Andrew Gachkar LB San Diego Chargers
Andrew Gachkar, who has been on Shot of Ginn before for getting stiches in his hand during a drunken brawl, ended up being drafted in the 7th round pick #234 by the San Diego Chargers.
Gachkar almost never played football after having a rib removed due to blood clotting, but had his first starting season in 2009 as a Junior where he ranked 2nd on the team in tackles with 80 and recorded 3 sacks. His senior season he ended with 84 tackles and 1 sack and was elected first team All-Big 12 by the media. That, along with an impressive pro day which would have put him in the top 5 for linebackers 40 at the combine ended up with his name being called on draft day.
