The Los Angeles Chargers coaching staff got an overhaul this offseason, as they brought in a new head coach in Brandon Staley. He replaced Anthony Lynn, who had this team playing well down the stretch, but in the end, the organization decided to go in another direction.
Staley inherits a team with a legitimate franchise quarterback in Justin Herbert and a bunch of weapons on the offensive side of the ball. The issue will be keeping Herbert upright, and to do so, they use the No. 13 overall pick on Rashawn Slater, one of the best offensive tackles in this draft class.
The Minnesota Vikings go into next season with a lot to like on offense in terms of weapons, as Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson are two young stars. However, upfront is where they need help on that side of the ball, and in Alijah Vera-Tucker, they get a versatile offensive guard out of USC.
Minnesota has the talent to be a playoff team, but for Kirk Cousins to play at his best, he cannot have happy feet. Vera-Tucker helps bolster a middle of the offensive line that is a deficiency right now, and he will be well worth the No. 14 overall selection.
The New England Patriots failed to reach the playoffs this season, and will now have to sit back and watch former franchise quarterback Tom Brady play in the NFC title game. While it remains to be seen what they plan to do at quarterback moving forward, Cam Newton is likely not the answer, and they will certainly look to replace him this offseason.
The No. 15 overall pick is not the spot to do that, so if they do not trade up, look for them to add a dynamic playmaker in Kyle Pitts out of Florida. This kid is special, and we all know what Bill Belichick can do with an elite athlete at tight end.
