Justin Ellis, DT, Louisiana Tech
A large hole on the defensive line still lingers for the Chargers, but what type of player will they be targeting? Do they want a run-clogger, a pass-rusher or someone who can do both? I like Ellis as a run-stuffing nose tackle in the 3-4 scheme.
Dontae Johnson, DB, North Carolina State
Johnson has experience at safety, corner and slot corner from his time at North Carolina State. On top of his versatility, he also stands 6'2" and runs a 4.45—a killer combination in the secondary.
Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers
Coleman stands 6'6" and is built like a tight end, but imagine that combo in a vertical passing game with the likes of Philip Rivers. It's been a while since Rivers has had a big target, and I'm sure he misses the jump-ball offense.
Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina
A former basketball player for the Gamecocks, Ellington is just 5'9" but his measured vertical jump at the combine was an eye-opening 39.5 inches. Let him work in the slot next to Keenan Allen but don't hesitate to toss it up high.
De'Anthony Thomas, RB/WR, Oregon
This could be San Diego's chance to add speed on offense. Don't be fooled by Thomas' 4.5 40-yard dash time at the combine. His game speed is a lot faster.
