Biography

A young and rising talent who is a former sixth-round pick, Darius Philon heads into his third season with the Bolts.

As a second-year player in 2016, Philon played in 14 games, and he made a pair of starts. He finished the season with 16 tackles and a sack.  

Philon went to school at Arkansas where he redshirted for a year before playing two seasons (2013-14) for the Razorbacks. With a young son, Darius Jr. – who was born last August – on the way, Philon decided he needed to provide for his family and tossed his hat into the NFL ring after his redshirt sophomore season. Philon rolled the dice by leaving school after just three years, but the Chargers’ sixth-round pick played well as a rookie and showed he made the right decision.

At Arkansas, it didn’t take long to see that Philon had NFL potential. His first collegiate start came as a redshirt freshman in 2013 against the No. 1 team in the nation, Alabama. That afternoon, Philon racked up a career-high eight tackles against the Crimson Tide.
