San Diego Chargers to Interview Jeremiah Attaochu at combine

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Looking to bolster the pass rush this off-season, the Chargers will interview Georgia Tech OLB Jeremiah Attaochu, one of the nation's top edge rushers, this Sunday at the combine.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlkin, Chargers brass will interview Jeremiah Attaochu this weekend.

The Chargers will be looking to add depth to a part of the team that struggled to remain healthy in 2013, a year in which OLB's Melvin Ingram, Jarrett Johnson, and Dwight Freeney all missed significant time. So Chargers GM Tom Telesco and company will turn to the draft to help solidify their pass-rush, starting this weekend at the NFL Combine.

Attaochu, a third team All-American this past season, has seen significant playing time since his freshman year. A three-year starter for the Yellow Jackets, he has racked up 196 total tackles, with 43.5 of them coming as tackles for a loss, to go along with 31.5 sacks since 2010.

Attaochu also received great reviews at the Senior Bowl.

He joins a class headlined by fellow pass rushers Jadeveon Clowney, Anthony Barr, and Khalil Mack; all of which are projected first round picks. Attaochu is projected as a top 25 overall player and top 50 draft pick.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens have already met with him.

With the unsuccessful attempt to void Larry English's contract, his return has become unlikely. A deep class for edge rushers this year should help the team find a compliment to pair up with Ingram and forget about drafting English in 2009 with the 16th overall pick.

The Chargers hope interviewing one of the best in the nation at applying pressure to opposing QB's is a good start.
