Grading the Chargers 2016 NFL Draft: It may still be too soon to say

Grading the Chargers 2016 NFL Draft: It may still be too soon to say

Most people accept that grading an NFL Draft immediately after it occurs is unavoidable, but pretty much everyone also rightly thinks the exercise is futile in nature and frankly not worth much. Looking back on a draft after three years, while less fair in some ways thanks to the benefit of hindsight, is significantly more useful. The Athletic’s Dan Brugler recently decided to do just that and reviewed the haul of each team’s 2016 NFL Draft. In Brugler’s own words: The narrative on the players from the 2016 draft class will continue to change, but three full seasons in the NFL is...

Should the Chargers hand Melvin Gordon an extension?

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon is entering the final year of his contract with the team.

How improved do you think the Chargers defense is from this offseason?

How improved do you think the Chargers defense is from this offseason?

The 2019 Los Angeles Chargers (save a late signing and eventual cuts) are now in place. And defensively, they have made some big changes. They were already one of the National Football League’s best units. They ranked 8th in Football Outsiders’ DVOA (7th if you prefer the weighted variety), were 9th in yards allowed per game, and were 8th in points allowed per game. They made an enormous addition by subtraction move in letting go of safety Jahleel Addae early in the offseason. They added one of the top free safety prospects from the NFL Draft by snagging Nasir Adderley of Delaware in...

Your daily dose of Los Angeles Chargers news & notes from around the web. The bell cow report: The running backs with the highest fantasy stock based on workload - Scott BarrettGordon has ranked fifth, sixth, and fifth among running backs in fantasy points per game over the past three seasons. However, he wasn’t as much of a bell cow last year as he was in 2017. Austin Ekeler saw a more robust workload last year, and given Ekeler’s efficiency (he was PFF’s sixth-highest-graded running back last year) and Gordon’s injury history, I do expect that trend to continue. I’d bet Gordon...

2019 Chargers UDFA Profile: Pitt LB Elijah Zeise

When the linebacker group started shaping up as one of the weaker positions on the team, the Chargers went to work on increasing the depth and versatility of the players in that room once the offseason arrived. One of their few signings during the early parts of free agency was the addition of 15-year veteran Thomas Davis, who is also the lone defensive player left from the 2005 NFL Draft. During this year’s draft, the Chargers selected a pair of linebackers on Day 3 in Notre Dame’s Drue Tranquil and Houston’s Emeke Egbule. Then, when it came to the undrafted free agent frenzy, the...
