Behind Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky ranked fifth in the nation in yards per game (523.1) in 2016 and led Conference USA in rushing yards. That should be welcome on a Chargers offense that ranked 26th in rushing yards per game.

Chargers nab Forrest Lamp

Despite playing left tackle at Western Kentucky, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. says Lamp's shorter arms make him better suited to play guard or center in the NFL.

So offensive lineman Forrest Lamp is gone to the Chargers in the second round. So much for Lamp possibly falling to the Falcons. Maybe Indiana's Dan Feeney, Temple's Dion Dawkins, Pittsburgh's Dorian Johnson in play for Falcons at guard with the 63rd overall pick.

The Chargers just got one of the biggest steals of the draft in guard Forrest Lamp. We had him ranked as the No. 16 overall player and the No. 1 offensive lineman, and he fell to the 38th pick. He dominated against Alabama this season. Fills a big need for the Chargers.

Chargers fill another position of need up front with the selection of OL Forrest Lamp at No. 38. Instant upgrade to the team's interior offensive mine.

Correction on Bills' trade with Rams: according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, it is pick No. 149. But that is a fifth-round selection, not fourth-round. Bills now have four selections in fifth round.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

G Forrest Lamp and WR Zay Jones are on the board at 37th overall, but the Rams have traded their pick to the Bills, who also get the Rams' 149th pick. Rams will pick 44th and 91st, giving them two third-round picks today.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

With the Chargers nearing the clock at No. 38, Western Kentucky OL Forrest Lamp makes some sense. Chargers also could use another playmaker on offense like Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills have traded up with the Rams from No. 44 to No. 37. Buffalo also received 149 (fourth round) and gives up No. 44 and No. 91 (third round).

The Titans ask their new players to name a living or historical figure they would like to meet. Adoree' Jackson's answer: "The guy who invented Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (Harry Burnett ‘H.B.' Reese). A genius. That's my favorite candy. I eat that like it ain't nothing."

Falcons first-rounder Takk McKinley on being selected with the 26th overall pick: ``To be honest, I thought I was going to go way earlier. So to get in the late rounds, I was like, `Man, am I'm going to get picked? What's going on?' The sweat started to come. When Atlanta made that trade and picked me, it was a bit surprising. It was a few teams that was willing to pick me. But Atlanta doing that, it's a blessing.''
