The Los Angeles Chargers fan base has been throwing out of a plethora of names in regards to who will have that “breakout year” for the Bolts.

A lot of names have been thrown around such as Kyzir White, Michael Davis, Jerry Tillery, and others. It’s pretty safe to say the player with the biggest breakout year on the Bolts roster was Austin Ekeler, who shined in 2019.

Melvin Gordon’s holdout contributed to him earning the starting job and maintaining his roster spot for the next year and also earning a four-year, $24.5 million contract.

A guy everyone needs to look out for a breakout year in 2020 is Drue Tranquill.

Tranquill excelled last season when given the opportunity, especially on special teams.

Not only did Drue finish the year with 75 total tackles (2nd highest on the team), but he also recorded two blocked punts. Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley loves the former Notre Dame linebacker.

Bradley noted:

“What he gives us is versatility. He can go in and play MIKE, he can play dime, he can play WILL. He’s a guy that, anytime we need a break or someone goes down, he can flip over there and we really don’t lose much.” 

With the Chargers maintaining Denzel Perryman and drafting Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray in the first round, there is now more depth at the linebacker position.

Adding some help could be the perfect recipe for Drue Tranquill to really thrive at that second level of the defense.
Look out for Tranquill in 2020.
