3. Amen Ogbongbemiga goes viral

This might seem like a bold prediction to make about a football game but when the dust settles, LA Chargers linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga is going to have a highlight reel to play from this game that will make it rounds around social media, making him one of the most talked-about players on Monday.

Or so we think.

Charger fans are more than familiar with Ogbongbemiga, who the Chargers signed as an undrafted free agent this year. It started as a joke with his ridiculously hard name to spell but the more fans looked into Ogbongbemiga the more it became clear that there is value in him.

Ogbongbemiga is a special teams player through and through. That is not to say that he does not have a future as a rotational linebacker, but in year one, his snaps are going to be limited to special teams.

However, in the preseason he is going to get a chance to get snaps at the linebacker position and show off his freakish athleticism. He is definitely raw when it comes to coverage and identifying plays but his athleticism truly is jaw-dropping.

Ogbongbemiga is going to have at least two big moments in this game, one on special teams and one on defense. Don't be surprised to see him flying on the SoFi Stadium turf before delivering a massive hit that makes its rounds on social media.

Denzel Perryman was a highlight machine for his massive hits and Ogbongbemiga might be the new person to supply those for the LA Chargers.
