Summary

The Chargers' 2017 free safety, Tre Boston, wasn't re-signed, and James looks like the clear frontrunner to step into the lineup. A surprise draft-day slider, he's widely considered a franchise-cornerstone type of defensive back. James is ideally a strong safety, with great size and run-tracking skills, but was exceptionally stingy in coverage opportunities at Florida State. He shouldn't have much trouble winning the majority of FS snaps, though he may not lock down enough to make him a prime target in IDP drafts. He's best approached as an upside DB3 unless he makes a serious move in camp. (May 22)
