The most surprising team to make the list is the Los Angeles Chargers, who are actually listed as the most likely team to have the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, according to PFF. While the Chargers are beginning life after Philip Rivers, they have a talented roster, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
In addition, Tyrod Taylor or rookie Justin Herbert should be able to do enough to compete in nearly every game. After the Chargers, seeing the Jacksonville Jaguars as the No. 2 team on the list doesn’t come as a surprise.
It’s obvious that the Jaguars are amid a complete rebuild, trading all of their key contributors in recent years. Also, with Gardner Minshew as their quarterback, it is unclear if he can repeat what he did in 2019.
As for the New York Giants, they are entering a new regime under Joe Judge. Even though Daniel Jones showed promise in 2019, there are still question marks on New York’s roster. The same can be said for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Miami Dolphins despite drafting Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa respectively in this year’s draft.
The one team that didn’t make the list that is a bit shocking is the Washington Redskins. Nevertheless, until the 2020 NFL season actually begins, it’s tough to gauge who will be the worst team in the league. With that being said, it seems highly unlikely that the Chargers will have the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
