03/12/12 - There were nearly two dozen NFL teams represented at the University of Montana’s pro day on Friday, and any number of them would like to have Caleb McSurdy suiting up and making big hits next fall. Some of them, though, think it might happen on offense. McSurdy was one of 22 players who went through several drills in front of NFL scouts at UM, including speed drills on the SprinTurf of Washington-Grizzly Stadium. He’d been through all of them before at the NFL scouting combine on Feb. 27, but that was at linebacker. Some of these guys want McSurdy to play fullback. “It’s awesome,” said the 242-pounder, who was the Big Sky Conference’s defensive player of the year. “There’s a few teams that just let me know that’s what they saw me at. They tell you, ‘Hey, we want to work you out as a fullback at your pro day,’ and you just do it.” McSurdy earned all-conference honors at tight end as a senior at Borah High in Boise, Idaho, and also played some running back. It seems safe to assume he excelled. “No, not really,” he said. “I was kind of a bruiser. And not to throw anybody under the bus, but my O-line wasn’t terrific. So there were a lot of 2-yard runs that took a lot of effort.” Five years later he was back on that side of the ball, if only for an afternoon. “Obviously they want to see you catch the ball and run some routes,” he said. “I went out and did that and felt pretty decent.” McSurdy also re-tested in the 40-yard dash, and lowered his time from 4.97 at the combine to 4.68 and 4.70. “Coach (Aric) Williams had me at 4.66,” McSurdy added. “I think he might’ve given me the home-town discount. But, good day.” - Fritz Neighbor, The Missoulian
02/20/12 - Former Borah High and Montana standout Caleb McSurdy is headed to the NFL Scouting Combine this week in Indianapolis. The combine begins Wednesday. McSurdy, a 6-foot-1, 242-pounder, was the Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year and a Football Championship Subdivision All-America a senior at Montana. McSurdy has been training in Arizona in preparation for the combine and Montana's March 9 pro day. He got the invite to the combine less than three weeks ago. "All I want is an opportunity to make it to a (NFL training) camp," said McSurdy, who had 293 tackles in his career for the Grizzlies. "All I want is an opportunity to show that I can play." The combine is a good place to make his case. Scouts, coaches and executives from all 32 teams will be in Indianapolis for the annual event, one that has been likened to a four-day job interview. Players go through a host of tests, including medical and psychological, as well as on-field drills and off-field interviews. "I'm really, really excited that I got to be one of the guys going to Indy," McSurdy said. - Brian Murphy, The Idaho Statesman
