Chargers draft Texas State cornerback Mager in 3rd round

SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Chargers have selected Texas State cornerback Craig Mager in the third round of the NFL draft.

Mager became the first Bobcat to play in the East-West Shrine Game and made an impression with scouts by doing well covering bigger receivers. He is 5-foot-11, 190 pounds.

Mager was one of two Texas State players invited to the combine. He was a 2014 All-Sun Belt Conference second-team. He had 63 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks last season.

He was taken with the 83rd pick overall.
