Early Chargers Superlative Predictions

New, comments

Players report tomorrow, who will make the most of this season

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers Minicamp Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It’s finally here. Charger players report to training camp tomorrow and the final faze of preparation for the 2018 season will be under way. Over the next few weeks we will see the roster and depth chart start to take shape based on who is playing with who, and in some cases, *cough Kyzir White and Derwin James cough, where they are playing.

So before anyone has had a chance to do anything, we thought we’d take a stab at doing some Chargers 2018 Season Superlatives. There is a tweet circulating around football twitter with a fun set of superlatives so we used that as our model.

We actually had decent consensus and the same set of names came up a lot, although in different categories. If you’re looking for an early indicator as to who we are most looking forward to seeing play, take the names from this list as a starting point.
