Bio

In the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Chargers selected Ryan Carrethers, the first player from Arkansas State ever drafted by the Bolts. A two-time All-Sun Belt Conference pick, Carrethers finished his career with 196 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. As a senior, he blocked two kicks, including a 38-yarder with no time remaining to secure a 23-20 victory for the Red Wolves over Ball State in the GoDaddy Bowl. Carrethers’ 93 tackles during his senior season were third-most in the nation among defensive linemen.

A native of Nashville, Tenn., Carrethers attended Brentwood Academy, the same high school as Chargers left tackle King Dunlap. At Brentwood, Carrethers was a two-time state champion heavyweight wrestler who went undefeated as a senior.

Carrethers is one of the team’s strongest players. At Arkansas State, he broke the squat record as a sophomore and this offseason, he squatted 700 pounds. At his Pro Day in March, Carrethers bench-pressed 36 reps at 225 pounds, stopping only when the plates fell off the bar he was using.
