COSTA MESA Michael Schofield Color Rush Jersey , Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers hope they have found a free safety to pair with All-Pro Derwin Jamesasir Adderley with the 60th overall pick in the second round Friday night. They concluded the night by taking offensive tackle Trey Pipkins of Sioux Falls with the 91st overall pick in the third round.Los Angeles came into the draft with their two biggest needs being defensive tackle and safety, which it was able to fill in the first two rounds with Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery and Adderley.“The draft has kind of gone as advertised,” general manager Tom Telesco said. “I can’t complain. It has been pretty good so far.”Adderley was considered by many to be the highest-ranked safety in this year’s draft class but was the fourth one to come off the board. That was just fine for Telesco, who had Adderley in for a pre-draft visit.“All I was telling people after my visit was how it was a perfect fit and how I enjoyed my meetings with the coaching staff,” Adderley said.James made an instant impact last season at strong safety and was an All-Pro selection. The Chargers did not have a true free safety last season.Jahleel Addae started all 18 games at free safety last season but was released before free agency started. The biggest reason the Chargers released him was that he was better suited as a strong safety.Rayshawn Jenkins and Jaylen Watkins also can play free safety, but both are unproven.“The free safety spot is wide open. The starter is no longer here,” Telesco said. “Nasir was a player that we really coveted. His range is excellent and he has a good combination of foot speed and instincts.”Adderley was a four-year starter at Delaware. He had 87 tackles last season along with four interceptions and seven passes defensed. He played cornerback his first two seasons before switching to free safety.Adderley said he patterns his game after Baltimore’s Earl Thomas, whom Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley knows very well. Bradley was Seattle’s defensive coordinator during Thomas’ first three seasons (2010-12) with the Seahawks.“Once I went to free safety, everything started clicking Tyrell Williams Color Rush Jersey ,” he said. “I think I add physicality and competitiveness.”Adderley, who had 11 interceptions during his college career, is the highest-drafted player from Delaware since Joe Flacco went 18th overall to Baltimore in 2008. The Blue Hens have had three players drafted since Flacco, but one went in the fourth round and the other two were selected in the fifth round.Adderley is the cousin of Pro Football Hall of Famer Herb Adderley, who won three Super Bowl titles with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys.“He helped me tremendously by being a positive role model. I don’t know where I would be without him,” Nasir Adderley said.Pipkins is only the second player from Division II Sioux Falls to be drafted. The first was punter Brian Hansen, whom New Orleans took in the ninth round in 1984.Despite coming from a small school, Pipkins played in the East-West Shrine Game and was invited to the scouting combine. He was interviewed by Telesco and the coaching staff during the combine.“I had heard a lot of fourth-round stuff. I was kind of expecting tomorrow,” said Pipkins. “My agent had said — because a lot of teams had fourth round on me — if somebody really wants me that they would have to take me in the third round.”Pipkins started at left tackle his final three years at Sioux Falls and Telesco said he has the traits to be a left tackle in the NFL.“There are some players at Division II and Division III who can dominate but not have enough athletic traits to play at this level Derek Watt Color Rush Jersey ,” Telesco said. “He has NFL size and feet. There’s a lot to work with.”Los Angeles goes into the draft’s final day on Saturday still looking to build depth at linebacker and the offensive line. Several days ago, the front-of-house guys here at SB Nation put out there version of a "what-if?" scenario where they went back and drafted the 2018 draft class over again after knowing what we..."Several days ago, the front-of-house guys here at SB Nation put out there version of a “what-if?” scenario where they went back and drafted the 2018 draft class over again after knowing what we know now almost a year later.Of course, it’s no surprise that Derwin James went off the board long before he got close to #17. In this re-draft, the Cleveland Browns decided to jump on the All-Pro safety with the 4th-overall pick instead of cornerback Denzel Ward, who also went on to have one of the best individual seasons among 2018 rookies.Here’s what they had to say about the pick:As the re-draft went on, guys like Darius Leonard (the Rookie Defensive Player of the Year) and Leighton Vander Esch went a number of picks higher, being the first two linebackers off the board. Due to this change, consensus top linebacker prospect heading in to the draft Travis Benjamin Color Rush Jersey , Roquan Smith, fell easily to the Chargers at pick #17.Here’s what they had to say about this turn-of-events:Hindsight is 20/20 but Smith landing in LA would’ve been just as amazing were it to have actually happened this time last year. In his first season in Chicago, Smith led the team in total tackles with 121. He also added in five sacks and an interception, to boot. Take your pick of James or Smith, but I believe either one is going to end up being a future all-pro for years to come.What do you guys think of the re-draft? Would you still be excited about this pick?
