I don't think it is going to impact his draft status either way since he is a CB. That isn't a very important stat I don't really think for a CB.

I think it says more about his motivation and desire. It's not like he didn't have a lot of time to workout the past 6 months.

Just another question for teams to ask.

Probably got some discounted for bad form
This is really a non issue

other than line play and RB, where else do the bench reps hold any value?


I don't really think that they do. Can high reps possibly improve a WR's status? I certainly don't think low reps can hurt a WR, but maybe high could help. Other than that, it is about as irrelevant as a kicker's 40 time.

I'm not surprised at all. He's a little guy plus he hasn't been working out with the team. He probably hasn't been lifting at all.

considering he weighs like 170, its not unbelievable to only throw it up 4 times. not respectable, but not the end of the world.


He weighs 180 something and is running close to a 4.47 40. Your telling me it's not unreasonable for an athlete such as him to only get 4 reps of 225? Seriously my dick can rep 225 more than that. That's God awful combine stat.

He's got really long arms too, so probably doesn't help.

You probably can't do it one time.

No way to workout if you're not a member of the team?

I think not...

It might stop teams from looking at at 5'9" 185 lb strong safety though...

Your right I can't do it just one time I can do it multiple times. 225 4 times is absolutely horrible, what is he going to do when he has to jam a wideout at the line? Or shed a block? It's ok TM7 you can come work out with me.

You think NFL teams decide if a player can do these things based off of bench press?

Bench is probably the least important measurable, especially for a DB.

My left nut can bench press 225 more and that is the non dominant testi.

Is this Bench Press or Clean and jerk?

225 is nothing to bench.

Your right, they just make them do it for no reason at all. It's so useless why would you want a defensive player or for that matter a player who is going to use upper body strength to rip balls out or make arm tackles have upper body strength. I see your point now.
