Chargers selected Iowa DB Desmond King with the No. 151 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
King (5’10/201) was a rare four-year starter in the Hawkeyes’ secondary, amassing 47 career pass breakups with 14 interceptions and also returning both punts and kicks. King won the Jim Thorpe and Jack Tatum Awards with eight INTs in 2015, and earned first-team All-Big Ten honors last season. Due to 4.60 speed but terrific run-support and tackling skills, King is likely headed for safety in the pros. While not an exceptional athlete, King has the requisite physicality and short-area quicks to cover slot receivers in addition to manning the back half. King's sub-par measurables were the reason he fell into the Chargers' fifth-round lap. Apr 29 - 2:22 PM
