Where are the Chargers drafting in 2024 NFL Draft? Who might they pick in mock draft?

We look at Chargers’ draft position in the 2024 NFL Draft and break down who they may select in the first overall

The Los Angeles Chargers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 18, 13-12. That loss sends them to 5-12 on the season. It was a thoroughly disappointing season for the Chargers, who hoped to ride star quarterback Justin Herbert to the playoffs. It wasn’t to be as injuries, poor coaching and bad defense derailed them before Herbert was forced to I.R. They tossed HC Brandon Staley to the curb and will be looking for a new head coach this offseason.

Chargers draft order: 5th pick

The Chargers lost eight of their last nine games and five in a row with Easton Stick starting to finish the season. That propelled them to the No. 5 pick.

Chargers mock draft: Potential first-round pick

The Chargers need help in many spots, as they will likely lose some starters this offseason. The lack of wide receiver depth was a big problem when Mike Williams went down with an injury early in the season and Keenan Allen had to play through numerous injuries. First round pick Quentin Johnston was a bust, at least for the 2023 season. He had plenty of opportunity with injuries, but still couldn’t show much promise. I think they have to go for wide receiver with the fifth pick.

LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers makes sense unless somehow Marvin Harrison Jr. falls to them, which he won’t. They also need help throughout the defense, but getting help for Justin Herbert is essential. Tight end Brock Bowers would be a good fit for a need, but it does feel a bit early for a tight end. He is worth a lot of consideration though.
