INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Cornerbacks Marc Anthony and Steve Williams wrapped up the 2013 NFL Combine for former Cal players on Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Running back C.J. Anderson and offensive lineman Brian Schwenke also competed earlier in the event that began last Wednesday, while wide receiver Keenan Allen was present but did not participate in the measurable skills testing or on-field workouts due to a knee injury.
Williams had a vertical jump of 40.5 inches Monday that tied for first among cornerbacks and tied for third among all players at the combine. His broad jump of 128.0" was tied for fourth among cornerbacks, while his time of 6.89 in the 3 cone drill was tied 12th for cornerbacks.
Williams also caused a stir Tuesday when he was hand-timed at 4.25 in the 40-yard dash before being given an official electronic time of 4.42 that was tied for ninth among cornerbacks. He also participated Tuesday in the 20-yard shuttle (4.10) after starting his measurable skills testing Monday with the bench press (12 reps of 225 pounds).
Among cornerbacks Anthony was tied for fifth in the 3 cone drill (6.74) and tied for sixth in the 20-yard shuttle (4.07), while also finishing tied for 15th among all combine participants in the latter.

Anderson highlighted his combine performance Sunday by tying for third among running backs in the 20-yard shuttle with a time of 4.12. Anderson's official 4.60 time in the 40-yard dash ranked 15th among running backs, but according to Anderson's twitter account "22 teams clock[ed] me at 4.47 [or] 4.48 hand time." Anderson tied for 13th among running backs in the broad jump (119.0") and also participated in the vertical jump (32.0"), 3 cone drill (7.15) and bench press (17 reps of 225 pounds).
