Chargers should give Jerry Tillery more snaps with season lost

Chargers rookie Jerry Tillery has had what is potentially the worst rookie season of any first-round selection under Tom Telesco. As it currently stands, Brandon Mebane is just two pressures shy of Tillery’s number despite playing about 30 fewer snaps rushing the passer. Want more bad news? No. 99 is now officially the lowest-graded first-round draft pick of the 2019 NFL Draft class, according to Pro Football Focus. Oh well, maybe the draft class overall wasn’t so great to begin with in the defensive tackle department. How’s this for a kicker: Tillery is 126th out of 126 qualifying interior defenders throughout the entire NFL, says Pro Football Focus.
