2. Tyler Boyd to the Los Angeles Chargers

A veteran WR coming onto the Los Angeles Chargers after the 2024 NFL Draft makes some sense. The Chargers parted with both Mike Williams and Keenan Allen this offseason, so their already shaky WR room is even more unstable. They hold the fifth overall pick in the NFL Draft and could use that to land a top WR prospect like Malik Nabers or even use it on an offensive tackle.

LA trading down for more capital might be their best move considering how weak their roster is, and even if they come away with multiple rookie WRs, adding a quality veteran like Tyler Boyd to raise the floor of that move makes sense.

3. Emmanuel Ogbah to the Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles traded for a very good DE in Montez Sweat during the 2023 NFL Season, and it had an instant impact on the unit as a whole. I'm sure he plans on adding more help along the defensive front during the 2024 NFL Draft, but what if he did that and still brought in another talented DE?

Emmanuel Ogbah is still out there and has been a 20+ QB hit player in this league before. Perhaps in a rotational role, Ogbah can be another quality veteran presence up front. With Caleb Williams likely heading to Chicago, Poles is now in the part of his tenure where hitting on a rookie QB can give him financial flexibility to make fun moves like this all over the roster.
