NFL Combine: Top Performers

Just three groups of players have completed the bench press so far, but we already have a tied record for the most repetitions of the 225 pound bar. Offensive lineman (guard) Mitch Petrus (Arkansas) put up a record-tying 45 reps to lead the linemen.  The record was originally set in 2000 (Leif Larson, DT-UTEP) and tied in 2006 (Mike Kudla, DE-Ohio State). Maryland Terrapins' left tackle Bruce Campbell finished fifth in that group with a respectable 34 reps, while projected top offensive lineman Russell Okung (Oklahoma State) finished second with 38. Reportedly, the Baltimore Ravens undrafted defensive lineman, Will Johnson (Michigan) put up an astounding 47 repetitions at the school's Pro Day last spring, gaining a tryout from the team but he was waived prior to the regular season.

In the tight ends group, little known Clay Harbor (Missouri State) threw up 30 repetitions while the guy on a lot of Baltimore Ravens fans' radar, Jermaine Gresham (Oklahoma) came up last in his group, only making it through 20 reps.

The Specialists (kick returners) group contains just three players in that category and the only notable name in that group is Trindon Holliday(LSU), who put up only 10 reps. At the same time, Holliday's draft stock is solely based on his speed, as he is expected to run one of, if not the fastest 40-yard dash at the Combine.
