2015 NFL Mock Draft: Chargers add T.J. Clemmings

New, comments

San Diego bolsters its offensive line with their first-round pick.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The San Diego Chargers are on the clock with the 17th pick in the Acme Packing Company mock draft, and Aron Yohannes is on the pick. Though San Diego could use help at the boundary on both offense and defense, Aron sees the offensive line as a need.

With the 17th pick, the Chargers select...

T.J. Clemmings, offensive tackle/guard, Pittsburgh

Height: 6'5"
Weight: 309 pounds
Combine bench press: 22 reps

Here's the explanation from Aron:

The Wisconsin homer in me is begging for this pick to be Melvin Gordon, but I'll grab a starting running back in the next round. There's so much depth there. San Diego needs help at one more tackle spot and Clemmings can bounce to either side of the line for them and give them more flexibility and depth in their unit (D.J. Fluker would move to guard). On top of bringing in Orlando Franklin, adding Clemmings solves their other issue at tackle, and hopefully will improve Philip Rivers' protection next season. He's a pretty nice value here also.
