Chargers select Duke edge rusher in Round 4 of NFL draft


The Chargers started Day 3 of the NFL draft by getting help for the defense:

CHRIS RUMPH II, edge rusher
6 feet 3, 244 pounds, Duke, Round 4, Pick 118.

Notable: Rumph’s father, Chris, was hired to be the defensive line coach for the Chicago Bears in January.

Last season: Rumph had eight sacks and 52 tackles in his third season at Duke, where he finished with 17.5 career sacks.

Why the Chargers drafted him: Transitioning to a defense with more of a 3-4 front, the Chargers were looking to bolster their presence on the edge. They signed veteran Kyler Fackrell in free agency to do that and now add more depth with Rumph.
