With the 61st pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the San Diego Chargers selected LB Jonas Mouton out of Michigan. Standing 6'1" and 239 pounds, he has a lot of athleticism originally being recruited as a safety.
Jon Gruden described him as a sleeper on a lot of draft boards. He was on the Butkus award watch list and on the All-Big Ten second team (media).
The Chargers have been improving their front seven and that continues with Mouton.
