NFL Draft 2012: Cal Linebacker Mychal Kendricks To Visit St. Louis Rams

California Golden Bears linebacker Mychal Kendricks will make a pre-draft visit to the St. Louis Rams in the coming week, according to reports. Kendricks has been projected for the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft and he has garnered plenty of interest after putting on a show in his workouts. The Rams have one of the first picks in the second round, so he may come off the board sooner rather than later on Day 2.

Kendricks was a standout linebacker at Cal throughout his career and scouts have been drooling over his potential to become a star at the next level. Here is what Mock Draft Club had to say about him:

Positives: Kendricks speed and athleticism that immediately leaps off the film. He has crazy sideline-to-sideline type range, and plays with a relentless motor. Flies around the field like a kid on a sugar high, and doesn't show any signs of wearing down as the game goes on. Agressive and fearless. Fights through blocks with tenacity. Doesn't give up on plays, and has the wheels to make tackles even when the play isn't ran at him. Strong, consistent tackler, making use of 240 pound frame and his strength to wrap up the ball carrier. Very strong defender against the run. Demonstrates tremendous instincts, awareness, and vision of what the offense is trying to do.

Sure seems like he has all the tools to make an NFL franchise very happy for years to come. We'll see where he ends up in a little more than three weeks.

2012 NFL Draft: Cincinnati Bengals To Work Out Ernest Owusu

Cal defensive end Ernest Owusu has been lingering around NFL Draft boards. Owusu had a solid NFL Pro Day at Cal and has started to pop up on NFL Draft boards. He could be a late steal in the draft if the right team picks him.

It's starting to look like NFL teams are starting to show more interest in Owusu. Aaron Wilson has more updates on the situation.

California defensive end Ernest Owusu is scheduled to visit the Tennessee Titans and the Cincinnati Bengals, per a source. Owusu is a 6-foot-4, 277-pounder who bench pressed 225 pounds 39 times at his campus Pro Day workout. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds and posted a 30-inch vertical leap, a 9-4 broad jump, a 4.50 20-yard shuttle and a 7.20 three-cone drill. Owusu wasn't invited to the combine, but had 30 tackles, seven for losses and 4 1/2 sacks.

Owusu is the second of the two Cal defensive linemen that have been popping up on draft boards. Trevor Guyton is likely to go first among the two, but that doesn't mean Owusu won't get his shot. Owusu had a solid senior season.

Could Guyton and Owusu be the third and fourth Cal defensive linemen to be drafted in three seasons?

2012 NFL Mock Draft: New York Giants Select Mychal Kendricks

Not many people were thinking that Cal linebacker Mychal Kendricks would be a first round draft pick a few months ago, but now the Pac-12 defensive player of the year is soaring up draft boards after an outstanding performance at the combine. Kendricks could have the potential to be a great linebacker at the next level, particularly at the coveted middle linebacker position with his versatility, speed and athleticism. He can cover, rush the quarterback, and tackle in the open field, all very useful skills.

DraftTek has him going late in the first round, 32nd overall to the New York Giants.

Tough decision here for the Giants. While the team desperately needs a MLB, Mychal Kendricks is a reach at 32. I don't believe that the front office sees Blackburn or Jones as the long term solution. Goff is still a FA - the Giants aren't chomping at the bit to resign him. Barring a trade up, Kendricks - Pac-12 DPOY - in Rd 1 may be the only chance the Giants have at an impact MLB. The Giants have whiffed at MLB selections in the middle rounds; 2012 might see a chance in policy. ~ Bill Bliss

Hard to believe coming off another dominant playoff run to another championship, but the Giants could use some upgrading in the middle of their defense if they can get it. Kendricks could be a crucial fill-in.

Mychal Kendricks Shines At 2012 NFL Combine

Cal linebacker Mychal Kendricks has flown under the radar in the run-up to the NFL Draft. He doesn't have typical size of the linebacker, as he has a diminutive height. Even despite winning Pac-12 Player Of The Year honors, it didn't seem like Kendricks was getting the respect he deserved. Kendricks needed to show he could do more.

