The Chargers have a pretty good roster that is ready to compete for a playoff spot. How could they fill their remaining holes in the 2020 NFL Draft?

The Los Angeles Chargers are one of the harder teams to project to how good they are going to be in 2020. They have a young, talented defense to go along with some very good skill position players on offense. That said, they do still have plenty of holes they could stand to address in the 2020 NFL Draft to really set themselves up to compete for a playoff spot next year.

The big question mark is at quarterback. After losing out on Tom Brady, the Chargers chose to pass on talented free agents Cam Newton and Jameis Winston. They have chosen to move forward with Tyrod Taylor as their current starter. While he may be the starting quarterback to start 2020, Taylor is obviously not the long-term answer. It would be a surprise if the Chargers didn’t address the quarterback position with their first pick in the draft.

There are plenty of other positions that need to be addressed on the Chargers outside of quarterback. Namely, the left tackle position after trading away Russell Okung to get Trai Turner. They did make a great acquisition by signing Bryan Bulaga in free agency, but he has played right tackle his entire career and would benefit from staying on that side of the offensive line. After those priorities, the Chargers should look to add quality depth at wide receiver, offensive line, linebacker, and cornerback. Here is a possible Chargers haul on draft day:
