Following the Chargers’ Week 15 win over the Raiders, they would now be slated to own the No. 9 overall selection if the season ended today.

Prior to their victory, Los Angeles would have been picking No. 4 overall, but now, they’re barely inside of the top 10.

The Bolts, along with five other teams possess a 5-9 record. However, since they have a weaker strength of schedule, they’re projected to pick earlier on than the others.

The Chargers are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball, but there could be some holes to fill depending on what the team decides to do with their unrestricted free agents.

Los Angeles could go a multitude of ways, including selecting the top offensive lineman to protect quarterback Justin Herbert, take an edge rusher to compliment Joey Bosa, snag a premiere cornerback, or give Herbert another weapon.