If Kendricks does end up getting drafted high, he can credit the start of his rise to his outstanding performance at the 2012 NFL Combine.

Kendricks also managed a 39.5 inch vertical jump, a 127 inch broad jump (both top marks for any linebacker overall), and a 4.19 second 20 yard shuttle, earning near unanimous top honors in all those categories. Kendricks was praised by Mike Mayock of the NFL Network for what he did.

Kendricks might very well have put himself on the market as a second-third round pick at the very least. Pro Day will be crucial for him to show what he can do.

NFL Combine Schedule 2012: Marvin Jones Looks To Boost NFL Draft Stock With Drills

The 2012 NFL Combine moves into its fifth day on Sunday, which is looking to be the most high profile day of the week. Running backs, wide receivers and quarterbacks run their position-specific drills as well as the uniform 40-yard dash, 3-cone drill, shuttle run and vertical and broad jump. Although the latter are meant to show a bit more about athleticism than football-specific skills, they can be money winners and losers for certain players.

Cal will be represented on Sunday by wide receiver Marvin Jones. The receiver flew under the radar next to Keenan Allen, but he has great hands and really stepped up the week of Senior Bowl practices. He is not a burner, but if he can put together some solid work at the various drills, he could see his draft stock sneak up. He already equaled Missouri's Jerrell Jackson for the top bench press performance among wide receivers. A few more strong performances on Sunday and he could take a big step forward.

Here's the full schedule for all groups. You can watch the majority of the action for this year's NFL Combine on NFL Network or streaming live at NFL.com.

Sunday

Group 4 (QB, WR), Group 5 (QB, WR), Group 6 (RB)

Workout (timing, stations, skill drills), departure from Indianapolis

Group 7 (DL), Group 8 (DL), Group 9 (LB)

NFLPA Meeting, psychological testing, interviews

Group 10 (DB), Group 11 (DB)

Measurements, medical examinations, media, psychological testing, interviews

NFL Combine 2012 Results: Mitchell Schwartz Drill Results

Cal offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz flies under the radar compared to top-flight prospects like Matt Kalil of USC and Jonathan Martin of Stanford. Schwartz has played at left tackle for most of his Cal career, but is probably in better shape to be a right tackle at the next level. That would allow him to deal with defensive ends that are stronger but not as speedy and versatile.

Schwartz did his NFL Combine drills today. He registered a 5.45 second 40-Yard Dash, 23 reps on the Bench Press, 26.5 inch Vertical Jump, 89 inch Broad Jump, 7.86 second run on the Three Cone Drill and 4.87 second 20-Yard Shuttle.

Overall, they're not spectacular numbers, though they're not terrible either. Schwartz is still looking at the chance to be a special teams player right off the bat and work his way up from there.

NFL Combine 2012: Andrew Luck, Marvin Jones Get Measurements On Friday

The California Golden Bears and Stanford Cardinal both have some great talents that will be available in the 2012 NFL Draft. Friday will see the beginning of examinations for quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs and both schools will have players participating in them.

Stanford QB Andrew Luck, WR Chris Owusu and Cal WR Marvin Jones are a part of this group who will go through the process of getting various measurements, medical examinations, performing media, taking psychological testing and doing interviews with teams and NFL professionals.

This group won't get to the on-field assessments until Sunday. Saturday will consist of an NFLPA meeting, psychological testing and, of course, more interviews. It's a long weekend for these guys and it's only just starting.

NFL Combine 2012 Results: Mitchell Schwartz Measurements

Cal offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz flies under the radar compared to top-flight prospects like Matt Kalil of USC and Jonathan Martin of Stanford. Schwartz has played at left tackle for most of his Cal career, but is probably in better shape to be a right tackle at the next level. That would allow him to deal with defensive ends that are stronger but not as speedy and versatile.

