Former Cal football players Kyle Kragen, Daniel Lasco and Bryce Treggs all contributed to winning teams Saturday in postseason college all-star bowl games for draft-eligible seniors.
Daniel Lasco led all rushers with 62 yards on six carries as well as the longest run of the game with a 42-yarder in the first quarter to help the West to a 29-9 victory over the East at the Shrine Game. Check out Lasco scampering for 42 here.

Here's an interview Lasco did during the week.
In the other all-star game, Kragen had 2.5 sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss with three total tackles in an 18-17 victory for Team National over Team American at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl played at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, Calif. Treggs also played for Team National and caught one pass for 15 yards while adding a 26-yard kick return.
Here are Kragen's two sacks.
Kragen also had a strong strip sack fumble recovery as well.
Some thoughts from Golden Gate Sports on Kragen's performance.
Entering the week prior to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, Kragen was projected to go undrafted, but his great performance in the game will surely generate some buzz. With good workouts and pro days leading up to the draft, Kragen can continue to make a case to be drafted in the late rounds by a team looking for defensive end or outside linebacker depth. Even if he still goes undrafted, Kragen has certainly showcased himself well enough to get a shot as an undrafted free agent.
Treggs talked about what he has to do to improve before his Pro Day at Cal in his Q&A with ESPN.
What do you have to offer an NFL team?
BT: I offer something unique. In the NFL you see a lot of bigger receivers, so for those teams that have a lot of big receivers, but don't really have a good route runner on the inside that can also go to the outside, I supply them with that and can take the top off with some speed.
