The LA Chargers have been fairly active in free agency this offseason. While the team has lost some notable players to free agency, it also has improved the worst area of the roster by a landslide. There is still work to do, but the offensive line is one that we can actually be optimistic about.

Corey Linsley was the crown jewel signing of the offensive line and the Chargers made him the highest-paid free-agent center in NFL history. Alongside Linsley, the Chargers brought in Matt Feiler and Oday Aboushi on really great value contracts.

Feiler’s best work has come at left guard and he allowed fewer pressures at the position last season than Joe Thuney. Aboushi looked really good in eight starts for the Detroit Lions last season and has the potential to be a quality starting guard for the Bolts.

The team also brought in Kyler Fackrell to be a rotational edge rusher and Jared Cook to replace the hole left behind by Hunter Henry. Michael Davis was also re-signed, which was huge for the team.

We now have a better idea of who the LA Chargers will select with the 13th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

While the situation has not changed much, it has changed and the most-likely prospect that the Chargers may pick is different than who it was three weeks ago. There are four prospects we should keep an eye on. Here are the four ranked by likelihood to be picked by the Bolts at 13.
