The 2022 NFL Draft has come and gone and the LA Chargers have added eight new players to the roster to help bolster the forces for 2022 and beyond. Zion Johnson headlined the class as the 17th overall pick with three defensive backs being taken, the team's RB2 in Isaiah Spiller and more offensive help in Jamaree Salyer and Zander Horvath.

The team also quickly brought in 14 undrafted free agents that will compete for jobs in camp, with a handful making the end of the roster for the 2022 team.

While the Chargers added eight new players in the draft and another 14 via undrafted free agents, there are still positions the team could look to add to in the free-agent market before the season begins. The Bolts still have the salary-cap space to make a cheap signing or two and it may be of best interest for the team.

In fact, there are three positions that the LA Chargers probably should be adding free-agency help.

It might seem like the roster is now well-rounded after the draft but there are still some holes that the team can address in free agency. These roster holes are not super pressing and can be addressed with a cheap free agent signing.

The Chargers may end up addressing each of these positions in free agency before camp begins or they could end up sticking to their guns and being confident in the roster, not adding any free-agent help. Regardless, here are the three positions we would target.
