The Los Angeles Chargers have one of the NFL’s most complete rosters, but no roster is perfect from top to bottom.

The Chargers have one of the game’s top leaders in Philip Rivers, a strong running game and one of the league’s top wide receivers. Throw in the fact that Hunter Henry will be returning to the field this year and this team should be able to move the ball up and down the field.

Defensively, the team might be even better than when they have the ball thanks to a solid draft that brought in Jerry Tillery and Nasir Adderley. Adding those two exciting rookies to a group that includes Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram and Derwin James makes for a unit that is equipped with several players that can wreck a game plan.

The Chargers are now in the evaluation process of exactly what they have on their 90-man roster. Training camp and preseason games will help determine the best 53 players to keep, but the team can always keep an eye out for players who could come in and serve as an upgrade.

The Chargers have a championship window that is wide open. That was the case last season as well, but the New England Patriots exposed them in the divisional playoffs. Has the team sewn up those holes?

Here, we will take a look at some positions that could be considered a weakness for this team as it begins a new trek toward the Lombardi Trophy.
