    SAN DIEGO-The San Diego Chargers have traded up in the third round of the NFL draft to take Washington inside linebacker Donald Butler with the 79th pick overall.

    The pick is somewhat surprising, considering that the Chargers had a bigger need for a defensive tackle.

    Butler was a two-year starter for the Huskies. He's likely the replacement for Tim Dobbins, who was sent to Miami on Thursday as part of the deal that allowed the Chargers to move up 16 spots in the first round to take Fresno State running back Ryan Mathews with the 12th overall pick.
