Chargers sign 4th-round pick Justin Eboigbe – Orange County Register

The Chargers on Thursday signed Justin Eboigbe, a defensive lineman from the University of Alabama who was their fourth-round draft pick last month. He is the seventh of their nine draft picks to sign, leaving only their top two selections – first-round offensive lineman Joe Alt and second-round wide receiver Ladd McConkey – unsigned.

Eboigbe played in 56 games over five seasons with the Crimson Tide and was a member of the team that went 13-0 and won the national championship in 2020. He recovered from a significant neck injury in 2022 to record 63 tackles, including 11½ for losses, and seven sacks in 2023.

“When you watch his film, he does everything right,” Chargers general manager Joe Hortiz said last month. “He plays the defensive line position how we want it done. It’s hat in hands, extending, two-gapping, reading, he’s instinctive. He has a high motor. He’s athletic. He’s a sneaky pass rusher.”
