Good morning, Bolts From the Blue.
As we enter into December one thing is clear; this team is due for a rebuild. The Chargers are going to miss the 2023 playoffs in all probability and, whilst it isn’t written in stone just yet, it is time to think further ahead to 2024 and beyond. So to aid with this process of finding future Chargers, which I am sure many of you will have started weeks ago, I have written a list of prospects representing the college teams that will be playing this weekend in the NCAA conference championship games.
These prospects are a mix of seniors and juniors that are likely to be declaring for the draft come spring next year. I have categorized them by games and then by teams to help you when watching the games.

Please let me know in the comments if you feel like I have missed any players, we are only at the start of the long road to April and there is plenty of time for me to watch some more tape!
