Today’s April Fools’ Day, and you’d think that’s what ESPN’s Todd McShay was going for in his latest two-round mock draft.

In this scenario, his sees the top offensive lineman, former Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell taking a major landslide all the way down to the Chargers at pick No. 13.

How on earth does this happen?

McShay has Sewell’s dropping out of the top-10 following a run on quarterbacks (four of the first 11 selections) and receivers (four selected between picks four and eight) in the top-10 picks.

In reality, it’s hard to see Sewell getting past the Bengals at No. 5, who are in need of a blindside blocker for quarterback Joe Burrow. However, if this came to fruition, it would be a home run selection for Los Angeles.

Sewell, who blocked for QB Justin Herbert for two seasons, is an elite pass protector and physically imposing run-blocker, who would give the Bolts immediate and long-term help at the left tackle position.

McShay sees former Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey as the ideal compliment to Sewell with their next pick.

The Chargers signed All-Pro center Corey Linsley, so Humphrey wouldn’t be able to play his natural position. However, he would be able to compete for a starting guard spot with Oday Aboushi.
