Los Angeles Chargers Sign Ladd McConkey


The Los Angeles Chargers today signed rookie wide receiver Ladd McConkey (selected No. 34 overall). The Bolts have now signed all nine members of their 2024 draft class.

McConkey was a key contributor to Georgia's run to win a College Football Playoff National Championship in 2022, earning second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors and recording career highs in receptions (58), receiving yards (762) and touchdown grabs (seven). In the Bulldogs' victory in the National Championship game, McConkey hauled in five catches for 88 yards (17.6 avg.) and two scores, while adding a 14-yard carry. That season, he averaged 12.3 yards per punt return, totaling 197 yards on 16 punt returns.

Over three seasons at Georgia (2021-23) after redshirting in 2020, McConkey caught 119 passes for 1,687 yards (14.2 avg.) and 14 touchdowns, adding four touchdowns and 216 yards on the ground). In 2023, he won the Wuerffel Trophy — which honors the player who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement — and was a finalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy, also known as the 'Academic Heisman.' McConkey becomes the highest-drafted Georgia Bulldog by the Chargers and the first wide receiver chosen by the Bolts in the second round since Vincent Jackson in 2005.
