The Los Angeles Chargers’ 2017 draft class is officially under contract.
Chargers third-round guard Dan Feeney was the team’s only remaining unsigned draft pick–until now. The former Indiana Hoosier signed a four-year contract, Los Angeles announced.
We've signed third-round pick Dan Feeney to a four-year contract.

Having the Chargers sign all of their draft picks is bigger news than you’d think. Last year, it took until the end of August to get first-round pick Joey Bosa under contract.
Three of the Chargers’ seven draft picks were offensive linemen. Feeney and 2017 second-rounder Forrest Lamp will compete right away for a starting role on a new-look offensive line.
General manager Tom Telesco made it his goal to upgrade what was the second-worst offensive line in 2016. Hopefully, Telesco’s new additions will pan out.
