Updated each Monday leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft, Chargers.com will look at whom draft analysts have the team selecting at No. 6 overall:

Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Last updated: March 16, 2020

"With Philip Rivers gone, the Chargers need a quarterback. And if the Dolphins are interested in Jordan Love (which has been reported), L.A. could have to choose between Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert (and possibly Love)."

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Last updated: March 13, 2020

"Could he fall he further than this? It all depends on how he progresses the next few weeks. For now, I have the Chargers taking him."

Josh Edwards, CBS Sports – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama (Mock trade with DET at No. 3 overall)

Last updated: March 13, 2020

"I'm convinced that Indianapolis and Tampa Bay prefer to add a veteran. I'm not as convinced with the Chargers."

Charles Davis, NFL.com – OT Andrew Thomas, Georgia

Last updated: March 12, 2020

"A quarterback will definitely be in play here, but the expected departure of OT Russell Okung, coupled with head coach Anthony Lynn's confidence in Tyrod Taylor, leads the Bolts to fortify the offensive line first."

Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon

Last updated: March 11, 2020

"The Chargers have a playoff-caliber defense but have a hole at quarterback, especially when thinking about that position long-term."

Bucky Brooks, NFL.com – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Last updated: March 10, 2020

"The presence of Tyrod Taylor as a bridge quarterback enables the Chargers to take Tua and use a redshirt year to give him every opportunity to return to full health."

Chad Reuter, NFL.com – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 6, 2020

"Love told reporters that the Chargers were among the teams he met with at the combine, and L.A. may be willing to chalk up Love's high interception total in 2019 (17) to a function of the QB trying to do too much for an average team."

Will Brinson, CBS Sports – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 5, 2020

"Not a Justin Herbert fan here, but I do think the Chargers are kind of rebooting and need to get a young quarterback, so I'll roll with the trendy thing and give them Jordan Love."

Cynthia Frelund, NFL.com – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Last updated: March 4, 2020

"Tagovailoa's 2019 resume shows quick-pass mastery (11.4 yards per attempt on throws made in under 2.5 seconds, the best figure in the FBS) and a 15:0 TD-to-INT ratio on play-action passes (also tops in the FBS). Not to mention, over the past two seasons, he ranks first in the FBS in deep-passing efficiency (19.8 yards per attempt on throws of 20-plus air yards). The potential to optimize the use of Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler stands out, too -- pairing those two with this particular QB projects VERY well."

Dane Brugler, The Athletic – QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Last updated: March 4, 2020

Subscription required: "Tagovailoa is the wild card of the draft. Talking to teams in Indianapolis, they are taking a cautious approach, but until they can see him throw on April 9, it is anyone's guess how high he will be drafted."

Todd McShay, ESPN – QB Jordan Love, Utah State

Last updated: March 2, 2020

Subscription required: "In apples-to-apples situations, like the Senior Bowl and the combine, Love stood out. He has a huge arm, strong instincts and mobility in the pocket. NFL teams want quarterbacks who can create in today's game, and that's exactly what Love does."

Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com – OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"The Chargers could grab Oregon QB Justin Herbert here, but if they aren't sold on him, addressing the offensive line is a must."

Michael Renner, Pro Football Focus – LB Isaiah Simmons, Clemson

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"Yes, it's a selfish pick on my end, but who doesn't want to see Derwin James paired up with bigger Derwin James? Instead of modern offenses giving defensive coordinators nightmares, it's about time someone flipped the script. Adding another movable chess piece that runs a sub-4.4 40 would do just that."

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"The 6'6", 236 pound athlete with a big right arm and impressive mobility could draw in the West Coast fans while also giving head coach Anthony Lynn a young quarterback to groom and grow with. There are many options on the table, but without projecting trades, Herbert is the best choice pre-free agency."

Trevor Sikkema, The Draft Network – OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville

Last updated: March 2, 2020

"If the Los Angeles Chargers aren't taking a quarterback with their top pick, expect it to be one of the top four offensive linemen. Here they go with the most physically imposing one."

Charley Casserly, NFL.com – QB Justin Herbert, Oregon

Last updated: Feb. 18, 2020

"With the Philip Rivers era now in the rearview, the Bolts are looking for their next franchise QB. Are they comfortable with Herbert here? Is he the QB they want to lead the team? Would they have to trade up for him? Or might they address the position in free agency?"

Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN – OT Jedrick Wills, Alabama

Last updated: Feb. 18, 2020

Subscription required: "A quarterback obviously makes sense here too, but with Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert off the board, they shouldn't reach. They could instead look to free agency for their 2020 starter, or stick with Tyrod Taylor, who won't turn the ball over."
