On Sunday, the Los Angeles Chargers will begin their 2017 NFL campaign as they face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 of the NFL preseason. That means this is a great time for fans to make sure they are following all the best of the Bolts on social media.
Below, fans can find a list of some of the best of the past and present Chargers follows on Twitter.
Below Davis makes his case for placing the Bolts above the Houston Texans at No. 1.
“Defensive rookie of the year Joey Bosa finished with 10 ½ sacks in just 12 games. He and newly minted Melvin Ingram, who’s converting from linebacker, could give J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney serious competition as the league’s top end tandem.”
The Los Angeles Chargers have potential on defense as they ranked No. 16 in the NFL in yards against, but gave up the No. 29 most points in the NFL last season.
If the Chargers can improve defensively in the red zone and the offense turns the ball over less, then Los Angeles should have an impressive defense led by Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa.
Here are the 11 most important Chargers’ defensive players in 2017.
No. 11 – DT Brandon Mebane
The Chargers lack depth in the middle of the defense. Los Angeles was both average against the run and the pass last season and will need to improve on defense if they want a shot at the AFC West crown.
Chargers defensive tackle Brandon Mebane has been a very productive player his entire career but is now 32-years-old. Therefore, he is going to have to work tirelessly during the summer to stop any sort of drop off in 2017.
A decline in play would be bad news for Los Angeles as he is their only consistently great player in the interior of the defensive line.
No. 10 – LB Jatavis Brown
With a weak interior of the defensive front, there could be a lot of free roaming running backs for the linebacker corps to chase down.
