Omari Hand, a defensive end out of Tennessee, joined the Chargers as an undrafted free agent.
Hand, considered a late round pick by many dropped due to a hamstring injury.
Hand started every game at left defensive end, recording 68 tackles (40 solos) with 2 sacks for minus-10 yards and 5 stops for losses of 21 yards. He also had a team-high 17 quarterback pressures and deflected a pass.
One of three team captains, he recorded 103 tackles (58 solos) with 3½ sacks, 10 stops behind the line of scrimmage, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble during his career.
Hand threw up 34 reps of the bench press at the combines, the tops among defensive ends. He also came in with the biggest hands at 10 3/4".
At 6-3, 270 pounds, Hand is still considered raw. His big hands give him an advantage in the trenches but he needs to work on his footwork and balance.
