Chargers select DT Jerry Tillery in first round

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers were able to address one of their biggest needs during the first round of Thursday's draft by selecting Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery with the 28th overall pick.

The Chargers have one of the best defensive end combinations in the league with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, but depth at defensive tackle has taken a hit during the offseason. They released Corey Liuget prior to the start of free agency while Darius Philon and Damion Square departed as unrestricted free agents.

"His inside pass rush ability is what stood out from the tape," general manager Tom Telesco said. "He runs very well for a big guy. He has size, length and is very flexible."
