LA Chargers: Predicting all 16 players on the 2020 practice squad
WR Jeff Cotton
Jeff Cotton was an FCS standout at Idaho. He led all FCS receivers with 8.8 receptions per game while he racked up over 1100 yards and seven touchdowns. Size and strength are strong positives for him, but he also has 4.3 speed. Cotton reminds me a little bit of Andre Patton and could be a stash project for the LA Chargers.
WR Jason Moore
The Chargers needed to bring Jason Moore on to the roster last year, which speaks more to last year’s injury situation than anything else. That being said, Moore is still an interesting receiver prospect with size that the Chargers like when it comes to their receivers. He did have 3000 receiving yards and 39 touchdowns in college.
The fifth receiver spot battle will be interesting between Moore, Jalen Guyton, and the 2020 undrafted free agents on the roster. I tend to think the coaching staff likes Guyton just a little bit more in terms of his speed. Even if Moore doesn’t make the team, he could still make the practice squad. As we saw last year, being the first receiver on the practice squad can lead to the types of opportunities Patton and Moore got last year.
C Cole Toner
Cole Toner is a smart player and has stuck around with the LA Chargers for a while now. He doesn’t have much of a shot to make the roster at all, but he certainly could stick on the practice squad.
Toner does have solid versatility. In a pinch, he could play all the spots on the offensive line, like he has in college and the NFL. Toner just doesn’t have the athleticism or skill to make the last few spots of the 53 man roster. I don’t think he’ll develop more than he already has, but they can still stash him for depth.
