The six-foot, 228-pound Dahrran Diedrick will join the Chargers after sub-par 2002 campaign that saw him rush for 931 yards with a Nebraska squad that posted a 7-7 record, its worst in 41 years. But in 2001, Diedrick's first as the school's starting I-back, he led the Big 12 with 1,299 yards and helped the Cornhuskers reach the NCAA title game before ultimately losing to Miami.
San Diego is the best fit for me right now," Diedrick said. "Other teams had a lot more running backs so it should be easier to go down there and fight for a job."
"I was disappointed with how things went in the draft, but you can't stay disappointed for long because it will affect the way you perform," Diedrick said. "But I am going to camp with a chip on my shoulder and make teams sorry they didn't pick me."
