Power And Speed On Display On Sunday

Posted by Mike Wobschall on February 28, 2010 – 4:36 pm

Sunday was not a day of rest for the players participating in the NFL Scouting Combine. A few of the position groups are putting up some impressive numbers.

Look on this page and you’ll see some blazing 40-yard dash times, including a 4.28 mark by WR Jacoby Ford and 4.35 and 4.37 performances from RBs Jahvid Best and C.J. Spiller.

As speedy as some of those times are, the performances from D-linemen in the bench press were just as strong. Frank Tydach of NFL.com called the DL bench pressing session the most entertaining 2-hour session of the Combine.

Georgia DT Jeff Owens put up 44 reps of the 225-pound bench and Tydach says that worked the rest of the room into a frenzy. Also putting up impressive numbers were Mammoth East Carolina DT Linval Joseph (39 reps) and Georgia DT Geno Atkins and UCLA DT Brian Price with 34 each.
