Biography

Kyle Emanuel made an immediate impact, rare among rookie fifth-round picks.

Emanuel played in 15 games and started three. He was a regular in the team’s outside linebacker rotation and he had the second-most (tied) special teams tackles on the squad. And in his very first regular-season game in the Bolts’ 2015 opener versus Detroit, Emanuel recorded an interception, a pressure that led to another, a 13-yard sack, and two tackles for loss.

Emanuel came from North Dakota State, where he won the 2014 Buck Buchanan Award as the Football Championship Subdivision’s top defensive player. He led the FCS with 19.5 sacks and 32.5 tackles for loss.

The Schuyler, Nebraska native enrolled at NDSU after being overlooked by his home state’s schools despite an all-state prep career. It was a fortuitous move as the Bison went 58-3 during his career in the process of capturing four conference titles and four NCAA championships.

This year, Emanuel will be joined in the linebackers meeting room at Chargers Park by a fellow Bison. New linebackers coach Bob Babich spent six seasons (1997-02) as the head coach at North Dakota State.

Shortly after being drafted by the Chargers last May, Emanuel gained notoriety when he sent a tweet seeking congratulations from Hollywood starlet Julianne Hough, who wasted little time in obliging the request from the Chargers’ newest linebacker.
