The Chargers were in Baton Rouge, LA on Wednesday, where they were in attendance for LSU’s pro day.

General manager Joe Hortiz and wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal represented Los Angeles.

The Tigers had a slew of prospects on display, with quarterback Jayden Daniels headlining the pack. However, the Bolts most likely had their eyes set on WRs Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas.

Nabers has been commonly linked to the Chargers at No. 5 overall since the start of the pre-draft process. He is a home-run threat each time he touches the ball, and that type of player would be a welcomed addition to the wide receiver room.

After an 89-catch, 1,569-yard, 14-touchdown season, Nabers followed it up with an incredible pro day, posting a 42-inch vertical and 4.35 40-yard dash time.

If Los Angeles were to trade down and stockpile more picks, Thomas could be a target for them later in the first round. At 6-foot-3 and 209 pounds, he has good size for the position but also possesses great speed and burst to be a threat vertically and in the open field.
