There are more positions of need for the Chargers in this class, such as linebacker and running back, but not to the extent that the prior mentioned positions need to be addressed.

Running back might be a need on some lists for the Los Angeles Chargers, but I genuinely believe that Justin Jackson and Austin Ekeler will be a lethal combo. I also trust the Chargers to find a runner in undrafted free agency to pick up and develop in a similar way that they did with Ekeler and Branden Oliver.

Linebacker is another need for some, but Drue Tranquill developed really well in 2019, and new Charger Nick Vigil is no joke. You also have Denzel Perryman, who if anything, can still shoot gaps better than any backer on this team, and Kyzir White, who is by far the best cover linebacker the Chargers have.

The last need I can think of is Tight End, but the addition of Donald Parham could alleviate that slightly and allow the team a little time to take one later for insurance in the case that Henry continues to miss games.

Next. All offense mock draft

This roster is closer than some admit, and if these needs are filled appropriately, you could see this Los Angeles Chargers team on the rise heading into the 2020 season.
