The Chargers have always had a talented player with linebacker Kyzir White, but his true colors have yet to show.

Whether that be due to injuries that hampered him in the early years of his career or playing in a limited role in Gus Bradley’s defense, White had always been lost in the shuffle.

Now in head coach Brandon Staley’s system, White has been displaying why he could experience a monstrous season in 2021, as he has been arguably the team’s best defender this summer.

At training camp, White has posted two pick-sixes and a handful of other eye-popping plays in coverage and against the run.

This past Saturday in the preseason opener against the Rams, White’s instincts, speed and high energy flashed, as he had three tackles near or behind the line of scrimmage.

Following the matchup, head coach Brandon Staley said that he views White as a co-starter at linebacker alongside Kenneth Murray and Drue Tranquill, which means that we can expect to see plenty of him this season.

Earlier on, Staley called the group the “strength of this football team,” and based on how they will be utilized and how much success Staley had with the Rams linebackers last season, I see high production from them.
