Some areas of the LA Chargers depth chart are weaker than others.
These articles, which take a more negative approach, often garner more feedback and criticism as being negative about the Chargers is not something the fans (or we) like to do. However, there is an obvious hierarchy on the depth chart and it would be unfair to do the strongest but not the weakest.
Just because a position group is on this list does not mean it is bad, either. In fact, the fact that some of these positions are even on this list is a good thing as it shows just how well-rounded the Chargers depth chart is heading into 2020.
Weakest areas of the LA Chargers depth chart: #5 Tight end
Case in point: the tight end position. The LA Chargers have one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the entire league in Hunter Henry but when we break down the overall group of tight ends, compared to the rest of the roster, then it is clear that they deserve to sneak into this weakest list.
Virgil Green is a veteran blocking specialist who thrives in his blocking role but does not offer much outside of that. Donald Parham is an exciting tight end prospect from the XFL but until he proves it in the NFL we cannot deem his success as a guarantee. Stephen Anderson and Andrew Vollert are both unexciting depth options.
The Chargers are one Hunter Henry injury away from the tight end group looking pretty bleak, but with Henry healthy, there should be no issues whatsoever with the tight ends.
Again, the fact that the tight ends make the bottom five, with how good Henry is, just shows how well-rounded the Chargers depth chart is.
