03/16/2013 - 2013 Cal PA Pro Day: California (Pa.) FS Rontez Miles looks like mid-round possibility...Representatives from 13 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at California University of Pennsylvania on March 11, where Rontez Miles - who participated at the NFL Scouting Combine - was the key attraction at a workout held outdoors.

Miles (5-foot-11 7/8, 203 pounds), a free safety, ran the short shuttle in 4.15 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.85 seconds. Due to windy conditions, Miles opted not to run the 40-yard dash after his agent advised him that he ran well enough in the 40 at the combine (officially 4.62 seconds). Miles is a mid-round pick possibility in the 2013 NFL Draft. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
