Chargers selected Missouri OLB Andrew Gachkar with the No. 234 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

A two-year starter for the Tigers, Gachkar is an effective sideline-to-sideline chaser but needs to add power at just 229 pounds. An underrated prospect, Gachkar has a shot to make the team as a backup linebacker and special teamer.
