LA Chargers 53-man roster prediction, edge rushers:

  1. Joey Bosa
  2. Uchenna Nwosu
  3. Chris Rumph
  4. Kyler Fackrell

This is going to be a big year for Joey Bosa. He is entering the first year of his massive new contract with the LA Chargers and has a new defensive-minded head coach that is going ot put him in every possible position to succeed.

Bosa was already elite before but he ironically never reached the full ceiling that was possible with his talent. If he is ever going to reach that full potential and win the Defensive Player of the Year it is going to start now with Brandon Staley as his head coach.

This is also a big year for Uchenna Nwosu, who is more suited to be an edge rusher in a 3-4 defense and is going to finally get his chance to start. There is still the chance of the team bringing back Melvin Ingram, but if they do, Nwosu should still be the starter.

The depth behind those two has potential. Chris Rumph had some really good moments in the pass rush in college but is shaky at best against the run and inconsistent. Personally, he reminds me a lot of Jerry Tillery. Although a different position, Tillery’s tape showed the same outlook.

Kyler Fackrell is a good depth option and is going to contribute on special teams as well. He very well could be third in line in front of Rumph depending how camp goes.
