2024 NFL draft: Chargers hosting RB Blake Corum on visit

The Chargers are hosting former Michigan running back Blake Corum on a pre-draft visit, Corum said on the Rich Eisen Show.

“I’m excited to go talk to Coach Harbaugh and the new staff that I don’t already know and see what it’s like out there,” Corum said.

After signing Gus Edwards, Los Angeles is still building their backfield and they see Corum, who is familiar with Jim Harbaugh, as a potential target.

Corum was productive for the Wolverines this past season, rushing for 1,245 yards and a program-record 27 touchdowns en route to the school’s national title. He finished his collegiate career with a whopping 58 rushing scores.

Corum isn’t the youngest player, set to be 24 this upcoming season, and he already has plenty of mileage used. But he has the patience, vision, and quickness to be an effective back in the NFL.

Corum projects as a mid-round selection.
