Delaware safety Nasir Adderley was considered by many the top small school prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft.
After sliding a bit, the Senior Bowl standout was snatched up at pick No. 60 by Anthony Lynn and the Los Angeles Chargers.

Adderley was dominant at Delaware, showing off a remarkably refined skillset. He has the speed to play man coverage, physicality to cover tight ends, and the hitting ability to be a force in the run game.
He stood out at the Senior Bowl, where his skill set caught the eyes of several NFL scouts. Apparently, the Chargers were captivated by Adderley.
With Derwin James on the other side of him, it's really easy to argue the Chargers have the best secondary in the league.
The jump from FCS to NFL competition is always cavernous, but Adderley has more than enough talent to make it work. Another shrewd move for Adderley and the Chargers.
