Former Cal linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk was not invited to the NFL Combine, which came as a surprise to some, so he had to impress the 30 or so pro scouts during Thursday's Pro Day at Memorial Stadium.
Kunaszyk is the most likely of the Cal players to be drafted during the NFL Draft April 25-27, but even Kunaszyk is a long shot.
Other former Cal players who participated in Pro Day were Rusty Becker, Kamryn Bennett, Ian Bunting, Chase Forrest, Alex Funches, Patrick Laird, Patrick Mekari, Malik McMorris, Chris Palmer, Alonso Vera, Moe Ways and Vic Wharton III.
Kunaszyk said he spent time talking to scouts regarding schemes and defenses, and Kunaszyk figures that is an area in which he excels, considering his high football IQ.
Kunaszyk was generally satisfied with how he performanded on Thursday, but admitted there were some areas in which he thought he could do better. He specifically mentioned some of the position drills in which he thought he could have done more.
He acknowledges that the Pro Day results are important to pro scouts, but assumes the film of his play during games is more important. The game tape for Kunaszyk should be an asset, becasue he was among the top 10 in the nation in tackles per game from his inside linebaclker spot.
