NFL Media’s Elliot Harrison released his All-Under 25 team Wednesday morning, and the Los Angeles Chargers are tied for the second most players on the list with two. Only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Jameis Winston, WR Mike Evans and G Ali Marpet boast more.
In order to make the team, a player must be under 24 or under before the first game of the year.
So which Chargers made the list?
First up is 22-year old Hunter Henry, who Harrison dubbed the most obvious no brainer on the entire team:
“Easiest choice on the list of All-Under-25 players. The absence of quality young tight ends in pro football is palpable. Henry enjoyed big moments during his rookie season, despite being part of a TE timeshare with Antonio Gates. His eight touchdown receptions were second to Michael Thomas among ALL rookies. Also worth noting: Philip Rivers completed nearly 70 percent of the passes thrown Henry's way.”
The other selection was defensive end Joey Bosa, who as a 21-year old was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year:
“Not sure anyone thought Bosa was going to be this good, this fast. Despite missing four games last season -- his first in the NFL -- Bosa produced 10.5 sacks for the Chargers. Going beyond the sacks and hurries, he simply looked like the best player on the field at times. Remarkable, given he missed all of training camp and preseason due to a contract holdout.”
