The Fresno State standout talks about his performance for pro scouts at Bulldog Stadium in Fresno on Monday prior to the National Football League draft.

Former Fresno State quarterback Marcus McMaryion accepted an invitation to Oakland Raiders rookie mini-camp.

McMaryion went undrafted on Saturday, but he’ll be in Alameda on Friday when rookie mini-camp begins.

McMaryion led the Bulldogs to 22 wins over two seasons and a Mountain West Conference championship last year.

He had a productive pro day at Fresno State throwing to receivers including former Bulldogs teammate KeeSean Johnson, who was drafted in the sixth round by the Arizona Cardinals. McMaryion ran a 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds, which would have ranked in the top five among quarterbacks invited to the NFL Combine.

The Dinuba High product worked out at Carr Elite in Bakersfield, training with former Bulldogs wideout Eric Mahanke and on all things football with former Fresno State and NFL quarterback David Carr and his father, Rodger Carr.

The work paid off with multiple NFL camp invitations, according to his agent.

McMaryion is not the only Fresno State player to get a Raiders invite. Wide receiver Brian Burt, who appeared in six games as a senior in 2018, will be headed to Alameda this week.

Here’s where former Fresno State players are headed, as well as an Edison High alum, after signing undrafted free agent contracts:

Jeff Allison — The linebacker is joining the New York Jets. Allison finished the 2018 season with 132 tackles and was named the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year as a junior.

Michah St. Andrew — He’s headed to the Detroit Lions. Last season, St. Andrew started all 14 games, the last nine at right guard.

Jamire Jordan — The wide receiver joins the Kansas City Chiefs. Jordan played all 14 games for the Bulldogs in 2018 highlighted by his “kick-6” return that went 100 yards for a touchdown against Hawaii.

Tank Kelly — The defensive back joins the Baltimore Ravens. He was named All-Mountain West first-team selection in 2018 for the Bulldogs.

Tyler Horton — The Edison High alum is headed to the Miami Dolphins. He was named to the All-Mountain West first team for a second-straight season for Boise State.
