TCU QB Max Duggan picked by Chargers in seventh round of draft
The Los Angeles Chargers selected TCU quarterback and Heisman Trophy runner-up Max Duggan with the No. 239 overall pick in the seventh round of the 2023 NFL Draft on Saturday.
In Los Angeles, Duggan could compete for the backup job behind starter Justin Herbert. Easton Stick was the only other quarterback on the Chargers’ roster entering the draft.
Duggan threw for 3,698 yards, 32 touchdowns, and eight interceptions and added 423 rushing yards and nine rushing TDs in 2022 while guiding the Horned Frogs to their first College Football Playoff appearance. TCU beat Michigan to reach the national title game before losing 65-7 to Georgia.
In 47 games over four seasons at TCU, Duggan racked up 9,618 passing yards, 73 touchdowns, and 28 picks and added 28 rushing touchdowns.
He was the 14th quarterback selected in the draft. Twelve quarterbacks went in the first five rounds, a record for the common draft era.
