Los Angeles Chargers draft picks 2022: Round-by-round selections

USA TODAY

Here is a 2022 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Los Angeles Chargers:

Round 1 (No. 17 overall) - Zion Johnson, OG, Boston College: Strong as an ox (combine-high 32 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press) but with light feet, Johnson can line up at guard or tackle. Whether he goes inside or mans right tackle opposite last year's first-rounder, stellar LT Rashawn Slater, budding superstar QB Justin Herbert and an offense that likes to sling the rock are thankful beneficiaries.

Round 3 (79) - JT Woods, S, Baylor: Another Baylor blazer (4.36 speed), look for him to sub in on passing downs given he's also a pretty good ball hawk (8 INTs over the past two seasons). Draft tracker
