The San Diego Chargers Draft Notre Dame Offensive Guard Chris Watt 89th Overall

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The quiet and workman-like guard surprises many with a late 3rd round selection.

If Louis Nix had to wait a little longer than most felt was proper then it was Chris Watt who surprisingly didn't have to wait until day 3 of the draft to have his named called. The 6-2, 320 pound offensive guard turned some heads as the 89th overall pick by the San Diego Chargers.

Watt was quietly a very productive guard for Notre Dame, someone who was overshadowed a little bit by Zack Martin at left tackle. He started 26 games over the past two years and teamed up with Martin to provide a rock of consistency on the left side of the line.

Watt did suffer a knee injury late in the season which many believed might drop his stock in the draft. Turns out the Chargers really liked what they saw over his career and were willing to take a shot on him late in the 3rd round.

Congratulations to Chris and his family! You can read more about the Watt pick from SB Nation's San Diego Chargers blog Bolts from The Blue.
