Chargers add two more undrafted free agents

The San Diego Chargers are again busy on the undrafted free agent market, signing Kansas wide receiver Mark Simmons. They also added Washington State center Nick Mihlhauser.

Mark Simmons was the leading receiver on the Kansas squad last season, catching 44 balls for 631 yards and four touchdowns. He also added nine punt returns, averaging 12.2 per return.

At 5-foot-11, 185-pounds, Simmons finished second on the club as a junior with 48 receptions for 553 yards, including eight catches for 135 yards against a then sixth ranked Texas squad.

Nick Mihlhauser (6-3, 292) got the call within an hour after the draft ended. Which NFL team snapped him up?

"The Chargers did," said Mihlhauser.

The difference between getting drafted and signing as a free agent is often razor thin, and so it was for the athletic center out of Washington State.

"We were talking to them around the end of the sixth round," said Mihlhauser. "They said 'we don't know if we're going to pick you up in the seventh round or if we'll pick you up as a free agent', and they ended up taking me as a free agent."

Mihlhauser, who trained in New Jersey for parts of the offseason, ran a personal best in both the 40 and the L-shuttle at last month's pro day at WSU.
