Charg­ers pick Delaware safety in sec­ond round

The Tribune (SLO) - - Weather -

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.
