Los Angeles Chargers: Justin Herbert
For a couple of years there, Chargers fans had to be worried sick about what life beyond Philip Rivers might look like.
After the 2020 NFL Draft, they had to be absolutely thrilled.
Even though nobody knew just how good Justin Herbert would be immediately upon his arrival onto the scene in Los Angeles, there was undoubtedly plenty of optimism just simply based on the fact that the Chargers were able to draft a guy some thought was QB1 of his class (yes, even over Joe Burrow) as the QB3 when all was said and done.
Through two seasons, Herbert has been nothing short of spectacular. Has he been perfect?
Absolutely not, but the results have been stellar no matter what way you look at them for the Chargers, specifically as it pertains to Herbert’s development.
The team’s success is another story.
The Chargers need an influx of new talent on defense, so that’s where most of the conversation will be centered in 2022.
Los Angeles needs to retain Mike Williams, who has become one of Herbert’s favorite guys to get the ball to in clutch situations.
