There have been 41 Bears drafted (eight 1st rounders) since Jeff Tedford became coach in 2001
Overall, this was a very strong draft for Cal and head coach Jeff Tedford. While they may have not had a first-round pick, they led the entire Pac-12 in players selected and had six additional players sign as undrafted free agents. This class will be remembered as having the second-most Bears drafted (tied with 1977 and 2008).
While this past recruiting season may have been a let-down due to the decommitments, Tedford now can show potential recruits that Cal sends athletes to the Pros while providing them with the highest education.
Here are some more Cal draft facts, according to calbears.com:
Cal has had two players selected in the first or second round of each of the last three drafts and at least one player selected in the second round or higher in each of the past six seasons.
Cal has had three players selected in the first three rounds of each of the last two drafts.
Cal had four first-round picks in three seasons from 2009-11, with at least one in all three, but did not have a first-round pick in 2012.
