Los Angeles Chargers: Marvin Harrison Jr. is a no-brainer if he slips past No. 4

How ironic would it be if former Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh made an Ohio State player his first draft pick as the new head honcho of the Los Angeles Chargers?

Unlike the Patriots, the Bolts have the quarterback and already have talent on the field, so drafting Harrison Jr. if he slips down a little or even trading up a spot or two to get him would be more luxury vs need for a Chargers team that underachieved a bit in 2023. 

Speaking of underachieved, the team did select a wide receiver in the first round of the 2023 NFL season in Quentin Johnston.  The idea was to give Herbert another target while also adding a No. 2 option and eventual replacement for Keenan Allen at wide receiver.  While Johnston still has time to prove he is not a bust, if Harbaugh and the Chargers have a shot at Harrison Jr., they should go for it and probably will. 

In all the Chargers will have some work to do defensively, but offensively they could have a big-time QB-WR connection in Hebert to Harrison Jr.  Talk about striking big offensively if you are a Bolts fan.
