Cal Junior Wide receiver Kenny Lawler officially announced today that he is forgoing his senior season to head to the NFL. Lawler will join the entire graduating senior class of wideouts in Bryce Treggs, Trevor Davis, Maurice Harris, Stephen Anderson and Darius Powe in their quest to get drafted!
I am proud to announce that I will be entering the 2016 draft! Thank you to everyone for all the support! Go Bears! pic.twitter.com/3hMALqIpus— Kenny Lawler (@K_Law2nice) January 5, 2016
Lawler finished 2015 with 52 catches for 658 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was named first team All-Pac-12 for 2015 and played in all 13 games despite a nagging injury towards the end of the year.
Here's some of the highlights from the 2014 season. Just look at these insane catches.
Of course with Jared Goff leaving and now Lawler, this means that the Golden Bears will be replacing almost all of their passing offensive players from 2015. So big shoes (and WR gloves) to fill for sure. Only Ray Hudson and Chad Hansen caught more than ten passes among the Cal wideouts
Thank you Kenny for all you did for Cal Football and best of luck in the NFL. GO BEARS AND THANKS KENNY!
