Thirteen NFL teams showed up for California University's annual Pro Day workout at Adamson Stadium Monday, but not many players were on hand.

Thirteen players from Pennsylvania colleges turned out, including nine from Cal U.

Among the Vulcans to work out in front of NFL scouts was defensive back Rontez Miles, who also attended the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

Other Cal U players to work out at were linebacker Brett Diamond, defensive lineman Jason Kotes, quarterback Peter Lalich, offensive lineman Eric Kush, tight ends Morrell Presley and Blake Williamson, wide receiver Mario Washington and running back Lamont Smith.

Other college players from the state were offensive linemen Aaron McGlynn of Kutztown and Nolan Nearhoff of Robert Morris, wide receiver Kyle Fisher of Bloomsburg and tight end Ryan Zarnich of St. Francis.

The NFL teams represented were the Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans.

The players were tested in a variety of drills conducted at the NFL Combine, such as the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and three-cone drill, and participated in position work.

Former Cal U coach John Luckhardt started the Pro Day workouts in 2008 as a result of the 2007 Vulcan team that went 13-1 and had several potential NFL prospects.

The 2013 NFL Draft will be held in New York City on April 25-27. Over the last three years, three players from the PSAC have been selected in the NFL Draft with former Cal U defensive back Tommie Campbell being selected in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft by Tennessee.
