According to Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald, Dolphins wide receiver Legedu Naanee has been a pleasant surprise so far in training camp and is set to start this week’s preseason game alongside Chad Johnson.

“Naanee, the journeyman receiver who signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins in the spring, has rocketed to the top of a team’s depth chart after a string of solid practices. Naanee, who caught a team-high five passes in last weekend’s scrimmage, is projected to start Friday’s exhibition opener against Tampa Bay.

“And for the first time in a long time, he’s completely healthy, comfortable and confident,” wrote Beasley.

“I feel like I’ve caught the ball well, been able to beat press coverage,” Naanee said.. “I feel pretty good. Every season is a fresh start.”

It looks like the Dolphins could end up getting a significant return from both Naanee and Johnson after signing both as free agents this offseason.
