With players arriving in Indianapolis for the 2020 NFL combine this week, we take a look at five potential first-round targets for the Los Angeles Chargers.

With how secretive the Chargers usually are when it comes to the NFL draft, it will be hard to predict what the team will do come draft day. However, the team has major needs, with quarterback and offensive line being the top priorities. Let’s take a look at five prospects fans should watch at the combine.

Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

This seems to be the most common selection in mock drafts for the Chargers with the sixth pick. Herbert is a big, strong-arm quarterback who can move around the pocket and scramble.

After a strong Senior Bowl week, which resulted in being named the Senior Bowl MVP, Herbert will look to continue to improve his draft stock with his performance at the combine.  One thing that I want to see with Herbert is how he performs with better wide receivers.

In an article by Benjamin Solak of The Draft Network, he highlights some beautiful throws that Herbert made that ended up as an incomplete pass. Herbert also tends to lock onto his first read for too long and this is something I want to see him improve during the combine and his pro day.
