In a new suit and fresh Chargers cap, Ryan Mathews faced the San Diego media for the first time Friday.

Thursday night the Chargers moved up sixteen spots to draft the former Fresno State tailback with the 12th overall pick.

It's a dream come true for Mathews, who grew up rooting for the Bolt.

Now he's being asked to fill the shoes of his favorite player Ladainian Tomlinson who was released in February.
