5. Breiden Fehoko

Breiden Fehoko became a household name for Charger fans after he was highlighted on Hard Knocks while leading the Chargers in the Haka. This was just the tip of the iceberg as Fehoko seems to be a legitimate great team leader and character that will make a difference on the locker room with his presence alone.

The Chargers simply ran out of roster spots and Fehoko did not make the cut. However, not only does he display tremendous character, which is really valued by Anthony Lynn, but he plays a potentially thin position and could be called up at any point.

The defensive tackle position is an interesting one for the Chargers. Linval Joseph was a really good addition, but outside of that, there are more questions than answers.

The team does have former first-round pick Jerry Tillery but he looked pretty bad in his rookie season and could be used more on the outside. The team has solid depth option in Justin Jones and Damion Square, but nothing that really moves the needle.

Fehoko should be called up the second that someone underperforms and should get his fair chance at making a difference on the defensive line. He had a lot of success in college as a brute nose tackle and at the very least could be a strong, big body to put inside in running downs.

I like that he is a red-shirt freshman because he has an extra year of college experience and his character shows me that he is a workhorse that will continue to strive to get better.

Game-by-game 2020 season prediction. Next

Fehoko will get his chance at some point this season and I would not be surprised if he turns some heads in the process.
