The Los Angeles Chargers have one of the league’s most complete rosters. That could put many veterans’ in jeopardy of having to look for work elsewhere prior to next season.

The Chargers are ready to make a run, you can feel it. The team had a solid roster entering the draft and in the first four rounds, general manager Tom Telesco chose to bolster the defense with some athletic players who will each add an element of physicality to the defensive side of the ball.

That should then run off on the offense, where Philip Rivers has to feel like this is one of his better chances at getting that elusive ring, despite the devastating loss of Hunter Henry.

The Chargers will open training camp in less than two months and there are going to be several interesting position battles for us to keep our eyes on. There will also be several veteran players who will have to perform at a high level in order for them to be a part of what the team hopes will be tremendous success.

Who are those players and what obstacles will they each have to clear in order to remain part of the team’s future plans? That’s what I intend to delve into here.
