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.
