The Chargers got themselves an uber-productive pass rusher with the 17th pick of the fifth round, selecting North Dakota State standout Kyle Emanuel.

Emanuel had a remarkable senior year for NDSU, playing both defensive end and linebacker and totaling 19.5 sacks, best in both FBS and FCS. He's quick, powerful and versatile, though some scouts are worried about his coverage ability at the linebacker position. His strength and straight-line speed can't be questioned, though.
