Chargers draft a tight end with a massively high ceiling

. 54. 516. . . Tight End. Luke Musgrave. player

Luke Musgrave is another prospect that could shoot up the draft boards and not be available for the Chargers in the second round. Six weeks ago and Musgrave looked like a third or fourth-round selection but he has crept his way into the top-50 conversation and the Chargers should hope that he stays there and doesn't continue to climb.

In terms of ceiling, Musgrave might be the most exciting tight end in this entire class. He is an explosive six-six pass-catcher tight end that would add a vertical threat to the tight end room for Moore to utilize like Dalton Schultz.

The problem with Musgrave is his injury history and lack of experience in college. Everything about Musgrave pops off the screen but there are going to be injury concerns that could lead to him falling down to the Chargers at 54. If so, we know that Tom Telesco historically picks the best player available and Musgrave certainly would be that.

The Chargers have been known to take Senior Bowl standouts and Musgrave certainly was that. Adding him as a weapon in this offense would do wonders for Justin Herbert, as long as he can stay on the field.

This also opens the door for a potential Gerald Everett trade. While the team could run a tight end room of four people (Donald Parham is a restricted free agent but should return), the team would benefit more from trading Everett for a day three pick and freeing up cap space as a result.

If Parham doesn't come back then that is out of the picture, but it is a possibility as Musgrave could arguably be more impactful than Everett as early as year one.
