Justin Herbert’s new best friend is Northwestern OL Rashawn Slater Jr., who can play four different offensive line positions.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 30, 2021
The #Chargers stick and pick and take Northwestern OL Rashawn Slater, the top OL available, at No 13. A franchise left tackle. Very clean and very high-ceiling.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 30, 2021
You got to protect the franchise in Justin a Herbert and that’s why I love the @Chargers taking Rashawn Slater. He will be able to play tackle or guard.— Chris Simms (@CSimmsQB) April 30, 2021

Great pick by the Chargers to get a LT that will protect Justin Herbert for years to come. Rashawn Slater is super athletic, great feet and just a MFin dog in the trenches. Oh and he front squats 495 lbs like it’s nothing. pic.twitter.com/EIRQonNr6J— George Balekji (@GeorgeBalekji) April 30, 2021
Rashawn Slater still being here is an amazing twist of luck for the Chargers.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 30, 2021
Northwestern LT Rashawn Slater slipping to 13 is dream scenario for #Chargers.— Evan Silva (@evansilva) April 30, 2021
Penei Sewell & Slater were considered to be in tier of their own in OL class. Drop off after them.
Bolts OL can have big turnaround after signing LG Matt Feiler & C Corey Linsley & stealing Slater.
