The Los Angeles Chargers are one of the most talented teams in the NFL, with a quarterback considered to be elite in only his first few years in the league, as Justin Herbert has proven his worth and then some.
Unfortunately, the Chargers have infamously been unable to get it done when they need to get it done the most: in the NFL playoffs.
That’s a pretty big problem, and ESPN’s Mina Kimes thinks she knows how that can start to get fixed, with the team in desperate need of speed and a deep threat for Herbert downfield.

With the 2023 NFL Draft less than a month away, the Chargers are almost certainly doing their due diligence on the offensive talent available, with wide receiver potentially being a point of emphasis.
Herbert is the team’s best asset, and he could be around for the next decade or more, which means the team needs to build around him while giving him the weapons he needs to succeed, especially in a stacked AFC West division.
As Kimes points out, the draft is filled with talented prospects at the wide receiver position.
Quentin Johnston, Jordan Addison, Zay Flowers and Jaxon Smith-Njigba are a few of those talented wide receivers available in the draft that the Chargers should look at, as one of these players could be the missing piece to opening up the offense in Los Angeles.
The Chargers are currently sitting at No. 21 in the first round of the upcoming draft and should be able to grab one of the four wideouts mentioned if they decide to go that route.NEXT: Chargers HC Comments On The Future Of Justin Herbert
