Maddox Heads West to San Diego

Nick Maddox joined the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent this week. Maddox is a 5-11, 215 pound running back out of Florida State.

The versatile Nick Maddox moved between wide receiver and running back early in his career before settling in at tailback as a junior and senior.

Maddox carried the ball 106 times for 602 yards and 4 scores as a senior while catching 23 passes for 197 yards and 1 score. His junior totals were 98 rushes for 438 yards and 3 scores on the ground and 26 receptions for 262 yards and one touchdown as a pass catcher.

The two times he was the featured runner at Florida State he crossed the 100 yard barrier rushing the ball and posted 5.7 yards per carry on the season.

Maddox never really got his chance to be the feature back in the FSU attack, but did show his versatility and could return kicks in the NFL as well as compete as a third down back. As an ex-receiver, Maddox is polished at catching balls out of the backfield.

Maddox was one of only two tailbacks who ran during the Saturday morning practice at the combines.
