It was prescient of what the offseason would become for Duggan, Davis and receiver鈥Quentin Johnston, the team's first-round pick. The trio spent three seasons together being drafted by the Chargers in April, marking the first time a team drafted a quarterback and multiple skill position players from the same school in a single draft. 鈥淚t don't usually work out like this, so it was really a blessing,鈥 Johnston told ESPN. 鈥淲e came in not really knowing anybody, but we had each other.
