2010 NFL Draft, Pick 12: Chargers Trade Up For RB Ryan Matthews

Trade alert:

  • Miami traded: 12th overall pick, 4th round pick, and 6th round pick.
  • San Diego traded: LB Tim Dobbins, 1st round pick, 2nd round pick and 4th round pick

With the 12th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the Chargers select...

Fresno State RB Ryan Matthews

It's not surprising that the Chargers drafted a running back in the first round but it is a surprise they moved this far into the first round to nab Matthews. They gave up a 2nd and a 4th round pick, which you don't need us to tell you is A LOT for a running back. He better be the second coming of Barry Sanders.

Matthews will team with Darren Sproles to replace LaDainian Tomlinson.
