On the other hand, the Chargers could seek to fortify the depth at wide receiver with a high-potential but lower-floor player. Such a player could be found at a fairly cheap contract in Marcus Johnson.
Marcus Johnson entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent for the Philadelphia Eagles but played last year for the Indianapolis Colts. Johnson is a speedy player who could easily fill the Travis Benjamin role if the Chargers desired another quick player. Johnson ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at his pro day.
Despite being known primarily as a deep threat, plays like the one below demonstrate that Johnson has the hands and instincts that teams want in a receiver.
Johnson could be a sneaky signing that would provide the Chargers with some depth at the receiver position at a cheap price, thus allowing them to draft a receiver as well if they so choose.
