Player guests included WR Keenan Allen & DB Josh Hill from Cal; LB Chase Thomas & C Sam Schwartzstein from Stanford; plus DE Travis Johnson & TE Ryan Otten from San Jose State. All six players are on various preseason "watch lists" at their respective positions. Players from each team were also interviewed as to their prospects for the upcoming 2012 season.
