ESPN -- Rank: 8
The 2019 No. 28 overall pick has yet to establish himself as an impact player, leading the Chargers to decline the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. Tillery, 25, is now fighting for a roster spot after the Chargers upgraded their defensive front during the offseason, signing Sebastian Joseph-Day, Austin Johnson and Morgan Fox. As for how hot Tillery's seat is entering this season? Consider this: Coach Brandon Staley is electing to sit most starters during the preseason, playing only those who could use game experience in their role or who are in a position competition. Tillery was a preseason starter.

The bad news: Staley might be supplanted by Mike McDaniel this season as the head coach whose news conference clips circulate on social media as "honestly so important you need to stop what you're doing and watch this right now."
Nugget to remember: Herbert and Joe Burrow are either a historic tandem or an indication that quarterbacks can be great quicker than ever. Herbert has the most passing yards (9,350, blowing away Andrew Luck's 8,196) and touchdowns (69 to Dan Marino's 68) by any quarterback through his first two seasons, while Burrow sports the best completion percentage (68.2) of any quarterback through two years. Herbert needs only 3,608 passing yards and 30 touchdowns to hold both records for the first three years of a quarterback's career.
