Media isn’t allowed to watch workouts at the Combine so there’s often an eager gathering around televisions in the work center to see new times. Results are also posted on NFL.com, which is where we learned of bench press numbers by offensive linemen.
Some thoughts on bench reps and other results…
… Arkansas offensive lineman Mitch Petrus tied the Combine record with 45 reps of 225 lbs. That was seven more than any other invitee through Saturday morning.
… LSU return man Trindon Holliday reportedly ran an unofficial 4.22 in the 40-yard dash (the early buzz in the media room).
… Keep an eye on Maryland offensive tackle Bruce Campbell, who is turning some heads with his athletic ability.
… The honor of fastest offensive lineman at the Combine goes to Campbell — 4.85 seconds in the 40-yard dash. That’s 0.03 seconds faster than Oklahoma lineman Trent Williams. To put that in perspective, defensive linemen who may convert to linebacker in the NFL are hoping to run in the 4.5-second range.
… Missouri State tight end Clay Habor led the way at his position with 30 reps in the bench press.
