With the NFL draft beginning tomorrow, several former Bears have high hopes of being drafted to pro rosters over the next three days, and as a top ten provider of NFL talent, California is expected pad their currently impressive number of players in the NFL this weekend.

CAL FOOTBALL NFL DRAFT NOTES

• Cal has had 26 first-round picks and 214 selections overall since the NFL Draft began in 1936.

• Cal has had 36 NFL Draft selections and eight first-round picks in the 10 drafts that have taken place since head coach Jeff Tedford arrived prior to the 2002 NFL Draft.

• Cal has had four first-round picks in the past three years with at least one in all three.

• Cal has had at least one player selected in the second round or higher in each of the past five seasons.

• The most Cal players selected in a single draft were the 10 chosen in 1952, while the Golden Bears have had six players chosen twice (1997, 2008) and five on six occasions (1950, ’83, ’91, ‘94, ’96, 2005).

• Steve Bartkowski (1975) is the only Cal player to ever be selected with the first pick overall in the NFL Draft.

• Tyson Alualu (Jacksonville, 10th overall, 2010) and Cameron Jordan (Saints, 24th overall, 2011) made Cal only the second team in the Pac-10 to have ever had defensive linemen selected in the first round in back-to-back drafts (USC is the other)

• Cal became the first Pac-10/12 team in 40 years to have two first-round selections in the same year that no other Pac-10/12 team had a single first-round selection when Tyson Alualu (Jacksonville, 10th overall) and Jahvid Best (Lions, 30th overall) were both first-round selections in 2010. USC’s Al Cowlings (Bills, 5th overall) and Sid Smith (Chiefs, 26th overall) were both picked in the first round of the 1970 NFL draft, while no other Pac-10 team had a first-round selection.
