After boasting one of the better NFL draft classes in 2017, some Los Angeles Chargers veterans may find themselves in a fight to keep their roles if patterns don’t change this season.

As such, here’s a look at three L.A. veterans that must step up in order to keep their roles on the Bolts moving forward.

No. 3, Keenan Allen, WR

There is no denying Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen’s ample skill set, however, he has struggled mightily to stay healthy over the last two seasons playing in just nine games during said span.

Allen is coming off of a torn ACL one year after suffering a scary kidney injury that ended his previous campaign.

Additions such as Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams and promising receivers Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman making strides forward, Allen must remain healthy and hope for a return to form in order to lock down his role with the Bolts long-term.
