Jack Conklin

Jack Conklin would have the chance to come onto the Chargers and likely be the best offensive lineman on the team, but certainly an upgrade at the tackle position. The former first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans should receive heavy interest from around the league once free agency starts.

Conklin is a mauler in the run game, and he holds up in pass protection as well. He always uses sound technique as a blocker but he comes from one of the most physical teams in the league in the Titans and if he could bring some of that to Los Angeles and have it start to rub off on the team, that would be ideal.

If the Chargers could sign Conklin and put him at right tackle, they would then have an offensive line that consisted of Conklin, Dan Feeney, Forrest Lamp, Scott Quessenberry and Trey Pipkins, potentially. The team likely needs to try and find an upgrade at the guard spot and perhaps draft another tackle as well, but just removing Trent Scott and Sam Tevi as starters, things already look better.

The mindset as a physical player that imposes his will is what makes Conklin an intriguing player and signing a guy like him could help change the philosophy in Los Angeles.
