LA Chargers 53-man roster predictions, offensive line:
- Starters: Rashawn Slater, Matt Feiler, Corey Linsley, Oday Aboushi, Bryan Bulaga
- Reserves: Trey Pipkins, Brenden Jaimes, Scott Quessenberry, Storm Norton
The offensive line is much better this season than it was last season and there is a lot of potential here for the LA Chargers. If Rashawn Slater is what he could be, Corey Linsley continues to play like he did last season and Bryan Bulaga returns to form then the Chargers will have their three best offensive linemen of the last decade… on the same team.
Of course, that is a lot of ifs and I do suggest that fans are cautious with their expectations. Let’s not pretend like most fans were just as excited last year with the additions of Bulaga and Trai Turner as well as the potential of Trey Pipkins.
There is a much better chance that the offensive line is good in 2021 but it is also easy to see how it won’t be good.
If Bulaga cannot stay healthy/continues to regress with age, Slater has a serious learning curve after not playing in 2020 and Aboushi and Feiler don’t play up to their potential (which is possible, they have had bad moments in their career) then this is still a shaky offensive line.
The depth is not great, either. I really like Brenden Jaimes and he can start for one of the guards if they struggle but Storm Norton, Trey Pipkins and Scott Quessenberry are not depth options that we are writing home about.
