Chargers pick UConn DE Reyes in 2nd round

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers have drafted Connecticut defensive end Kendall Reyes in the second round, another addition to a unit that was the worst in the NFL in allowing third-down conversions last year.

Reyes can play end or tackle. His selection with the 49th pick overall comes one year after the Chargers used their first-round pick on defensive end Corey Liuget. Liuget had a quiet rookie season.

Known mainly for his run-stuffing ability, Reyes had a career-high 46 tackles and was third on the team with 4½ sacks last season.

He had 32½ tackles behind the line of scrimmage in his career, 10th on the school's all-time list.

The Chargers picked outside linebacker Melvin Ingram of South Carolina in the first round Thursday.
