The San Diego Chargers have suffered some disappointing losses this season, but defeating the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football may be exactly what they needed in order to turn things around.

There is no doubt that the Chargers have been incredibly unfortunate in terms of injuries, but if we look at the glass half-full, we should be talking about how well this year’s rookie class has played.

Prior to the 2016 NFL draft, it was no secret that general manager Tom Telesco needed to hit a home run with his selections. Through six weeks of the season, it appears that he has done that.

Now that Joey Bosa has ended his holdout and joined the team, he looks like an incredible player. But most of the rest of the class looks like they will contribute for years as well.

Here, we are going to take the first six games of the season into consideration and see how each rookie has played to this point this season. We’ll also talk about their future prospects as it relates to this season and future seasons in San Diego.

By the time you’re doing reading this, you’ll likely agree that this is Telesco’s best draft class…. by far.
