The San Diego Chargers are in a much better position going into the draft this season compared to last season. There still are a few positions of need for this team. Here is what Daniel Jeremiah believe that the Chargers need going into this draft:

t16: San Diego ChargersRecord: 7-7Team needs: CB, OG, OLBAnalysis: The Chargers‘ offensive line has played much better this season, but they could still use an upgrade along the interior. They have spent a lot of picks on pass rushers over the last decade, but they’re still in the market for a difference-maker on the outside.

The secondary is huge going into this draft. We would likely need some help on the interior of the line and that left tackle position still may need to get someone who we can trust to stay on the field.

That is a decent list to start with for the Chargers, but we also need a nose tackle and probably a wide receiver. We will figure out what happens with the team in free agency, but if Donald Butler goes somewhere else, we will need another middle linebacker also.
