NFL Combine 2013 results: Cal has strong showing

Stanford and Cal had good showings at the NFL Combine, but it was the latter who really stood out.


The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine is just wrapping up, and the Bay Area had some solid representation in Indianapolis. Both schools have multiple players who might be considered first-round picks in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft,

None of those top players put up an eye-popping performance at the combine, though their draft stock was already doing well. Zach Ertz from Stanford did well but didn't make headlines based on his performance.

Ertz ran a 4.76 40-yard dash time, which put him at No. 10 among all tight ends at the combine. He did manage an impressive 24 reps on the bench press, which was second-highest for his position, behind Vance McDonald. He also landed the third-fastest 3-cone drill among tight ends, with a 7.08.

Cal offensive lineman Brian Schwenke may have boosted his draft stock with a strong performance in drills. He put up 31 reps in the bench press and ran a 4.99 40-yard dash. On top of that, he made it 108.0 inches on the broad jump, which was high for the position.

Cal defensive back Steve Williams ran an impressive 4.42 in the 40-yard dash and had a vertical jump of 40.5 inches, which was tied for third-highest at the combine. He also managed 128.0 inches in the broad jump. In fact, Cal's defensive backs as a whole seemed to fair well, as you can see on the tracker here.
