Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was captured showing off his “bunnies” during a drill at Tuesday’s practice, via the Chargers’ official Twitter account.

Gordon led the way in the exercise and set a good example for the fellow Los Angeles running backs Kenjon Barner, Kenneth Farrow and Branden Oliver.

The drill above is geared at improving a running back’s ability to jump over offensive linemen and into the end zone during short-yardage situations.

Why ESPN is right about LA Chargers winning AFC West

Just under one month ago, ESPN’s Mike Clay released his predictions for the 2017 NFL season where he surprisingly selected the Los Angeles Chargers to win the AFC West.

Clay has the Bolts finishing with 8.7 wins, which is 0.2 more than the Oakland Raiders.

To the casual fan, this may seem preposterous. However, Clay is not wrong about just how dramatically improved the Chargers will be in 2017.

Today is the third day of the Chargers Wire’s countdown to the Los Angeles Chargers’ training camp which begins on July 29. Until that day, we will count down the best Charger to wear each jersey number from No. 30 to No. 1 and will now look at No. 28.

Currently, No. 28 is worn by Chargers running back Melvin Gordon who had an impressive 2016 campaign before it was cut short due to injury.

Gordon ran for 997 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2016 after a disappointing rookie season where he ran for just 641 yards and zero touchdowns.

In all honesty, the former Badger has not done a lot yet with the Los Angeles organization, but if he continues to keep up his recent level of play, he will easily be the greatest No. 28 in Chargers’ history.

The only other competition would be Chargers defensive back Willie Buchanon, but he played the majority of his career for the Green Bay Packers. Therefore, Buchanon may be a few steps above Gordon at the moment, but it will not last for very long.

Gordon will surely take over as the best No. 28 in the franchise’s history.

The Los Angeles Chargers’ OTAs are currently in full-swing and despite the absence of their No. 1 draft pick, the Bolts look sharp.

All of the team’s top players, including Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen, quarterback Philip Rivers, running back Melvin Gordon and defensive end Joey Bosa, were out there working their tails off at the Chargers’ latest practice at Chargers Park in San Diego Tuesday.

At the beginning, fans get to see the 2017 Chargers stretching as a team before each player goes through their individual drills.

Gordon looked explosive coming around both edges, while Bosa shredded his footwork drills and Allen flashed the incredible hands that once made him one of the most effective rookie wide receivers in NFL history with a diving catch.

Overall, the team looks healthy, sharp and fit. Which is precisely what fans and coaches want to see at this stage of organized team activities.
