This has been a really exciting offseason for the LA Chargers. The team released new uniforms, which are undoubtedly the best uniforms in all of football, if not American sports, they drafted the quarterback of the future and they added several key impact-player free agents.

There is a lot to get excited about if you are a Charger fan. While it is sad to see Philip Rivers leave and sign with the Indianapolis Colts, it is exciting to welcome this new era of Charger football in a brand-new, multi-billion-dollar stadium.

Right now, the big emphasis on the roster is all of the new toys that Anthony Lynn and co. are going to get to scheme with. Chris Harris, Linval Joseph and Kenneth Murray are three really exciting new faces on the defense while K.J. Hill, Joe Reed, Joshua Kelley and Tyrod Taylor present a completely different outlook on offense.

During this excitement, though, there are LA Chargers who are getting overlooked.

Typically, fans of a particular team will overvalue almost every player on the roster from how good they actually are. Every fan is guilty of doing that and so are Charger fans. However, on the opposite end of the spectrum, sometimes some needs on the roster are overblown and that particular player that is forcing a need gets overlooked.

There are three players that have been vastly overlooked by Charger fans and arguably the rest of the league. This is not to say that these three will be bonafide stars, but they will be better than most fans expect.
