This Los Angeles Chargers offseason has been, and will continue to be dominated by new head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Everything this team has done and is going to do will be about Harbaugh's preferences and efforts to get this team where it should be.

One thing remains a constant even with the change: Justin Herbert is the guy.

So, as the Chargers go further into the offseason, what's their draft plan like? There are a lot of holes needing filling. But, in our latest mock, we give the offense no excuses.

Rome Odunze. 1. Rome Odunze. . WR. player. 521. . . Rome Odunze

With the no. 5 overall pick, the Chargers don't mess around. Los Angeles has already seen two quarterbacks and the top two wide receivers go, and the next-best player on their board is Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze.

Chargers fans might be scared off from the Quentin Johnston rookie experiment last season, but Odunze is a different breed. We knew Johnston had some major question marks even as a first-round talent. Odunze, on the other hand, is as complete a guy you'll find not named Harrison or Nabers.

The 6-foot-3 wide receiver has enough mass and strength to carry his frame very well, but pairs that with long speed. His ability to track and catch the deep ball is as impressive as his talent after the catch. If he's not making the big play on a deep ball, Odunze is doing it after the catch, by himself.

Top-tier footwork, route running, anticipation and hands are all here for Odunze. This is the Chargers' new WR1 of the future.
