The LA Chargers had some exciting picks in the 2020 NFL Draft that will challenge the current job status of some players.

The LA Chargers had a fairly interesting showing in the 2020 NFL Draft. Despite the team taking the most likely and expected player in Justin Herbert with the sixth overall pick, the front office still managed to surprise the fans.

That is because the team traded its second and third-round picks to move back into the first round to select Oklahoma linebacker, Kenneth Murray. This definitely was not something that was heavily expected.

After no activity because of no picks on the second day of the draft, the Chargers followed up with an exciting day three, making three of their four selections at skill positions. The team added a running back in Joshua Kelley and two wide receivers in Joe Reed and K.J. Hill.

The roster is deeper now than it was in the draft and while we are all looking forward to the positives that these rookies will bring to the table, they will also bring some negatives for some players already on the roster.

Here are three players whose jobs are in jeopardy after the 2020 NFL Draft. These players will need to fight for their role on the team and even if they keep a similar role, could see less playing time than before.
