Los Angeles Chargers net great offseason grade, but lack of WR is overblown

The Los Angeles Chargers have had an excellent offseason but by far the position that has been talked about the most is at wide receiver. There is a strong belief out there that the team doesn't have enough at wide receiver.

Despite giving the Chargers an A- for their offseason grade, Seth Walder of ESPN lists the team "not adding a higher-quality veteran WR" as the move he disliked most. Only five teams in the entire league received an A and the Chargers were one of them, so there has been plenty to like.

The Chargers traded away Keenan Allen and allowed Mike Williams to leave in free agency. The wide receiver room will look very different, but are some of these analysts sleeping on it?

Chargers are going to be fine at wide receiver

With Jim Harbaugh as the team's coach (the hiring of Harbaugh was Walder's favorite move), the team is likely going to use a run-first approach. They are going to build a dominant offensive line and make the work for Justin Herbert easier, rather than asking him to be Superman.

 

The team drafted Ladd McConkey in the second round, a wide receiver who is going to help the team open up the entire field due to what he will be able to do in the slot. They also added Will Dissly and Hayden Hurst at tight end and in the case of Hurst, he can stretch the field.

On the outside, D.J. Chark is a capable veteran and there is still plenty of belief in a bounce-back season for Quentin Johnston. The team also has intriguing options on the back end of the depth chart such as Derius Davis, Brenden Rice, and Cornelius Johnson.

It would be better if the Chargers were able to land a guy like Brandon Aiyuk, as suggested here, but the constant attention to the lack of wide receivers on this roster is a bit much. With Harbaugh calling the shots, the team is going to be just fine.
