Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports – LA Chargers
The 2021 NFL Draft is fast approaching and is going to be massive for the LA Chargers. The Bolts have the foundation to be a playoff team with several high-profile stars but they also lack depth in some key areas.
The 13th overall pick a murkier than the sixth overall pick was last year. While some flirted with the idea of Isaiah Simmons, it was quite clear that the Chargers were going to pick the quarterback to succeed Philip Rivers.
This year, the Chargers could go with a tackle, a corner or could flirt with the idea of going best player available. Personally, I want the team to take a tackle. But knowing Tom Telesco’s draft history, it just might be a cornerback.
Regardless, there is certainly a best-case scenario for the Chargers and a worst-case scenario. In fact, I broke down a few weeks ago what the LA Chargers should do if they are braced with the worst-case scenario from picks 1-12.
So what are the best-case scenarios for the LA Chargers in the 2021 NFL Draft?
There are some things that could fall the Chargers way and turn this into a great draft class. Of course, we are going to stay in the realm of possibility when discussing the possible best-case scenarios. You won’t see us projected the Chargers to get a top-10 pick in the second round, or for Kyle Pitts to fall to 13.
Here are the four realistic best-case scenarios for the LA Chargers in the 2021 NFL Draft that you should be rooting for.
