Ranking the top 10 players on the LA Chargers roster after Week 3
By Jason Reed
8. Corey Linsley
The LA Chargers made Corey Linsley the highest-paid center in the league in the offseason and thus far it has paid off. While he has not been as elite as he was last season, it is still very early and it is impossible to be disappointed with what Linsley has provided the team.
Linsley has allowed only three pressures on the quarterback, none of which even turned into a quarterback hit, while also proving to be a solid run-blocker for the LA Chargers.
More importantly, Linsley has established a great relationship with Justin Herbert that has made the offense more dynamic. The Bolts have utilized an up-tempo offense that catches the defense off-guard and it has been effective because of Herbert and Linsley being on the same page.
7. Matt Feiler
Corey Linsley was a bigger signing than Matt Feiler but thus far I would give the slight advantage to Feiler. Feiler has been really good for the Bolts at guard and that is probably part of the reason why the team would rather start Storm Norton at right tackle than move Feiler out wide and bring in someone like Brenden Jaimes to start at guard.
Feiler has been better in run-blocking and while he has allowed more pressures than Linsley, five, he has also had tougher blocking assignments as a guard compared to a center. It is really close and you can really flip-flop these players either way but I have Feiler coming in at seventh.
