    Played FB H-back and TE.

    Did everything good, nothing great. Above average blocker and catcher. A lot of upside. A 7th round pick who can block.

    The Chargers added a sixth-and-final player when they took Miami (Fla.) tight end Dedrick Epps.

    Epps (6-4, 246) caught 19 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns as a senior.

    He had ACL surgery after the 2008 season but worked hard enough to come back in time for summer practices. Also described as "nasty."

    With scouts excited about Jimmy Graham’s potential, despite the fact he played one year of college football as a situational receiver at the University of Miami, Dedrick Epps got lost in the mix. A good pass receiver with athleticism after the catch, Epps average 13 yards per catch his junior year before tearing his A.C.L. before the 2008 Emerald Bowl. He showed the toughness and dedication to return eight months later and play the entire 2009 season, averaging 13 yards per catch once again. Epps has potential to develop into a solid tight end, and he will get a golden opportunity to learn behind Antonio Gates in a Norv Turner offense that has long valued receiving production at tight end.

    Dedrick Epps became the second Hurricane tight end drafted when San Diego selected him in the 7th round of today's NFL Draft.

    Dedrick Epps caught 19 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns as a senior in 2009 for the Hurricanes while sharing the tight ends duties with fellow NFL Draftee Jimmy Graham. Epps finished his career with 49 catches for 634 yards and six scores.
    Epps, 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, came to Miami as a four-star recruit out of Virginia and made a big impact for the Canes. San Diego liked him enough to use the 28th pick of the 7th round (235 overall) on him.

    Epps, who was the 20th tight end drafted this year, rounded out a Miami draft class that also featured Graham, linebacker Darryl Sharpton, and offensive tackle Jason Fox.
