Several top tight ends highlight the best remaining players heading into the second day of the NFL draft.

The second round of the 2023 NFL draft kicks off this evening at 4:00 p.m. PT with plenty of notable and instant-impact players ready and waiting to hear their name called.

Here’s a short list of players I believe are the best remaining names entering day two:

Best Available Players

  • CB Joey Porter Jr., Penn State
  • TE Michael Mayer, Notre Dame
  • QB Will Levis, Kentucky
  • OG O’Cyrus Torrence
  • EDGE Keion White, Georgia Tech
  • CB Cam Smith, South Carolina
  • C John Michael-Schmitz, Minnesota
  • LB Drew Sanders, Arkansas
  • DL Adetomiwa Adebawore, Northwestern
  • TE Sam LaPorta, Iowa
  • OG Steve Avila, TCU
  • OT Dawand Jones, Ohio State
  • CB Julius Brents, Kansas State
  • TE Darnell Washington, Georgia
  • OT/G Cody Mauch, North Dakota State
  • RB Zach Charbonnet, UCLA

The Chargers could go in a number of routes with their two picks today but I can’t help but get the sense they’ll lean towards the defensive side of the ball after they incurred a plethora of injuries on that side of the ball in 2022. They need an edge rusher, a free safety, and potentially another corner if J.C. Jackson isn’t ready to go by the start of the season.

With plenty of names at a number of positions of need, the Chargers have an excellent chance of landing players who should make an impact in their first years in with the Bolts.
