Chris Olave NFL Draft photo
If there's any way to emerge from a soul-crushing loss with the future looking brighter than ever, the Chargers found it Sunday night. Justin Herbert's gritty performance and the team's never-say-die spirit shone through even as they lost a heartbreaker to miss the playoffs. Heading into a discontented offseason, the team has a few possible draft paths: A linebacker to compete with underperforming Kenneth Murray? An Edge Rusher to pair with Joey Bosa? More weapons for the rocket-armed Herbert?

This time around, the nod goes to more offense, more passing, more speed for the Chargers offense. Chris Olave is a polished route runner who can immediately become Herbert's main deep threat. If the team opts against a mega-dollar extension for Mike Williams, Olave can become a viable #2 for Keenan Allen.

CHARGERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
