Chargers rookie Lamp out for season after torn ACL
- On Wednesday, Los Angeles Chargers second-round pick Forrest Lamp went down at practice with a torn ACL, ending his season. Lamp, who was slated to start at right guard, was PFF’s top-graded offensive tackle in the nation during 2016.
- Lamp has been fantastic at left tackle in the three seasons that PFF has graded him. In 2014, 2015, and 2016, he earned grades of 90.5, 89.6, and 91.7, respectively.
- In three seasons, more than 1,621 pass-blocking snaps, Lamp allowed just 31 total pressures including just three sacks. His pass-blocking efficiency (99.3) in 2016 was first in the country – he allowed just five total pressures including zero sacks.
- The Western Kentucky product was not just dominant in one aspect of the game. His run-block success percentage of 95.0 ranked third in the 2017 draft class.
- With Lamp out, veteran Kenny Wiggins (66.7 overall grade in 2016) and rookie Dan Feeney (86.3 in college) will look to fill in at right guard.
