Chargers selected Georgia Tech OLB Jeremiah Attaochu with the No. 50 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Attaochu (6-foot-3 1/4, 252) left Georgia Tech ranked first in school history in sacks (31.5) and sixth in tackles for loss (43.5). Still only 21 -- he turned in late January -- Attaochu is a native Nigerian with experience at both 3-4 outside linebacker and 4-3 end. Attaochu got lost in the shuffle a bit during the pre-draft process when he tore his right hamstring at the Senior Bowl, but rebounded at the Yellow Jackets' Pro Day with 4.58 and 4.63 forties, to go with a 37 1/2-inch vertical. Even if he's a tad light, Attaochu is an explosive speed rusher with impressive film. He projects as an early-career impact edge disruptor. He'll team up with Dwight Freeney and Melvin Ingram with the Bolts to harass opposing quarterbacks. May 9 - 8:38 PM
