The Los Angeles Chargers are shifting their focus from free agency to the fast approaching NFL Draft scheduled for April 27-29 in Philadelphia. For the first time new head coach Anthony Lynn and general manager Tom Telesco will be working together in order to bring in players who can have the biggest impact.

A few areas on the roster are expected to be targeted early, especially on the defensive side of the football. A defensive back or additional edge rusher are currently the top two targets for Los Angeles when they’re on the clock with the No. 7 overall pick.

According to ESPN staff writer Eric D. Williams, Lynn is a fan of Michigan safety and linebacker hybrid, Jabrill Peppers. “He plays so many positions. I believe if you put him at one position, I think he can be a superstar — it’s that simple. He’s been a superstar his whole life. I don’t think it’s going to stop because he’s in the National Football League. He’s got a lot of juice.”

There is no doubt that Peppers is a dynamic player who recorded numerous highlights during his Michigan career. He played multiple positions and on special teams for the Wolverines, working out with both the safety and linebacker positions at the NFL Combine earlier this month.

Due to his versatility, teams have had a hard time deciding where Peppers fits into their respective schemes and when he should be drafted. A top-ten selection should warrant getting the best collegiate player at their position and a potential superstar. As Lynn stated, he has, “been a superstar his whole life.”

With pick No. 7, Peppers could become the latest star of Los Angeles.
