Vote: How did the Chargers do in the draft?

It will be years before we can accurately assess the Chargers' 2017 rookie class, but it's time to weigh in on how well the team used its draft resources.

Chargers focus on O-line at the draft (0:53)

Chargers beef up the O-line and add a playmaker at WR for Philip Rivers in this year's draft, but ignore succession plan for veteran signal caller.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Isaac Rochell started 37 of 49 career games with Notre Dame, and registered 55 tackles (seven for loss) in 2016. He left South Bend with 22 career tackles for loss.

Los Angeles Chargers 2017 draft class: 1st round, 7th pick: Clemson WR Mike Williams 2nd round, 38th pick: Western Kentucky OL Forrest Lamp 3rd round, 71st pick: Indiana OL Dan Feeney 4th round, 113th pick: Miami S Rayshawn Jenkins 5th round, 151st pick: Iowa DB Desmond King 6th round, 190th pick: Utah OT Sam Tevi 7th round, 225th pick: Notre Dame DE Isaac Rochell

The Chargers select Notre Dame DE Isaac Rochell to complete team's draft for 2017 -- the only defensive lineman selected by the Chargers this year.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Converted defensive tackle Sam Tevi cut his teeth at both offensive tackle positions his last two seasons at Utah, playing 1,321 snaps and registering 12 cut blocks in 24 starts.

Chargers take another offensive lineman, Utah LT Sam Tevi. That's three offensive lineman in this year's draft, an area the Chargers definitely needed to upgrade.


King brings playmaking to Chargers' secondary

On the shorter side with average top-end speed, Desmond King isn't as fluid on tape as his combine results would suggest. He is, however, a playmaker with better quickness than speed and good instincts. He's also a tough player who is willing to step up in run support.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chargers got some real value with CB Desmond King in the 5th round. King has the ball skills and instincts to make plays and he was one of the top tackling CBs I watched on tape. King also brings the versatility to move around in the secondary and impact special teams.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Desmond King leaves Iowa as one of the Hawkeyes' most productive cornerbacks. The two-time First Team All-Big Ten was the Jim Thorpe Award winner in 2015, and set school records for starts (51) and games played (53) by a defensive back.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

Chargers take another safety in Iowa's Desmond King in the fifth round at No. 151. Looks like the focus is defense on Day 3.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Rayshawn Jenkins was busy in the secondary for Miami in 2016, ranking third on the Hurricanes in tackles (76) and registering 4.5 tackles for loss. He also led the team with two interceptions and ranked second with seven pass breakups.

Rayshawn Jenkins draft highlights (0:45)

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

Chargers take free safety Rayshawn Jenkins out of Miami at No. 113 in the fourth round, a player who can come in and develop behind starter Dwight Lowery. Big guy for a safety at 6-1 and 214 pounds.

Day 2 winners, question marks and reaches

How about the Bolts taking two interior offensive linemen Friday? Dan Feeney, Kiper's third-ranked guard, was a good value in the third round.
