Happy Tuesday to all, and on this fine day California, Eastern Michigan, Richmond, and Southern Illinois will have pro days. A slow day, but prospects still to be found. Tomorrow will really get cooking, with 12 colleges having pro days, and 9 colleges on Thursday.

Today Cal, who normally produces solid NFL players will be the major college of note. However, this year, the Golden Bears didn't produce any big names for the 2015 draft. The pro day will be crucial for the small handful of players that may crack an NFL camp, because their draft status is anything but certain.

- Cal's leading receiver Chris Harper didn't even receive a combine invite, and if that doesn't give a player some added motivation I don't know what would. Harper had 52 receptions, 634 yards, and six touchdowns last season. The most impressive stat of Harper's may be recording a reception in 29 straight games played. Harper left a year early and his game film is solid, he can get open and has enough speed to gain separation. A team at the very least will put Harper on their practice squad and hope that he can blossom into a good pro. He isn't Desean Jackson caliber coming out of Cal, but his build and shiftiness in the open field to Jackson is similar. Harper could go anywhere from round five to being an undrafted free agent.

- Also worth noting is Southern Illinois running back Malcolm Agnew. Before his season was cut short due to an ankle injury, Agnew ranked in the top 20 nationally in rushing, all purpose yards, and touchdowns. Prior to Southern Illinois Agnew played two seasons for Oregon State, where he ran for 692 yards and six touchdowns. Maybe the 49ers looking into Agnew wouldn't be a bad idea, as being around an all-purpose back like Reggie Bush could improve the player he is.

That's it for today, tomorrow will bring many more teams and many more names. Pro days for tomorrow include Baylor, Boise State, Boston College, Charleston Southern, Georgia, Louisiana-Monroe, Memphis, Michigan State, San Jose State, Temple, Virginia Tech, and Western Kentucky.
