I've never understood why Bench Press is the only lift they make players do at the combine. It's not entirely useless, but if you're only going to do one lift squats or power cleans would give you a better idea of their football strength. Does anyone know the reasoning for bench press only?


This x1000. Coming from a meathead bench press is terrible at determining functional strength. It's sexy as hell at the gym when you put 3 plates on each side and rip that poo while other guys try not to ogle....but a guy with high squat numbers and high Olympic lift numbers will be functionally stronger than you.

When I wrestled our lifting coach focused almost exclusively on Olympic lifts since they simulate throwing a man against his will much better than beach muscle lifts.

I wish the kid well. I really thought he could become a decent offensive linemen in the NFL due to his versatility.

It's just like how the first question people usually ask someone who lift weights how much do they bench.

Most people don't realize that bench press works out the chest muscle.

If I was a nfl scout I would worry more about how much a player can squat since the strength comes from the legs.

Maybe next time don't grab his beard and ask if it's real.

Is there any more of an appropriate response to being starstruck than that?

I guess I wasn't the only one finding him impressive. He made the 53 over Chris Scott.

Most likely chose to come here because our line is so crappy he knew he could make the squad.
