The Chargers have a number of exciting rookies from their 2019 draft class, but who has been the best of them all through two games?
The Chargers’ 2019 draft class is as follows:
- Jerry Tillery, Defensive Tackle
- Nasir Adderley, Free Safety
- Trey Pipkins, Offensive Tackle
- Drue Tranquill, Linebacker
- Easton Stick, Quarterback
- Emeke Egbule, Outside Linebacker
- Cortez Broughton, Defensive Tackle
Some have been positive parts of their respective units thus far, while others have been nothing but disappointments. And some, if not most of the class, have been a mixture of both.
Chargers seventh-ranked rookie: Trey Pipkins
It’s a shame every Chargers fan who has followed the team under Tom Telesco expected a terrible reach in the third round, but it’s even more disappointing that every single one of them was right. Pipkins, for what it’s worth, is not expected to start this season. No one expected him to start this season, and no one assumes he would be NFL-ready after playing college at Sioux Falls. He’s a project, and given time, he can improve. There’s not a single Chargers fan who doesn’t want Pipkins to become something special. Unfortunately:

Pipkins doesn’t look the part right now, and that’s fine. But it doesn’t help him on a list like this, and for everything seen from him thus far, he’s in last place.
