After taking Western Kentucky offensive lineman Forrest Lamp in the second round, the Los Angeles Chargers doubled-down at the position in the third, drafting Indiana guard Dan Feeney with the 71st overall pick.
We will have extensive coverage about Feeney throughout the night, including an exclusive first interview with the former Hoosier star, initial reaction from Bolts brass and more.
For now, here is his prospect profile written leading up to the draft:
Weight: 305 pounds
NFL Network Pro Comparison: Clint Boling
Dan Feeney is projected to be the second straight Indiana offensive lineman drafted early in the NFL Draft. In fact, many thought he would have been off the board early last season alongside teammate Jason Spriggs, who was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the second round.
Feeney opted to return for his senior year, where he reaffirmed his status as a top guard prospect.
A two-time team captain and four-year starter for the Hoosiers, Feeney won accolades each year in Bloomington. After being named a third-team All-American and first-team All-Big Ten pick purely as a guard his junior year, he saw time at right tackle in 2016. His play earned him first-team All-American honors and second straight selection to the All-Big Ten team.
A road grader in the run game, Feeney helped future NFL stars Tevin Coleman and Jordan Howard achieve success while at Indiana. His quickness off the blocks also helps him succeed in pass protection.
Overall, scouts project Feeney to anchor an offensive line along the interior for years to come.
