nagurski, Chuck Bednarik, and Ted Hendricks trophies after his senior year.

Allen had 69 tackles, 16 tfl, and 10.5 sacks in 2016. A converted outside linebacker, Jonathan Allen has increased his sack total each season at Alabama.

Ryan Ramczyk – Tackle – Wisconsin

Ryan is one of the most heralded offensive lineman in what is seen as a light offensive tackle draft class. He transfered first to Mid-State Technical College (which does not have a football team, or any varsity athletics program, for that matter). Next, Ryan later went on to UW-Stevens Point, a D-III program.

In his first and only season at the FBS level, Ramczyk earned First Team All-Big Ten honors from league coaches, consensus All-American honors from the media and a first round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee.

Ryan will go from a little D-III program to a legitimate first round prospect and quite possibly the first offensive lineman off the board.

Jessamen Dunker – Guard/Tackle – Tennessee State

Jessamen originally started his career at University of Florida, where he redshirted in his first year. According to reports, Dunker was then arrested for riding a scooter without a license plate during his second year at Florida.

And he didn’t realize that the scooter he purchased was reported as stolen. Jessamen decided to transfer to Tennessee state and started at left tackle and left guard in 2014.

Dunker received second-team All-Ohio Valley Conference notice as a junior for his work at left and right guard.

Jessamen met high expectations as a senior, starting every game at left tackle again and grabbing first-team All-OVC and numerous FCS All-American honors in the process.
