Chris Harris

The Chargers have Casey Hayward on the outside and Desmond King in the slot, but the team needs to look at an upgrade at the cornerback position that is currently held by Michael Davis.

Some fans feel that could be Ohio State’s Jeff Okudah with the No. 6 overall draft pick, but free agency could be another route to go and the top cornerback on the market plays within the division.

Harris is likely not going back to the Denver Broncos and though he will command big money, can you imagine a secondary that includes Hayward, King, Nasir Adderley, Derwin James and Harris? That would be ridiculous.

The Chargers might be a tough sell for Harris after a 5-11 season. They have long been a division rival and Harris likely wants to play for a contender while also getting a big bag of money. But on the flip side of that, perhaps sticking it to his former team and playing them twice a year would be enticing for the cornerback who has been to the Pro Bowl four times.

Even if the Chargers don’t sign Harris, the idea is that the team should shoot for another top-flight cornerback. Other names that are available in addition to Harris and Okudah are Jimmy Smith and Logan Ryan.

The Chargers’ best bet to become a dominant defense is adding this piece.
