28. Los Angeles Chargers: Washington Linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven
After all of the years watching the Los Angeles Chargers come up short of reaching the playoffs, the team finally came through during the 2018 season, and even advanced to the Divisional Round before falling to the New England Patriots.
Unfortunately, that loss to the eventual Super Bowl champions made it clear that Los Angeles has a little work to do on both sides of the football before they can truly compete for the Lombardi Trophy, although they’re in much better shape than most teams.
Now that the Chargers were able to put an end to their playoff drought, these next few months will be extremely important to make sure they’re in the best position possible to make another run at the postseason.
On the defensive side of the football, the presence of Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram provide the Chargers with quite the defensive duo, but just imagine what this unit would be like if Ben Burr-Kirven were to be added to the mix.
Washington has seen plenty of great defenders go on to succeed in the NFL over the years, and Burr-Kirven made it clear at the combine that he’s ready to handle the challenge of becoming a threat at the NFL level.
