Cal has made quite the name for itself with three former Bears starring in the Super Bowl over the last three years. Daniel Lasco is the next running back to continue the famed RBU tradition, being drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the 7th round.

Lasco is one of the more decorated running backs in Cal history. Last season he broke into the top ten for rushing yards in school history and made one hell of an impression at the NFL combine. Have a look at his senior year highlights below:

"Lasco finished his career with 2,395 career all-purpose yards over 41 games and 15 starts including 1,872 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns on the ground to rank 10th on Cal's all-time list. Lasco was limited as a 2015 senior due to injury but had started the camapign considered one of the nation's top running backs after a breakthrough junior season in 2014 in which he rushed for 1,115 yards and tallied 1,471 rushing and receiving yards for the highest total in those categories by a Cal player since 2011 and 2008, respectively."
