Charles Nicholas Bawden (born June 22, 1996) is an American football fullback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at San Diego State.

College career[edit]

Bawden began his collegiate career as a quarterback at San Diego State. During his freshman season he started two games for the Aztecs, completing 13 of 38 passes for 147 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, he then switched to the fullback position after the season. He caught 15 passes for 137 yards as a junior, and 15 for 103 yards and his first touchdown this past season. In back to back years, Bawden was the lead blocker for two different 2,000 yard rushers in Donnel Pumphrey and Rashaad Penny. This was the first time this had been done in the history of college football.[citation needed] Both of those running backs were also the leading rushers in college football in 2016 and 2017.

Professional career[edit]

Bawden was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the seventh round (237th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft.[1] On June 6, 2018, it was reported that Bawden suffered a torn ACL in OTAs and was ruled out for the 2018 season.[2] He was placed on injured reserve on July 24, 2018.[3]
