Guard

Starters: Dan Feeney, Michael Schofield

Backups: Forrest Lamp, Cole Toner

Third-string: Spencer Drango, Chris Brown, Koda Martin

This is a position where the Chargers could definitely be better. Is anyone in love with the idea of starting Feeney and Schofield?

The real wild card will be Lamp, who could also play tackle if he can pan out as the player the team hoped it was getting when it drafted him in the second round of the 2017 draft. Since then, he has played in a total of just two games. Between injuries and just being a healthy scratch most of his second season, Lamp just hasn’t worked out.

how much patience does the team have with him?

Because of that fact, look for USC’s Chris Brown and Syracuse’s Koda Martin to each have a decent chance of making the final 53-man roster. There is not great depth at this position and the Chargers will be looking for a consistent player who can hold his own on the interior of the line.

The guard position will be wide open heading into training camp. The team could still peruse the free-agent market or even look for a trade to upgrade this position as well.
