The Los Angeles Chargers opened the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft by selecting Iowa linebacker Nick Niemann at No. 185 overall.

Niemann (6-foot-3, 234 pounds) finished his Hawkeye career with 155 total tackles (7.5 for loss). He was Academic All-Big Ten in each of his four years at Iowa and was third-team All-Big Ten in 2020.

Los Angeles has now selected three players from the Big Ten. Niemann joins a linebacking corps that includes 2019 draft pick Drue Tranquill and one of last year's first-round selections, Kenneth Murray.

The Chargers' next scheduled pick is at No. 198 overall in the sixth round.
