The journey is now complete for multi-talented Legedu Naanee. Naanee (6-2, 228) was drafted today by the San Diego Chargers in the fifth round of the National Football League Draft. Naanee joins teammate Gerald Alexander, who was drafted yesterday in the second round by the Detroit Lions.
Naanee made the transition towards the receiving end of the football easily, being named to the All-Western Athletic Conference first team as a senior. Naanee led the versatile Bronco attack with 34 catches and six touchdowns and finished second with 522 receiving yards. He averaged 15.4 yards per catch and also rushed seven times for 90 yards.
As a junior, Naanee tied for second with 34 catches for 483 yards and a team-leading six touchdown catches.
Way to go Legedu—we're proud of you!
