- Cardale Jones, Quarterback
- Drue Tranquill, Linebacker
- Artavis Scott, Wide Receiver
Winner: Drue Tranquill, Linebacker
Scott by a million miles has been the team’s most productive receiver this preseason racking up twice as many yards (188) and receptions (12) as the next wide receiver, Andre Patton. In fact, his 188 yards are more than the next three receivers (Patton, Malachi Dupre, and Mike Williams) have combined. He has to make the roster at this point, right?
It’s tough not to give this one to Jones, who recently has been on fire and looking like a completely different NFL quarterback. Unfortunately, his first game wasn’t his best (still a 90.3 rating, somehow) and it drags his chances of winning MVP down a bit.
This one goes to Tranquill, who was good at the beginning of the preseason and got even better by the end of the preseason. He’s been the leader of the defense, and possibly the only player from the front seven always actively engaged in run support. Jones may have had an overall greater impact on the preseason, but Tranquill has been the Chargers’ best player.
That’s it for the preseason awards, and that’s all there is left to cover of the preseason heading into Week One of the regular season. It’s been fun to watch the Chargers’ reserve players for four weeks now, but it’s time to bring in the big guns. Give me Joey Bosa, Keenan Allen, and some Philip Rivers. Bring it on, Colts.
