The Chargers traded up from the 28th spot to selected the West Bakersfield High product at twelve.

Mathews should get an excellent shot to start as a rookie and replace his idol Ladainian Tomlinson who was released in February after nine seasons in San Diego.

Mathews finished his Bulldog career with 1,800 rushing this season and a nation leading 150-yard per game average.
