Los Angeles Chargers

Hunter Henry – Like his fellow tight end Tyler Eifert, very few players earn more unwarranted buzz every offseason about their potential for the coming year than Chargers tight end Hunter Henry.

Injuries have hurt both Eifert and Henry from reaching their full potential, but year after year, we still hear about how great the Chargers offense will be with Henry only to find he’s not nearly as much a part of things as predicted.

Los Angeles Rams

Gerald Everett – Everett has moderately improved in his first few seasons, but the former second round pick in 2017 still hasn’t earned a starting role on a young Rams offense. That’s bad news and a largely wasted investment when the return is something a veteran free agent could provide (a la Ben Watson). The potential is still there, but the opportunity might not be.

Miami Dolphins

Josh Rosen – Josh Rosen has only played in the NFL for two seasons. In that time, he’s already forced two franchises to use their very next top picks on new quarterbacks in the following draft.

As a former No. 3 overall pick, the early signs are not good at all that Rosen will be able to turn things around and unless a team is interested in trading for a developmental project, the Dolphins are likely stuck with him for a couple seasons.
