Analysis: This is a bit of a surprising pick, as many analysts believed the Chargers would go with an offensive tackle. 

Bosa is as solid as they come, though, and was consistently thought of as a future top-five pick during his time in Columbus. 

There are some questions surrounding the former Buckeyes' star - is his ceiling at a star level - but he's probably one of the least-likely "busts" in the draft.
