    SAN DIEGO-The San Diego Chargers have taken Tennessee quarterback Jonathan Crompton with a compensatory pick in the fifth round of the NFL draft.

    Crompton replaces third-string quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, who was traded to Seattle in mid-March.

    The pick, No. 37 in the fifth round and 168th overall, was compensation for losing unrestricted free agents Mike Goff and Igor Olshansky after the 2008 season.

    Crompton passed for 12 touchdowns with only two interceptions in the Vols' last five games, including a career-best five TD passes with no picks against Memphis. He finished the season with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

    Ahead of him on the depth chart are Pro Bowler Philip Rivers and backup Billy Volek.
