Chargers take NT Carrethers in 5th round of draft

Posted: Updated:

Kyle Kraska's Take: The 2014 NFL Draft is now complete and the San Diego Chargers have added six new players, some of which will be expected to contribute right away. If there's a common thread that links these young football players, it's a passion for playing the game. Talking today with top picks Jason Verrett, Jerry Attaochu and Chris Watt it became quickly apparent that it's not just their physical skills but also the heart with which they play football that enticed GM Tom Telesco and HC Mike McCoy to select them to be San Diego Chargers. We'll get our first look at the new Rookies at a mini-camp scheduled for May 16th at Chargers Park.


SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers have completed their draft by picking three players Saturday, highlighted by the selection of Arkansas State nose tackle Ryan Carrethers in the fifth round.

The Chargers also took Arizona State running back Marion Grice in the sixth round and Baylor wide receiver Tevin Reese in the seventh.

The Chargers didn't have a fourth-round pick after trading it to Miami to move up in the second round Friday to take Georgia Tech outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu.

Carrethers' last play in college was blocking the potential tying field goal as time expired to preserve the Red Wolves' 23-20 win against Ball State in the GoDaddy Bowl.

Reese already has a TD catch at Qualcomm Stadium, the Chargers' home. He caught a 55-yarder in Baylor's 2012 Holiday Bowl win against UCLA.
