Ranking the 2021 AFC West WRs: Where the Las Vegas Raiders rank
2. Los Angeles Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers have a nice combination of top-end talent and depth to their receiver group after some recent additions to the unit were made. Keenan Allen is perhaps the most underrated receiver in the NFL and is among the best at the position despite not getting the same love from the media as his contemporaries.
Mike Williams has been underwhelmed after being taken 7th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft but does have one 1,000 yard season under his belt and has shown that he can be an excellent vertical threat. The Chargers may be moving on from him after this season but he is still a good number two receiver that could be a number one if he stays healthy.
After the top two guys, the Chargers have two other receivers in Jalen Guyton and Tyron Johnson that signed as UDFAs but have emerged as solid depth around the top two guys. They both have good size and speed and are great deep threats for their big-armed QB Justin Herbert to utilize.
The Chargers also drafted Tennessee’s Josh Palmer in the second round of the 2021 draft and while he didn’t have a very productive college career, has the physical tools and makeup of a solid NFL receiver. With Keenan Allen and Mike Williams leading the way, the Chargers have plenty of weapons to spread the field with and they would be number one in the division were it not for the track team lining up out wide in Kansas City.
