2. Justin Herbert

Justin Herbert still has his doubters for some reason. While there definitely are not any Charger fans who are still doubting Herbert, there is this caution among some NFL pundits to buy into Herbert.

Some predict a sophomore slump, saying that the numbers Herbert put up last season are unsustainable. It definitely is a minority, but Herbert still has his doubters.

He has not really gotten a chance to prove those doubters wrong in the preseason, either. There have been some great highlights in camp but it is easy to dissect those as he is going against the same defense every day and is not getting hit.

With no preseason games for Herbert either, these practices give Charger fans a chance to sit back, watch Herbert do Herbert things and continue to praise him as one of the best young quarterbacks in the game.

He gave Charger fans plenty to gloat about in this one. Whether it was deep connections with Keenan Allen and Donald Parham or an absolute dime to Austin Ekeler in one-on-one drills, Herbert was making nearly every throw perfectly on Thursday.

This guy is special. You did not need me to tell you that but days like Thursday are a nice reminder to those who are still somehow overlooking the reigning Rookie of the Year.
