The 2020 NFL Draft has come and gone and the LA Chargers had a fairly decent showing in the draft. They did what they had to do and selected the franchise quarterback of the future in Justin Herbert with the sixth overall pick and shocked the fans by trading back into the first round to draft Kenneth Murray.

While the Chargers lost their third-round pick to move from pick 37 to 23, Murray is a solid prospect and was worth the risk. It would be an even better selection with a good showing in the late rounds.

The Chargers drafted two really exciting wide receivers in Joe Reed and K.J. Hill and shocked fans by going with Joshua Kelley in the fourth round, although Kelley is an explosive back that should fit nicely in the Chargers running game. Alohi Gilman was selected in the sixth as a depth safety and special teams contributor.

The additions were not over after the 2020 NFL Draft for the LA Chargers.

Shortly after the draft, the LA Chargers signed 19 undrafted free agents. That might not seem like a big deal, but keep in mind, Austin Ekeler was an undrafted free agent.

While there could really be a diamond in the rough anywhere in the 19 prospects, there are three, in particular, that stand out to me as players that chance to make the roster, but have a chance to make a difference as well.

Here are the three undrafted free agents that I have circled two times over that I think you should be getting excited about.
