2005 All-SoCal Combine Team

This is the 2005 All-SoCal Combine Team. Offensive and defensive players were chosen based on overall testing performance, not performance on the gridiron, coach's recommendation, or 'four-year recruitability.' Unsigned sophomores -- many of whom turned in great performances -- were not included.
