Top 25 under 25: The NFL's best young players - Sam Monson
Bosa was the most dominant player in the nation in college over the past two seasons, and while that doesn’t always translate to NFL production, it seems pretty clear that in Bosa’s case it has. After a lengthy holdout and then injury slowed his debut, he then set about destroying NFL opposition the way he did college, racking up 59 total pressures in only 12 games, the first of which he only played 27 snaps of.

Projecting The 2017 Compensatory Draft Picks - Nick
Note that although there are 38 eligible compensatory picks listed in this projection, each year only exactly 32 picks are awarded. Therefore, the picks that rank 33rd and lower are not awarded, although the official release will typically acknowledge their presence, as this list does with strikethrough text.

Chargers RB Andre Williams shows promise in finale - Eric Williams
"I did alright, but I wanted to do better," Williams said. "I ran the ball well sometimes. I wanted to make a catch there where I didn’t make a catch. It was decent. It was cool, and it was fun."

Chargers RB Danny Woodhead focused on triumphant return in 2017 - Eric Williams
"I’m in a good place right now," Woodhead said. "I feel really good, and we’ll see as things get closer what happens. But as far as my injury, I’m not concerned with my injury at all."

Mel Kiper's 2016 All-Rookie team - Mel Kiper Jr. (insider)
After a long contract negotiation and then a hamstring injury, Bosa debuted in Week 5 and showed all the tools of a star pass-rusher. He had 10.5 sacks in 12 games. He was unblockable at times, creating havoc off the edge and disrupting dropbacks. With Bosa, tight end Hunter Henry, linebacker Jatavis Brown and even punter Drew Kaser, the Chargers quietly have a stellar rookie class. Their new coach will inherit some young building blocks.
