The LA Chargers drafted four rookies on offense in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The LA Chargers made six selections in the 2020 NFL Draft, four of which were on the offensive side of the football and two of which were on the defensive side. This was fitting, as the defense was already being touted as one of the most athletic and talented defenses we have seen the Bolts have in quite some time.

The expectations of the rookies on the offensive side of the ball have been a mixed bag. Typically, if you are solely basing expectations on what other Charger fans think, then you could be expecting too much out of the offensive rookies.

Fans always favor the players on their own team, especially new faces.

While some rookies make that transition seamlessly and become instant contributors in the NFL, most rookies undergo a learning curve. It is important to be patient and have reasonable expectations with the Chargers’ rookies, especially considering that three of the four offensive rookies were late-round selections.

Transitioning to the NFL is not an easy thing and it is going to take some rookies more time than others in order to truly make that leap. Here is are some reasonable expectations for each offensive Charger rookie this season.
