Currently, there are 11 wide receivers on the Chargers’ roster, and only two of these receivers seem to be an absolute lock to make the final 53.

Of the wide receivers currently on the Chargers’ roster, one could very safely assume only Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are on the final 53. Some would say that Dontrelle Inman and Travis Benjamin also have their spots locked down, but the former was just signed, and the latter is inconsistent. Not to mention, the two are closer to 30 than they are to 20, which means something when the skill gap between a guy like Benjamin and a guy like Artavis Scott are not far apart.

All wide receivers will be analyzed through three things. The first being experience, such as age, years in the NFL, career stats and accomplishments, etc. The second being what they’ve shown last year, or this preseason and camp, whether it be a nice route, a good block, or a solid performance. Lastly is projection: What they can bring in the future, their potential, and what role they can play going into 2019. So, in no particular order, here are the wide receivers to watch for going into preseason week four.
