The six-foot receiver played in 11 games in his sophomore campaign, reeling in 34 passes for 302 yards and a career high three touchdowns.
The Graham, North Carolina native improved in his junior year with 39 catches in 12 games played and a total of 367 yards with one touchdown.
Johnathan Lloyd posted career highs, in games played, receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns in his senior season in 2018.
The current LA Ram had 51 receptions for 604 total yards in 13 games, with five touchdowns on the season, with his best game of the season coming in a loss against Pittsburgh when he caught seven passes for 136 yards and a touchdown, but the Blue Devils lost 54-45.
The Los Angeles Rams did not have a need at wide receiver entering the 2019 NFL Draft and did not select a wide out with any of its eight picks, but have signed a bunch of receivers and running backs as undrafted free agents to join Lloyd in competing in the teams upcoming rookie minicamp and potentially an invite to training camp.
Johnathan Lloyd joins his wide receiver partner T.J. Rahming, along with Joe Giles-Harris, Daniel Helm, and Davis Koppenhaver to sign with NFL teams as UDFA’s with quarterback Daniel Jones being the only Blue Devil to be selected in the NFL Draft, going with the No. 6 overall to the New York Giants.
