Take a look back at every Cal Bear football player to be selected in the NFL draft

The 2020 NFL Draft is on the horizon and though we may only see but a trio of California Golden Bears to be selected in the draft, it got me wanting a list of all former Cal Bears to be drafted. I hit the record books and the draft websites to track down every California Golden Bear selected in an NFL draft since the draft’s inception.

And here they are:

So there’s that. Every Cal Bear selected since 1936. Yet, that didn’t do those players representing Cal in the pros justice. There were a number of players who went undrafted but still made a big impact in the league. I tracked down all the notable undrafted free agent signings who hailed from Cal as well.
