Mouton (6-2, 240) is a two-year linebacker and second with the Chargers. The Chargers selected him in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
The Chargers were looking for big contributions when they drafted Jonas Mouton in the second round in 2011, but a shoulder injury in the preseason curtailed a promising start to his career.
Mouton’s shoulder has recovered and now he’s hoping to follow in the footsteps of another inside linebacker and high draft pick, Donald Butler. Just like Mouton, Butler was selected high - picked in the third round in 2010 - but he also suffered an early injury, rupturing his Achilles tendon during training camp. Butler missed the entire ’10 season, but he came back and started all 16 games in 2011. Mouton hopes to pen a similar story.
Mouton was the Big Ten Conference’s top tackler (117) as a fifth-year senior at Michigan in 2010. He recorded an impressive 264 total tackles as a three-year starter for the Wolverines and the Los Angeles native was a second-team All-Big Ten choice in 2010, also receiving the Wolverines’ Roger Zatkoff Award as the team’s top linebacker.
Mouton came from Venice High School, where he was one of school’s best-ever players. On the first snap of his first-ever high school game, Mouton knocked out a player from rival Carson High. And in college he was given the nickname “The Assassin” after several of the Wolverines’ foes met a similar fate.
The inside linebacker injured his shoulder during preseason play and missed his entire rookie season. Jonas Mouton watched Donald Butler recover from a training camp season-ending Achilles tear to become one of the team’s better players.
