The 2017 NFL Draft has come and gone and training camps are in full swing. The NFL is back with a head of steam. With the first preseason game for Los Angeles’ new resident kicking off on August 13, the Chargers’ front office has time to consider who should make the 53-man squad.

Most of the players seem like obvious locks to make the final roster, but, as with every season, we will most likely see some surprise cuts and additions on the final roster.

The Chargers already began cutting veterans when they released King Dunlap, Brandon Flowers and Stevie Johnson. Are there other expensive veterans the front office could deem replaceable by a younger player with more potential? The Chargers also have the longest streak in the league of having an undrafted free-agent rookie make the team, at 20 years. Who will it be this year?

Yes, it is far too early to tell, what with injuries and players coming out of nowhere, but who doesn’t love a little speculation?
