It wasn’t a good day for Cal’s “Big Three” linebackers unit. Zack Follett couldn’t run at all after tweaking his hamstring training last week. Anthony Felder, who wasn’t able to run the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine because of a hip flexor he incurred doing the broad jump, pulled up with a hamstring injury while running the 40 today. And Worrell Williams suffered a strained groin while running the 40.
One player who really stood out was fullback Will Ta’ufo’ou. Fullbacks aren’t drafted often in the NFL these days, but Ta’ufo’ou looked good during drills and catching passes from Nate Longshore during Longshore’s passing workout.
Defensive end Rulon Davis didn’t participate. He said he was satisfied enough with his performance at the NFL combine, but he did show up as an onlooker.
Others that worked out for the scouts were tight end Cameron Morrah, wide receivers Sean Young and LaReylle Cunningham, defensive tackle Mika Kane and long snapper Nick Sundberg. There also were some former Cal players working out, such as quarterback Joe Ayoob, offensive lineman Erik Robertson, wide receiver Burl Toler, and placekicker Tom Schneider.
