The Mock Draft Continues With A Fast-Rising Prospect From Tallahassee

Round 4, No. 105 — Braden Fiske, DL, Florida State

The trenches need some reinforcements on defense, and Braden Fiske is exactly what the doctor ordered. Since the 2023 campaign began, few in the country have raised their stock like Fiske. Watch for the Seminole star at the Senior Bowl — a strong week could catapult him into Day 2.

Round 5, No. 139 — MarShawn Lloyd, RB, USC

Austin Ekeler’s time with the franchise is coming to an end, but it’s not all bad news. Ekeler, as effective as he is in the passing game, has never established himself as an elite runner. MarShawn Lloyd possesses top-tier footwork, nice vision, adequate speed, and the lower-body strength of an ox.

Round 6, No. 181 — Ben Sinnott, TE, Kansas State

In a tight end class getting billed as “Brock Bowers and everyone else”, Ben Sinnott can be the diamond in the rough. The Kansas State alum is deadly from the slot as a pass catcher and regularly lines up as an inline blocker, highlighting his versatility for the Chargers.

Round 7, No. 223 — LaMiles Brooks, SAF, Georgia Tech

LaMiles Brooks is the classic lottery ticket mock draft pick on Day 3. From a talent aspect, Brooks is as gifted as anyone in the class. However, he lacks polish in coverage and is susceptible to bad angles as a tackler. Perhaps NFL coaching is the last step needed for Brooks to realize his lofty potential.

Round 7, No. 254 — Andrew Raym, IOL, Oklahoma

Corey Linsley is a former All-Pro, and he’s been as advertised with the Chargers. But at 32 years old and already out for the season with an injury, it’s time for LA to start thinking about an insurance piece behind him. Andrew Raym, a teammate of Tyler Guyton, isn’t an immediate starter on Sundays, but he can provide injury protection upon arrival.
