Ladd McConkey named a top-10 candidate for Offensive Rookie of the Year

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Ladd McConkey was drafted into an excellent place with the Chargers and Justin Herbert and has a chance to be very productive as a rookie.

The Chargers chose to address the trenches in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft when they selected top offensive tackle Joe Alt out of Notre Dame. Despite a lot of buildup to the pick potentially being one of the draft’s top wideouts, Jim Harbaugh and his staff decided that the culture change was going to start...

Derwin James lands at No. 83 in NFL’s Top 100 for 2024

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Chargers safety Derwin James comes in at No. 83, down 30 spots from his ranking in the NFL Top 100 from a season ago.

Outside of Khalil Mack’s career year, every other performance went...

Yannick Peterhans-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Farmer worked his way from Lane College to sticking with the Chargers after his rookie season.

Andrew Farmer is a native of Jacksonville, Florida and attended First Coast High School.

Believe it or not, there’s not a ton of information on Farmer on the internet that predates his final two seasons at Lane College so I’m unfortunately limited his path to the NFL prior to that. However, those two seasons we’ve got stats for were VERY...

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Chargers will have a lot of variance in their potential success under Jim Harbaugh in year one.

It’s not a secret that the Chargers may be in for a rude awakening when it comes to their offense in year one under Jim Harbaugh. Gone are both longtime wideouts Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. Gone is touchdown-machine Austin Ekeler.

What’s left are a bunch of young and inexperienced players who are now being asked to take on larger and more pivotal...

Before that happens, we’re predicting the starters for the Chargers base defense which is a traditional 3-4 front under Jesse Minter. The Chargers aren’t going to live in this personnel, but it’s their base stuff and a good starting point for these predictions.

Let’s get into it.
