3. The Chargers draft at least two players from Michigan

Harbaugh is coming off his best season as a head coach at the collegiate level as he was able to reach the mountaintop with the Michigan Wolverines and win the National Championship. Michigan was loaded with talent this past season, a lot of which will be in the 2024 NFL Draft.

There is a long list of Michigan players who will be drafted in April and with direct connections to all of them you better believe that Harbaugh is going to potentially look to reunite with players that make sense on the Chargers.

Harbaugh did not draft any players from Stanford in his first season with the 49ers. In fact, Harbaugh had a pretty public feud with Richard Sherman, who was drafted in the fifth round that year and did not have a great relationship with Harbaugh at Stanford.

There are no feuds this time around and if there were ever a time to draft Michigan players it is this year. Harbaugh and the Chargers won't just take one Michigan player, though, as the table is set for the team to take at least two.

There are simply too many players on Michigan that fit direct needs that the Chargers have. Blake Corum could provide running back depth, Roman Wilson could provide wide receiver depth, Drake Nugent could be the answer at center. Heck, even linebacker Junior Colson and cornerback Mike Sainristril make sense for the Chargers.

There is too much overlap to ignore and for that reason, it is safe to assume that Harbaugh will reunite with at least two of his Michigan players in Los Angeles.
