Bio

The San Diego Chargers traded up in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft and selected Georgia Tech outside linebacker Jerry Attaochu (uh-TAU-chew) with the 50th overall pick.

The Chargers traded with the Miami Dolphins, moving up seven spots to No. 50, while sending the Dolphins San Diego’s second-round pick (No. 57) and fourth-round pick (No. 125). It marks the second time in two years that Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco has traded his second and fourth-round picks to move up in the second round. Last year, Telesco traded the Chargers’ second (45) and fourth-round (110) picks to Arizona to move up and select linebacker Manti Te’o with the 38th overall pick.

Attaochu, 6-3, 252 pounds, was a three-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference pick at Georgia Tech, a first-team selection as a senior and an honorable mention pick as a sophomore and junior. He also was named third-team All-America by the Associated Press as a senior. Attaochu was a three-year starter for the Yellow Jackets who finished his career with a school-record 31.5 sacks, 43.5 tackles for loss, 196 total tackles and four forced fumbles. As a junior in 2012, Attaochu racked up 69 tackles, 10 sacks and 12 tackles for loss and as a senior, he set career highs with 12.5 sacks and 16 tackles for loss.

The 21-year-old Attaochu was born in Ibadan, Nigeria, before his family moved to the United States and settled in Washington, D.C. A science, technology and culture major at Georgia Tech, Attaochu prepped at Archbishop John Carroll High School in our nation’s capital.