Schwartz put up his measurements today. According to WalterFootball, he's listed at 6'5", weighed up at 318 pounds and has a wingspan of 33 1/2". Those are pretty good figures, although they're probably not protoypical of a left tackle. He'd probably be better off on the right side if he fully develops into the player they think he's capable of developing into.

2012 NFL Scouting Combine: David DeCastro, Marvin Jones Have Chance To Prove Themselves

The California Golden Bears and Stanford Cardinal both have some great talents that will be available in the 2012 NFL Draft. All of them have some work they could be doing in trying to improve their stock in this week's Combine.

Two of these players are expected to be among the ones that could be drafted the highest for each team. Stanford offensive guard David DeCastro will obviously fall behind Andrew Luck and probably Jonathan Martin, but he is a bona fide first round pick. Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated reports that a switch in position could do DeCastro's draft stock well.

DeCastro closely resembles Steve Hutchinson on the field with his aggressive nature and dominant strength. Scouts wonder if DeCastro can make the move from guard to right tackle in the NFL. He's listed at 6-foot-5 on the Stanford website, the perfect height for a right tackle prospect. If his Combine measurement is close to that number and DeCastro turns in a good workout, franchises around the league could place him on their draft board at the right tackle position. His draft stock would then soar.

Former Cal wideout Marvin Jones has been performing quite well as one of the top under-the-radar receiver prospects, and he could make a further move up the board at the Combine.
Jones was cast as a possession wideout with minimal upside entering the 2011 campaign. He topped off a tremendous season by impressing NFL decision-makers at the Senior Bowl. The question remains: How fast is Jones? If he matches his 40 times in recent workouts (low 4.4s), Jones will be viewed in a whole new light and could jump into the second round.

2012 NFL Combine: Cal Football Players Attending Include Mitchell Schwartz, Mychal Kendricks, Marvin Jones

There will be six California Golden Bears attending the 2012 NFL Combine. Here's a brief glimpse at all of them courtesy of Comcast Sports Net.

  • Offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz is the Cal player likely to be the guy who gets picked first, because hey, everyone needs an offensive tackle! Schwartz played mostly left tackle in college, although his natural fit on the next level is probably at the right spot.
  • Wide receiver Marvin Jones is not going to overwhelm you with speed or strength, but he has an impressive vertical and is good at catching almost every pass that's thrown to him.
  • Linebacker Mychal Kendricks is just a strong all-around defender who can play against the run and the pass. He's versatile enough to be a solid producer if he gets the chance on the next stage.
  • Defensive end Trevor Guyton had to sit on the bench while Tyson Alualu and Cameron Jordan were the main starters, but Guyton stepped up and proved he could do his part as well in a 3-4.
  • Safety Sean Cattouse struggled to satay consistent, but there's no denying his measurables and athleticism. Can he make the right decisions in reading the defense?
  • Punter Bryan Anger is one of the top guys available this year and has been an outstanding college punter throughout his career. Can he find a spot among 32?

2012 NFL Combine: A Quick Reference Guide To the Player Drills

The NFL Combine is made up of several tests, meant to measure a number of different things - athleticism in general, top-end speed, explosiveness, agility, power, and strength. Intelligence, skills, hand-eye coordination, maturity. You name it. Essentially, the skills needed to play at a high level in the NFL.

Bay Area fans may have a particular interest in watching Stanford's Andrew Luck, Jonathan Martin, and David Decastro as they look to boost their stock, and Cal's Mychal Kendricks, Trevor Guyton, Mitchell Schwartz will look to move up team's draft boards. So - what should you be watching?

Fans like to place a lot of emphasis on the '40-time' a player records and that's typically the number that gets thrown around the most, but there are many tests to monitor as you watch the Combine this week. The typical tests administered at the Combine include: 40-yard dash, bench press (225 lb repetitions), vertical jump, broad jump, 20 yard shuttle, 3 cone drill, 60-yard shuttle, position-specific drills, interviews - each team is allotted 60 interviews in 15-minute intervals, physical measurements, injury evaluation, drug screen, the Cybex test and the Wonderlic Test. Let's run through them quickly.

