Football alumni to begin NFL camp

Grand Valley State University alums Charles Johnson and Tim Lelito both entered the professional ranks and joined the fraternity of Lakers in the NFL last Saturday, a crowning accomplishment to most any football career. Making a final 53-man roster and staying in the league is the next step.

Johnson, a seventh round pick (216 overall) of the Green Bay Packers and Lelito, an undrafted free agent signed by the New Orleans Saints, will both enter rookie minicamps May 10-12.

This will be the first opportunity for them and approximately 30 other fellow rookies to get a taste of the NFL on the field and in the classroom and give coaching staffs a reason to keep them around. Voluntary OTA’s will begin May 20-22, mandatory minicamp June 4-6.
