1. Andre Dillard

Andre Dillard has not been the Philadelphia Eagles' answer at left tackle and that has prompted many to question his future with the team. The Eagles are reportedly receiving phone calls about Dillard once more and while there are no concrete reports saying that the team will trade him, every player has a price and the Chargers could be willing to pay that price.

That price is probably a pick in the second day of the 2022 NFL Draft, meaning that the Bolts would likely have to part ways with at least a third-round pick in order to trade for Dillard. While that is a pretty high pick to trade, it would give the Bolts more versatility on the offensive line.

The Chargers could do one of two things with Dillard. The team could either attempt to move him over to right tackle to improve on Storm Norton and give the team someone who can anchor the position for now and the future. Dillard is under contract for one more season and could sign an extension with LA.

Or the team could move him to guard, which is where he has been working out with the Eagles. Oday Aboushi is out for the rest of the year with a torn ACL and the guard depth is rather thin. Dillard at guard is not a bad option, either.

Regardless, he would make the offensive line better. The one hang-up is the fact that he is only under contract for two more years and the Chargers would have to commit to paying him after next season. However, the team would be getting someone who they know is polished, allowing them to spend the first two picks in the 2022 NFL Draft on other positions.
