Hayes Pullard

Age is a huge asset in the NFL and Pullard is the youngest player on this list. However, he’s also probably the least accomplished.

A seventh-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2015, Pullard did not make the team and was signed to the practice squad before being plucked off just less than two months later by the Jacksonville jaguars.

There, he met Gus Bradley who would become one of his biggest supporters. After the Jaguars cut Pullard, the Chargers claimed him off waivers and the main reason for that was Bradley, who had joined Los Angeles as the team’s defensive coordinator. For Pullard, who attended USC in college, it seemed a perfect fit.

Pullard was a decent reserve linebacker for the team, but not one you would want to rely on long term. He was actually cut prior to the start of the 2018 season but re-signed in October. He was used sparingly, however, and the team likely has enough depth at the position to where they won’t need to call on Pullard in the future.

He’s a marginal player and would only be brought in for depth at this point in his career, but a team could look to add him to a 90-man roster before the season starts.
