Round 4, 123rd Overall: Matt Waletzko, OT, North Dakota
The Los Angeles Chargers can’t have Storm Norton be the guy at right tackle, and after releasing Bryan Bulaga, the hole there is even bigger. Matt Waletzko is an intriguing option on day three, with the athleticism and footwork to handle things on the outside in pass protection. His week in Mobile got many on the radar, and he’s a great pickup at 123.
Round 5, 160th Overall: Joshua Ezeudu, OL, North Carolina
Time to double down along the offensive line. Right guard also isn’t nailed down, and Joshua Ezeudu is a great value pick here. Ezeudu flew under the radar with the Tar Heels, but he plays with a great combination of balance, power, and displays great extension and hand placement in pass protection and working linearly in the run game.
Round 6, 195th Overall: Faion Hicks, CB, Wisconsin
Brandon Staley has consistently talked about a perpetual need at the corner position, and even with a room of Jackson, Asante Samuel Jr., and Michael Davis, the room isn’t full. Faion Hicks is an impressive corner from Wisconsin, with the patience, technique, and flexibility in his transitions to be an inside or outside corner.
Round 6, 214th Overall: Matt Henningsen, DL, Wisconsin
Joseph-Day and Johnson will help the run defense out, but why not add to that room and make sure you have a good rotation up front that can stay fresh? Matt Henningsen brings the toughness, power, and the flashes of quickness to either hold up against the run or get after the quarterback if asked to slant.
