The Chargers had three picks in the first round, going defense with the first two and selecting a receiver with their final pick of the day.
To start day two, they have taken running back Darren Sproles, a dynamic player who can fill multiple roles. With the Chargers, Sproles will immediately step in as the primary returner on special teams.
Sproles set a Big-12 record with 6,182 all-purpose yards and finished his career in the top six nationally in the category.
As a junior, Sproles recorded the 10th-best single-season rushing total in NCAA history with 1,986 yards.
In all, Sproles set 23 records while at Kansas State, including virtually every career, single-season and single-game mark for both rushing and all-purpose yards. He holds the KSU records for both career touchdowns (48) and career rushing touchdowns (45). Sproles totaled an incredible 24 career 100-yard rushing games, with five 200-yard rushing performances, and averaged 110.6 yards per game during his career.
