Flash Analysis

The San Diego Chargers did what they had to do in order to get their new starting running back.

Knowing that the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans might look at selecting Fresno St. University's Ryan Mathews, the Chargers traded up above those teams in order to select the powerfully built back.

The underrated runner will immediately start for San Diego and figures to be the kind of power back that will fit in well with their offensively philosophy.
