The Chargers have agreed to terms with second-round pick Jeremiah Attaochu, a league source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk (via Twitter). The outside linebacker out of Georgia Tech was taken with the 18th pick in the second-round.
The Chargers were high on the OLB and knew that he wouldn’t fall to them with the 25th pick in the second round (57th overall), so they sent the Dolphins their fourth-round pick to move up seven slots. Attaochu is a true 3-4 outside linebacker and has been praised for his high motor. He made a quick impact from the very beginning at Georgia Tech, registering 23 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss and 3.0 sacks in a reserve role as a true freshman. He steadily improved each season, and as a senior, dominated by recording 45 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks.
