WR Ramses Barden runs well during his pro day workout

Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo was originally scheduled to run its pro day earlier this week, but decided to move it back and combine it with San Jose State’s pro day today.

The headliner for Cal Poly was WR Ramses Barden. The lanky wideout measured in at 6-foot-6 1/4-inch, 227 pounds and ran the 40 in 4.51 and 4.55 seconds. He had a 10-foot, 2-inch broad jump and ran a 7.10 three-cone drill.

Barden was said to have caught the ball very well and he had his college quarterback Jonathan Dally throwing passes to him.
