In the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Chargers selected two-time All-Big Ten linebacker Joshua Perry from Ohio State.

A 6-4, 253 pound first-team All-Big Ten selection as a senior at Ohio State, Perry is expected to contribute at inside linebacker and on special teams. He was a teammate of Chargers first-round pick defensive end Joey Bosa and a member of the Buckeyes’ 2014 College Football Playoff National Championship team. Perry played as a true freshman in 2012 and finished his career with 298 tackles, 7.5 sacks and 18 tackles for loss.

Perry graduated with a degree in consumer and family financial services. In 2015, he was a finalist for two coveted community awards — the Lott IMPACT Trophy and the Senior CLASS Award. Perry works closely with the Autism Speaks Foundation, as his younger brother, Jahred, has a mild form of autism. Perry also has spent time with young cancer patients and in 2015, he visited Costa Rica and helped deliver shoes to children from deprived neighborhoods.
