5. Los Angeles Chargers - Wide Receiver Malik Nabers, LSU 

A lot of people will be interested in seeing what Jim Harbaugh does in his first NFL draft. With a new GM and the roster having so many issues, they are another team that is in a great trade-down spot. If they are in this current spot, teams will be calling for Drake Maye. If Maye goes four, you have to wonder if Los Angeles would trade out for Marvin Harrison as well. 

Still, as we said, it is so hard to predict a trade. So, in this mock draft, we will continue by taking someone who is going to be gone before the Chicago Bears make their selection. It is hard to see a world where Malik Nabers falls much further. If Drake Maye went four, Nabers would be gone by the sixth pick. 

Nabers has rare speed, but he is also built rather impressively, and he is not as small as the typical burners such as Tyreek Hill and Desean Jackson. Still, his big play impact can hit in the same regard. 

While Harbaugh has said he would go offensive line, the Chargers actually have some talent there. They are depleted at wide receiver. So, expect them to take the best player and fill their biggest need.
