BERKELEY – Cal will hold its annual pro timing day for former Golden Bears that are professional football prospects on Tuesday, March 18. The public portion of the event at Kabam Field at California Memorial Stadium is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. PT. Fans can enter Memorial Stadium through Gate 1 at the north end of venue beginning at 3:30 p.m. Fans are not allowed on the field and will be directed onto the concourse level into designated seating areas.
The prospects will be timed in the 40-yard dash, 20 and 60-yard shuttles, and 3 cone drill before going through position work at Memorial Stadium. Other measurable drills held earlier in the day will include the bench press, broad jump and vertical jump. The prospects will also go through a flexibility test and have their height, weight, hand width, arm length and wing span measured by personnel from NFL teams.
The list of participants has yet to be finalized but former Cal players who have completed their collegiate career are eligible. Prospective participants should contact the Cal strength and conditioning office to be added to the participant list.
In addition to being eligible for Cal’s Pro Timing Day a trio of former Golden Bears – DL Deandre Coleman, LB Khairi Fortt and TE Richard Rodgers – have been invited to the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine scheduled to take place Wednesday-Tuesday, Feb. 19-25 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
