Second-year running back Branden Oliver spoke to the newest Chargers at the NFL Rookie Symposium

Branden Oliver, the second-year running back and a breakout story for the Chargers in 2014, spoke to Chargers first-year players at the Rookie Symposium this week for 45 minutes.

"I shed some light on those guys on what I went through last year, and what they could expect," Oliver told Chargers.com. "I told them how different the media is.  In college, you might do an interview once or twice every other week.  But in the NFL, the media is in the locker room everyday throughout the week.  So you always have to be ready.  They'll ask you certain questions, and some reporters ask questions out of the ordinary."

One of Oliver's three touchdowns in 2014 came against the Chiefs in the final game of the season, one in which the Chiefs won, 19-7.
