Before the 2016 NFL draft, the Chargers sat in a position of control. They owned the No. 3 pick and knew " thanks to trades by the Rams and Eagles that landed those teams Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, respectively " they'd have their choice of any non-quarterback available.

The pick was a well-kept secret, but the Chargers were sure who they wanted: defensive end Joey Bosa.

Two years later, Bosa has cemented himself as one of the league's top pass rushers. He set an NFL record by recording 19 sacks in his first 20 games.

He plays opposite Melvin Ingram, a 2012 first-round pick who also has blossomed into a disruptive pass rusher.

Add a specialist such as Chris McCain and the Chargers have plenty of ways to apply pressure on quarterbacks without having to blitz.

Unfortunately for them, though, defenses have to do more than defend the pass.
