Chargers fifth round pick is Tim Dobbins

With the San Diego Chargers fifth round selection in the 2006 NFL Draft, 151st overall, the Bolts selected Iowa State linebacker Tim Dobbins.

It wasn't until the fifth round that the Chargers were able to address their need for depth at inside linebacker, selecting Tim Dobbins.

With the team still pursuing a deal to ship Donnie Edwards out of town and facing what is likely the last year with Randall Godfrey, the Chargers needed to address the inside linebacker posiiton.

A junior college transfer, Dobbins was the Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year in 2004. Dobbins had 61 tackles, fifth best on the team and added two interceptions as a junior.

A year later, Dobbins recorded 103 tackles, tied for most on the team with 7.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and one interception.

Considered a high motor player with strong tackling skills, Dobbins is better against the run than the pass from his inside linebacker position.