The 40: Yes, this is the sexiest of them all. The 40-yard dash measures how quickly the athlete can run 40 yards, starting from a dead stop. This test is broken down into splits as well - 10 yards and 20 yards, to measure acceleration vs top-end speed. Fast split times indicate quick twitch acceleration and is valuable for any player in this league.

A good 40-time is going to be in the 4.4 to 4.5 second range for receivers, running backs, and defensive backs. 4.6-4.8 is what you could expect from a lot of the other positions - linebackers, defensive ends, tight ends, and some quarterbacks. Most linemen are going to run 4.9 or higher. If you see anyone run in the 4.3s or even the 4.2s, you're seeing something special.

Bench: This is mainly for the big guys - linemen and linebackers. It measures strength and stamina, mostly. Oregon State's Stephen Paea set the all-time Combine record last year with 49 reps at 225 pounds but anywhere in the 30s is pretty good. Guys with longer arms don't do as well because they're lifting the weight further, but in general I don't think teams look too much into the bench press test, unless a player just does horribly. That would indicate lack of dedication most likely - failure to hit the weights or prepare yourself.

Vertical Jump: This test tells teams how much lower body explosiveness a player has. You're not allowed to run and jump; you take off from a standing position, and a benchmark for the elite group in terms of vertical jump is 38" to 42". Anything more than that, you're looking at a freak of nature. Well, all these guys are kind of freaks in that sense, but 43", 44" or more is pretty rare. Virgil Green of Nevada hit 42.5" and Jonathan Baldwin of the Chiefs hit 42" on his vert last year to lead the way.

I'd say this test is probably more important for the receivers and defensive backs but really, lower body strength and explosiveness is pretty important for any player.

Broad Jump: Similar to the vertical, this test measures lower body strength and power. Explosiveness. The player jumps forward as far as they can from a standstill. 10 feet is the baseline for 'good', but if you get into the 10'6" range, you're looking impressive. Julio Jones blew everyone out of the water last year when he registered an 11'3" broadjump. The recent best was Cincinnati's Jerome Simpson in 2009, who jumped 11'4".

20 yard Shuttle (AKA "short shuttle"): Also referred to as the "5-10-5", it's a test of a player's lateral movement ability. The player basically starts in the middle of an area that's 10 yards long - he bursts out of a 3-point stance and fun five yards to the right, switches gears and go ten to the left, then again to the right to finish off. This drill is a lot more important than many people believe - some say it's more important than the 40-yard dash because it measures short-area quickness and agility, things any player on the NFL field requires. A good test in this area can get you noticed. Boise State's Austin Pettis set the bar last year with a 3.88 second short shuttle. Anything below 4-flat though, and you're getting looks.

3-Cone Drill: Similar to the 20-yard shuttle in importance. It measures change of direction, short-area burst, agility, and importantly, balance. Also known as the "L" drill. Players start out in a three point stance at the first cone, run forward five yards to the second, change direction back to where they started, change direction again and back to the second cone again. Instead of stopping there, they hang a right and around the third cone at the end of the "L". Coming back, the player again makes a 90 degree turn to their left then through the finish. Basically, it measures a players ability to keep their speed up through sharp turns and is especially important for receivers, corners, and defensive ends.

Benchmark for 'good' is 7 seconds. Benchmark for 'elite' - 6.5 seconds. Jeff Maehl turned some heads last year and ran a 6.42 for the best time at the Combine. He wasn't drafted, but caught on with Texas as an UDFA. Teams will be watching this time very closely, especially for those three positions.

-------------

Those are the mains physical tests to keep an eye on. A good 40-time will get a player some recognition, but a strong 3-cone drill and/or short-shuttle makes a big difference as well. You may have the best hands in the world as a receiver, but if you can't make quick cuts and maintain your speed, you're going to have more trouble against elite cornerbacks in the NFL. Visa versa as well for the defensive backs, and obviously for defensive ends, if you can't get by a left tackle your career at that spot may not last long.

