2. Interior offensive line

There are three things the LA Chargers have been known for in recent years. One is having a bad offensive line, one is losing close games and the other is having a bad kicker.

The Chargers made it a priority to improve the league's worst offensive line from a year ago and Charger fans should be much happier with the protection that Justin Herbert is getting in 2021.

That being said, I refrain from including the entire offensive line on this list as the tackle position could still be a weak spot. While I believe fully in Rashawn Slater, he is still a rookie that did not play college football last season.

Combine that, Bryan Bulaga's injury risk and the bad depth behind the two starters and tackle could be troubling for the Chargers. If it holds up, then it will be great.

The interior offensive line seems to be a lock to be good for the LA Chargers and could be one of the better units in the entire league. Not only is it talented, but it is four-deep in starting-caliber offensive linemen.

Corey Linsley was the best center in the league last season and even if he is 90% of what he was last season then he is an elite center for the Chargers. Matt Feiler is a quality veteran guard who is certainly above-average and Oday Aboushi has serious signs of potential from last season and in camp.

And if one of Feiler or Aboushi does not pan out the team has Brenden Jaimes, who was really good in the preseason and projects to be a quality member of this offensive line for years to come.
