With the initial burst of free agency coming to a close, the Los Angeles Chargers have arguably been the team that has made the most noise. They clearly had a goal of improving their defense, and they have accomplished this. Through the signings of J.C. Jackson, Sebastian Joseph-Day, and Austin Johnson, this defense will look vastly different next season.
With all of the signings so far being defensive-focused, outside of bringing back veteran quarterback Chase Daniel, the Chargers may rely on the draft to address some of their offensive gaps.
One area in particular that they may try to address early is the guard spot. Before signing two defensive tackles in free agency, there was a case to be made that a player such as Georgia’s Jordan Davis could be the pick at 17. While this is still possible, they now have security at that position that they don't have at guard.
Whether the Chargers choose to use their first-round pick or a later selection, there will be quality guards up for grabs. Each one will bring their own unique skillset to the team and should be able to make an impact fairly quickly.
