OC Ken Whisenhunt Opens Up as Offseason Program Gets Underway - Ricky Henne
The big thing is getting our guys back in the building. When it ends the way it does, especially in the playoffs in the second round, it’s hard. Everyone says their goodbyes, and then that’s it.

He is lanky and not so physical, but he can cover out of bump formations, and you can never have enough coverage guys in Kansas City’s division.

ESPN reveals early win probability for each Chargers game - Gavino Borquez
Ideally, L.A. should win over 10 games based on the schedule at the moment. Again, teams will likely have revamped rosters by the end of the week when the draft is over, but it’s never too early to look towards the future.

Tom Telesco's draft patterns over six years with the Chargers - Tyler Schoon
If one is of the mindset that since he will never take the same position in the first round again, then it leaves interior defensive line, offensive guard, linebacker, and free safety as the four remaining major needs, and that offensive tackle, wide receiver, and corner can be ruled out as potential candidates.
