With just three days until the Los Angeles Chargers kick off their 2017 NFL preseason against the Seattle Seahawks, the team has released its first unofficial depth chart for this upcoming season.

The depth chart is not filled with any major surprises except for the fact that rookie guard Dan Feeney is not currently with the first team. However, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to see him grab the starting position before Week 1 of the regular season.

Moreover, quarterback Kellen Clemens got the nod over quarterback Cardale Jones, who the Chargers just traded for and was a fourth round pick in 2016.

The 2018 NFL draft is just under one year away, but for the die-hard Los Angeles Chargers fan in everyone, it is never too early to start discussing the future.

In their latest 2018 NFL mock draft, Draft Wire predicted to take Penn State safety Marcus Allen with the No. 15 overall pick.

With Los Angeles selecting two safeties in the fourth and fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft, safety is still a glaring need in the secondary as one can’t expect mid-to-late round draft selections to fill a long-term need.
