The Chargers just brought in Jim Harbaugh to coach the team and lead their organization. Harbaugh prioritizes toughness and physicality over speed and athleticism, but Nabers will be too hard to pass up. 

Justin Herbert is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league, but LA hasn’t had a field stretcher for him to threaten defenses downfield. Adding Nabers, who is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons at LSU, would give the Chargers an element they desperately need on offense. 

Last year, LA drafted Quentin Johnston out of TCU in the first round, but he only caught 38 of his 67 targets for 431 yards and two touchdowns. He wasn't able to separate on routes and couldn't win contest catches like he did at TCU. It was a clear miss, so to atone for that mistake, the Chargers will go with Nabers, who is almost a sure thing.
