LA Chargers who actually deserve a Pro Bowl nod in 2021

LA Chargers offensive linemen who deserve a Pro Bowl nod in 2021:
LT Rashawn Slater
Rashawn Slater has been a godsend for the LA Chargers this season. Slater somehow fell to the 13th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and he has somehow been better than advertised. While we all knew that the Chargers likely got their franchise left tackle, what I didn't expect was for Slater to be a legit All-Pro candidate as a rookie.
Slater probably won't get First-Team All-Pro nods yet but he is certainly in that conversation and undoubtedly deserves a Pro Bowl nod as a rookie. He has been fantastic for the Chargers and has even held up quite nicely against elite pass rushers such as Chase Young and Myles Garrett.
C Corey Linsley
Who would have thought that the LA Chargers would have two Pro Bowl-worthy offensive linemen and we would still be talking about offensive line issues because of the lack of depth? Regardless, Corey Linsley has not disappointed whatsoever and has picked up right where he left off in Green Bay.
The Chargers made him the highest-paid center in NFL history and it has paid off. Having a great center is such an important thing with a young quarterback and the Bolts have one of the best, if not the best, in the game.
Matt Feiler has been good this season but I would not say he is a Pro Bowler. While some Charger fans would probably disagree, there is a lot of good guard talent in the league and just because Feiler has been above-average does not mean he is a Pro Bowler.
Next, let's dive into the defensive players who deserve a Pro Bowl nod.
