Chargers pick Delaware safety in second round
The Los Angeles Chargers selected Delaware safety Nasir Adderley with the 60th overall pick in the second round Friday night, giving them someone to pair with Derwin James in the secondary.
James made an instant impact last season at strong safety and was an Associated Press All-Pro selection. The Chargers didn’t have a true free safety, however.
Jahleel Addae started all 18 games at free safety last season but was released, mainly because he was better suited as a strong safety.
Rayshawn Jenkins and Jaylen Watkins are unproven.
Adderley, who had 11 interceptions in his college career, is Delaware’s highest-drafted player since Joe Flacco went 18th overall to Baltimore in 2008.
