With the 112th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the LA Chargers select: Isaiah Hodgins, WR, Oregon State

The LA Chargers need help in the receiving corps. The team had virtually no production out of the WR3 or WR4 positions last season and they undoubtedly need depth at the position.

It is not like it is a major need, however. While it is a need, it is not one worth spending an early-round pick on, unless someone exciting slips, as the team does still have Keenan Allen and Mike Williams to go along with Austin Ekeler and Hunter Henry as pass-catching weapons.

The Chargers need someone who can bank off of the talent that is already on the roster and thrive that way and they would get just that in Isaiah Hodgins.

Hodgins is not a lightning-quick receiver that is going to burn linebackers and slot corners, instead, he is someone who possesses great hands, is a great playmaker on the ball and is a great route runner.

As a WR1 or WR2 in the NFL he would struggle right away. He does not have the athleticism nor the NFL experience to thrive against the best corners that a team has to offer. However, as a secondary target with the attention on the rest of the receiving corps, Hodgins would be fantastic.

He has reliable hands and can make plays on the ball, that is all the Chargers really need out of the position.