Teams will also put players through positional drills to test their skills in catching, coverage, throwing, and a myriad of other 'football' skills. They'll interview players to evaluate their maturity, dedication, intelligence, etc. They will administer the Wonderlic Test, which is a timed test to measure IQ. The Cybex test is meant to measure fitness and joint movements.

The NFL Combine is the first best way for front offices to gather information on the players in which they are potentially going to invest millions of dollars. It's going to be exciting.

Senior Bowl 2012 NFL Scouting: North Defeats South 23-13

The North team defeated the South by a score of 23-13 in the annual Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. on Saturday afternoon. Playing in the game were two former California Bears looking to improve their draft stock, wide receiver Marvin Jones and offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz.

After the first quarter passed with just a field goal from both team, Cal receiver Jones scored the games first touchdown by catching an eight-yard pass from Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Russell Wilson. This put the North team up by a score of 10-3 and they never relinquished their lead. Unfortunately, after making that one catch, Jones was knocked out of the game with a knee injury.

The draft is still a couple months away so the book is not completely closed on Wilson and Schwartz when it comes to draft order as they still have the combine and team visits to boost their stock.

Senior Bowl 2012 NFL Scouting: Cal Bears WR Marvin Jones Leaves Game With Knee Injury

According to the Senior Bowl official Twitter account, California Bears senior wide receiver Marvin Jones has left the game with a knee injury and he will not be returning to the game.

Before he left the game, Jones only caught one pass for eight yards. He caught 62 passes in 2011 for 846 yards and three touchdowns and Scout.com says he has the potential to play at the next level.

Runs crisp routes and is tough to jam at the line of scrimmage. Is quick off the line and catches the ball well in traffic. Uses his size to overmatch corners. Runs a little stiff.

Senior Bowl 2012 NFL Scouting: Cal Bears Players Marvin Jones, Mitchell Schwartz Get Time In National Spotlight

The 2012 Senior Bowl is an annual contest that gathers standout college football players from all over the country. This end-of-the-year All-Star game is a potential golden opportunity for players who are about to enter the 2012 NFL Draft. The two teams will be coached by NFL coaches, work with NFL training scouts and perform in front of a multitude of scouts, front-office representatives and evaluators.

The game takes place in Mobile on Saturday, January 28. Two California Golden Bears players are making sure that Northern California is represented at this year's game.

Marvin Jones - Wide Receiver - California Golden Bears - North Team

Jones put together a solid season for the Golden Bears in 2011. He finished the year with 62 catches, 846 yards and three touchdowns. He has already been turning heads in this week's practices leading up to the game and has been drawing comparisons to Donald Driver, among others.

Mitchell Schwartz - Offensive Tackle - California Golden Bears - North Team

At 6'5 and 317 pounds, Schwartz is the very vision of the prototypical offensive lineman. Following his redshirt season in 2007, Schwartz has started all 51 games of his collegiate career, more than proving his durability. His 2011 campaign saw him named to the first-team All-Pac-12. He was named Cal's Most Valuable Offensive Lineman in each of the last three years.

2012 Senior Bowl: Cal Receiver Marvin Jones Impresses At Practice

With the 2012 Senior Bowl coming up on January 28th, the North and South teams are in the midst of practice and preparation. For players like Cal Golden Bears wide receiver Marvin Jones, it's a chance to make an impression before making the impression, so to speak.

Football writer and analyst Matt Waldman liked what he saw out of Jones during day three of practice.

Jones was consistently the best receiver on the field setting up breaks and the only drop I saw against competition in three days (no that there were more, but I don’t recall and I watched receivers closely) came today on a crossing route where Jones looked up field to run before he secured the pass. He made redeemed himself on the next play with a diving out at the sideline where he had to scoop the ball off the ground and keep the top half of his body inbounds.

When I watch Jones on tape and in this practice, the potential I see in him is similar to Donald Driver. Not a huge player, but physical, technically sound, quick, good after the catch, and knowledgeable in the West Coast offense.
