The LA Chargers have had a mostly exceptional offseason thus far. It started with the team re-signing Mike Williams to a three-year, $60 million contract and nearly every move since then has been fantastic. The Khalil Mack trade was unexpected but very welcomed, only to be overshadowed by the team signing the best cornerback on the market, J.C. Jackson.
Los Angeles also made the great additions of Sebastian Joseph-Day and Austin Johnson, who will shore up the interior defensive line. Gerald Everett will be an improvement over Jared Cook and the team added some special teams reinforcements to continue the overhaul in that phase of the game.
Not everything the Chargers have done has been great, though. The team has missed out on some cheap potential starting right tackles, and more notably, let Kyzir White walk for a painfully low contract that easily could have been afforded.
There are two more mistakes the LA Chargers must avoid that pertain to the 2022 NFL Draft.
While the team still has some salary-cap space to spend in free agency, the next big wave of incoming talent will come from the 2022 NFL Draft. If the Bolts play their cards right, the 2022 NFL Draft could be the icing on the cake to create a true Super Bowl window.
It is important that the Chargers put together a good draft class this offseason, and even more important that the team does not make any crucial errors along the way. Should we expect the decision-making process to be perfect? Absolutely not.
But should they avoid these two mistakes? Absolutely.
