Michael Calvin put some of his knee injury concerns to rest with an impressive Pro Day workout.
Calvin ran a 4.32-40 yard dash, which would’ve been the fastest recorded time at the combine. He also recorded an 11’1” broad jump and a 40.5” vertical leap.
Even with these impressive measurables, the former Cal product shouldn’t expect his name called come draft day.
This would open the door for a reunion with another speedy Golden Bear alumni DeSean Jackson.
At 6’3”, 210 pounds, Calvin doesn’t exactly fit the mold of Jackson, but would be a solid alternative on special teams.
Last year, Jackson looked to avoid contact on punt returns. His fear of injury during a contract season handicapped the Philadelphia Eagles’ offense with mediocre field position.
If signed, Calvin would provide the team with comparable speed in the return game, but in a sturdier frame.
