LA Chargers: Predicting the top 25 players in 2020 by PFF grade
By Jason Reed
LA Chargers top 25 players, number 21-19:
21. C Mike Pouncey, 68-69
Mike Pouncey had a really bad grade on PFF last season as he only played 305 snaps because of injury. Pouncey clocked in at a 58.2 rating, which is undoubtedly going to be improved upon with health no longer being an issue.
However, I do think that the days of Pouncey being a legitimate above-average center at the end of the year. He will bounce back with a solid year that will be good enough to keep the starting job, but will be nothing special.
20. S Nasir Adderley, 69-70
Nasir Adderley is going to share time with Rayshawn Jenkins at the second safety position when both players are healthy. I really like Adderley as a full-time safety and a ball-hawking threat but I do think we are one year away from seeing the best version of him after battling injuries in his rookie year.
Adderley had a really bad 42.6 grade in his limited time last year and I think he will start to build on that this year.
19. RB Justin Jackson, 70-71
Justin Jackson had a PFF grade of 84.4 last season, so this might seem like a massive drop. However, the sample size is really small and that will begin to even out as he becomes more of a feature in the offense.
Jackson has always shown a lot of potential but the problem has been keeping him on the field. I think he stays healthy in 2020 and is tangible as Austin Ekeler’s backup.
