Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports – LA Chargers
The LA Chargers have the 13th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and have plenty of roster holes that need to be filled before the start of the 2021 season. The Bolts have filled some of those holes in free agency and could continue to do so with the remaining free agents, but most of the reinforcements will come in the 2021 NFL Draft.
This draft is huge for the Chargers. If the Chargers can have a really solid draft then their chances of being a playoff team skyrocket in 2021. If the Chargers have a poor draft and cannot find players to fill these holes then the holes might be too much for Justin Herbert to overcome.
Striking while the iron is hot and while Herbert is on his rookie contract is massive, making this arguably the most important draft of Tom Telesco’s career.
There are several different routes the LA Chargers can go with the 13th pick.
Before it appeared as if offensive line was the sure-fire pick for the Chargers at 13. However, cornerback is just as pressing of a need and there is also the possibility of the team going best player available.
The fan base is certainly split on what the Chargers should do with the 13th overall pick but one thing is for certain: there are two players that the Chargers should not pick under any circumstance.
At least one of these players should be guaranteed to be on the board at 13 with there being a good possibility that both are available for the Chargers to pick. They should stay away.
