Kelly-USA TODAY SportsThe interior of The Chargers defensive line could look very different when the 2019 season begins. As of now, the bolts are slated to have four defensive linemen that will hit the free agent market when the new league year commences on March 13th. Brandon Mebane, Corey Liuget, Darius Philon and Damion Square have expiring contracts and all could be in could be in new uniforms next season. The Chargers should make the decision to bring back Square and/or Philon, as both have proved to be key rotational pieces to the defensive front. Even if that plan succeeds, the line will still need to be reinforced. That help could come in the form of Clemson defensive tackle, Dexter Lawrence. Lawrence was one of the top high school recruits in the county and quickly became a force on Clemson’s defense. Over the next three seasons he would be named the 2016 ACC defensive rookie of the year and earned first-team All-ACC following his sophomore and junior seasons. However, Lawrence’s college career ended on a low note when he was suspended for a positive banned substance that kept him from participating in the national championship game in January. At 6-foot-4 Womens Kyzir White Jersey , 343 pounds, Lawrence’s best traits are shown as a primary run defender. He is an anchor capable of occupying space, taking on double teams and closing lanes for opposing running backs. Lawrence possesses short area athleticism and is deceptively agile for player of his size. He also displays good hand technique when shedding tackles and uses his power to his advantage to get into the backfield.He doesn’t have the explosiveness to be a consistent interior pass rusher, but still shows decent quickness off the snap. He shows limited lateral movement and average pass rushing skills which will could limit his draft value. Lawrence managed only 3.5 sacks over the last two years, but he still recorded 43 QB pressures, 131 tackles (18 for loss) and 10 total sacks during his college career. After leading all defensive lineman at the combine with 36 reps on the bench press and turning in an impressive 40 time of 5.05, Lawrence was off to a great start at the combine. However it would be short lived as Lawrence suffered a minor quad injury that forced him out of the rest of the drills in Indianapolis.Luckily, the injury is not expected to keep the former tiger from performing at Clemson’s pro-day on March 14th. Lawrence has earned his reputation as an exceptional two down run defender.But teams that value interior pass rush may not see that from him at the next level. Still, his college production still has draft analysis looking at Lawrence as a potential first round pick. Daniel Jeremiah currently ranks the former tiger at No. 31 on his big board and ESPN’s Todd McShay recently mocked Lawrence to The Chargers with the 28th overall selection. Since Tom Telesco became general manager of The Chargers, the team has not spent higher than a 3rd round pick on a defensive tackle. BFTB’s own Louis Gorlini makes a strong argument as to why The Chargers have historically undervalued the defensive tackle spot and why fans should not expect the team to spend a first round pick on the position. Los Angeles could look to free agency to add another veteran to their defensive front. Additionally Virgil Green Jersey , The NFL draft is extremely deep at the the defensive line position, which could afford The Chargers the opportunity to focus their efforts on other areas of need in the higher rounds. With the free agency looming and the possibility of the line lacking serious depth, there is definitely an argument to be made as to why Lawrence would make sense for The Chargers to select him at 28. Could this finally be the year that Telesco puts a high investment on the interior of the defensive line? Only time will tell.Austin Ekeler is the league’s highest-graded running back via PFF Just like everyone predicted right?After the first two weeks of the 2018 season, the highest-graded running back in the NFL by Pro Football Focus is none other than former undrafted free agent Austin Ekeler. His grade of 89.8 is just sliver under the threshold for “elite” (90+) and is a full 10 points ahead of the next closest back, the 49ers’ Matt Breida who comes in at 79.2.On the season, Ekeler is averaging 112 total yards from scrimmage on just 12 touches per game. This puts his production at a whopping 9.33 yards per touch. After some quick maths, I’ve come to the undeniable conclusion that this is a very good thing.I don’t know about you guys but there’s a pretty evident shift in the running back paradigm within the NFL. The traditional workhorse-type of players are becoming less and less important to team success and giving way to running back tandems that maximize production through complementing one another.If you look at the top-5 rushers in the NFL after two weeks, you’ll notice there aren’t a ton of superstars on the short-list. The number one rusher at this point is Breida, followed by Joe Mixon of the Bengals and fellow UDFA Phillip Lindsay of the Broncos.Lindsay, in his own right http://www.thechargerslockerroom.com/aut...cey-jersey , has been just as impressive, if not more so, than Ekeler. He actually made history recently as the first ever UDFA running back to record 100 yards from scrimmage in his first two career games.All 5-foot-8 of him.So next time someone asks, don’t ever be afraid to reply,with confidence, that“size doesn’t matter.”
