Chargers Select Tourek Williams In 6th Round

The San Diego Chargers selected some depth for the pass rush in the 6th round by taking Tourek Williams. He will get some reps at outside backer and try to win a job chasing after the quarterback.

Here is a note from FIU News:

Williams is arguably one of the top defensive ends ever to play at FIU. The three-time All-Sun Belt Conference honoree and 2012 team captain started the most career games ever by a defensive lineman at FIU (39). In 2012, Williams led the team with 14.5 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles, going along with a career-high 46 total tackles (including 29 solo), two pass break-ups and three quarterback hurries. He finished his FIU tenure second to former Panther and current NFL San Diego Charger Antwan Barnes in career tackles for loss (45.5), yardage from TFLs (224), sacks (18.0) and yardage from sacks (155).

We needed some depth outside and Williams will get a good shot to win a roster spot. Should be an interesting camp for him.
