2017 NFL Mock Draft: Who Will Your Favorite Team Select?

7. Los Angeles Chargers – Jamal Adams – S – LSU


San Diego’s secondary blew away any expectations set for them last year with some stellar overall play. Free agent acquisition Casey Hayward had a breakout season reaching the Pro Bowl, and young standout Jason Verrett should be back and ready to go after knee surgery. After Eric Weddle’s departure, LA needs to fill the void at safety and Adams seems like a solid fit. He’s a great tackler that can play either safety spot effectively. An already talented Chargers defense has the chance to add yet another piece to the puzzle.

8. Carolina Panthers – Taco Charlton – DE – Michigan


The Panthers would have loved for Leonard Fournette to slip to them, but Carolina will settle for the talented defensive end from Michigan. Charlton has great size (6’6”, 273 lbs) to go along with his length and elite pass-rushing skills. He had a team-leading 10 sacks last season and with a sub-5.0 40 time, he will be great for the Panthers’ defense.
