2013 NFL Draft: The Final Rounds

The Chargers introduce their first three picks before wrapping up the 2013 NFL Draft.

Previous Recaps: Day 1 - Day 2

NEW YORK, N.Y. (04/27/13) As the 2013 NFL Draft reached it's conclusion, the San Diego Chargers added three more prospects, the San Diego State Aztecs got their Mountain West Conference leading third draft selection, and more former San Diego prep football stars landed on NFL rosters.

Round 4

With the 133rd overall pick, the Atlanta Falcons selected…

Height & Weight: 6'8" 260lbs
Hometown: La Mesa, California

Toilolo will begin his pro career the way his collegiate career ended, playing backup to a stud tight end. Only this time he'll be backing up a future hall of famer in Tony Gonzalez. With great size, speed, hands, and blocking ability, the former Highlander could be in the mix for the starting job after Gonzalez decides to call it a career.

Round 5

With the 144th overall pick, the New Orleans Saints selected…

Height & Weight: 6'0" 194lbs
Hometown: Encinitas, California

After an outstanding prep career at La Costa Canyon, Stills went on to become a three-year starter at Oklahoma. He finished his college career with a 204 catches (school record) for 2,594 yards and 24 touchdowns. New Orleans should be a great fit for the second-team all-Big 12 selection with their high scoring offense. He'll have the opportunity to catch passes from all-pro quarterback Drew Brees and compete for playing time behind Lance Moore and Marques Colston.

With the 145th overall pick, the San Diego Chargers selected…

Height & Weight: 5'9" 181lbs
Hometown: Dallas, Texas
High School: Skyline

The Chargers addressed one of their biggest needs of the offseason by selecting their second consecutive Cal Bear prospect. After losing both Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason to free agency, the Chargers' starting cornerback spots will be up for grabs. Williams will be competing with Shareece Wright and Derek Cox for one of those spots. He might be considered undersized for an NFL cornerback but his speed, quickness, and versatility could make up for it.

Round 6

With the 176th overall pick, the Houston Texans selected...

Height & Weight: 6'5" 302lbs
Hometown: Carlsbad, California

Quessenberry earned first-team all-WAC honors his senior season after anchoring the line that helped lead San Jose State to an 11-2 record and a bowl win. He can also play guard if needed.

With the 179th overall pick, the San Diego Chargers selected…

Height & Weight: 6'3" 260lbs
Hometown: Miami, Florida
High School: Norland

The Chargers add another pass rusher with their second to last pick of the draft. Williams recorded 150 tackles and 18 sacks during his four-year career as a defensive end, but he'll most likely be converted to outside linebacker.

Round 7

With the 209th overall pick, the Oakland Raiders select...

Height & Weight: 6'2" 199lbs
Hometown: Norcross, Georgia
High School: Norcross

Butler played just one season for San Diego State after transferring from USC where he spent the first three seasons of his college career. He caught 24 passes for 347 yards and four touchdowns for the Aztecs and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds at Pro Day.

With the 221st overall pick, the San Diego Chargers selected…

Height & Weight: 6'4" 229lbs
Hometown: Grand Terrace, California
High School: Colston

The Chargers used their final pick on another backup for Phillip Rivers. After one season of junior college football, Sorenen redshirted at BYU before transferring to Southern Utah in 2010. He spent three seasons with the Thunderbirds and finished with a school-record 9,445 passing yards and 61 touchdowns.
