3. Someone other than Joe Reed or K.J. Hill win the WR3 job
The common consensus right now is that one of the rookies between Joe Reed and K.J. Hill will win the WR3 job for the LA Chargers. Like the rest of the article, let’s break down why the common consensus might end up being wrong.
First, as mentioned with Tevi, sheer experience with the team and the schemes (although they are changing) might favor someone like Jalen Guyton over Reed and Hill. Guyton has blazing speed and with so many other weapons in the offense, the team might just want someone with blazing speed in the slot.
Reed and Hill would still get playing time but it is clear, at least for the Chargers, that experience is more valuable in this never-before-experienced training camp.
You could also make the case for Darius Jennings outright winning the job if he looks impressive in camp. Jennings was brought in mostly as a return specialist but he can make things happen with the ball in his hands and if the team wants a possessive WR3 then he could win the job.
It is more likely that one of the rookies win the job (hence why this would be shocking in the first place) but with the uniqueness of this training camp, we cannot fully guarantee that a rookie will win their job outright.
