One of Justin Herbert’s first official acts as a Charger will be reaching out to the team’s fans.

The No. 6 overall pick in the 2020 draft will host a live chat on Instagram (@justinherbert) beginning at 5 p.m. Friday.

The Chargers selected Herbert, a former star quarterback at Oregon, with their first pick Thursday.

He is expected to start the 2020 season behind veteran Tyrod Taylor and be groomed to eventually take over as a potential long-term starter at the position.
