09/14/2012 - Three Cal starters -- OT Matt Summers-Gavin (knee), OLB Chris McCain (shoulder) and TE Richard Rodgers (ankle) -- are questionable for the Ohio State game. The most critical of the three is probably McCain, who would be a vital part of the defensive scheme to prevent Ohio State QB Braxton Miller from getting to the edge. Miller has rushed for more than 140 yards in each of Ohio State's first two games and is particularly dangerous if he breaks containment. - The Sports Xchange

07/20/2012 - Top-five California prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. OL Matt Summers-Gavin...The Cleveland Browns surprised many back in April with the selection of offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz out of Cal with the fifth pick of the second round when several more recognizable offensive tackles were still available. Anonymity often comes with the territory as an offensive linemen but nowhere more than at Cal where high profile skill position prospects normally get most of the attention. The same lack of celebrity that made Schwartz a draft-day surprise could occur again in 2013 with Summers-Gavin, who in starting all 13 games a season ago at right tackle served as the blindside protection for southpaw quarterback Zach Maynard. Summers-Gavin was recognized by the conference coaches with honorable mention accolades last season in what was his first season at the position after playing in 19 games (starting 12 of them) at left guard over the 2009-10 seasons. Possessing the long, well-proportioned frame of an offensive tackle, Summers-Gavin may be able to remain on the outside at the next level, though he'd have to stay on the right side. His lack of top-notch agility in pass protection, as well as his comfort as a combination blocker could earn him consideration for a move back inside for an NFL club, as well. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
