4. Jamaree Salyer

The LA Chargers drafted Jamaree Salyer in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft and it was instantly viewed as a steal. Salyer was one of the most polished blockers in the SEC last season and showcased the versatility to play both guard and tackle.

Salyer is a guard at the NFL level and he has looked really good both in camp and in the preseason games. While he is not going to start this season, he may have already surpassed Brenden Jaimes on the depth chart.

Salyer is someone who provides quality depth in case of emergency (no more Senio Kelemete games) while being a potential starting option in the future.

3. Isaiah Spiller

Isaiah Spiller has had moments where he looks really polished and looks ready to take on the job of being the RB2 and he has also had times where he looks like a rookie that is still getting used to the speed of the game at the NFL level.

To make matters worse, Spiller is currently dealing with an injury that could hold him out of Week 1 and expose the Chargers' lack of depth at running back fairly early on. The hope is that he can quickly recover from the injury and it won't hinder his production once he is back.

Spiller could easily climb to no. 1 on this list throughout the season because of his role and how important he could be to the offense but he has to earn it.
