NFL Veterans / NFL Fans Combine

Curious as to what some of the NFL vets would do at the combine. NFL should bring back that skills competition they used to have at the pro bowl.

What would Smitty's current 40 time be? Google says his original 40 time was 4.41. Could he still run a 4.5? 4.6?

What could guys like DWill and Beason do in the bench press. Beason looks like a damn bodybuilder now. I'm guessing the high 20s.


Curious as to what NFL fans would do as well.


In the 40 I might could run with Rich Eisen and hit 6.0... hard to say, not a runner and definitely not a sprinter.... I'd probably break/pull something.

Definitely could do the bench press though... last time I benched last week I hit 10 reps at 225 with strict form in my third set and could've done more... none of this bouncing off the chest stuff they do. Pretty sure I could get 16-18 if I did the drop and bounce like they do.

What's your 40 time?

Beason better hit up the 40s. My buddy (5'6 150lbs) is damn smaller than he is and he's repping 15-20 like nothing. I'm also kinda sad seeing these future NFL players barely getting 10 (Demontre Moore "12").

Your buddy doing 15 reps at 225 at 150lbs is impressive. Some of these players (Mattheiu doing 4) is unimpressive. Good thing his position doesn't require strength.

Just watched a video of a kid, saftey prospect Shamarko Thomas, ran a 4.42 (and fell down at the end) and benched 28 times. Impressive.

I ran a high 4.8 in high school but never tried the bench test. Looking at a 1 rep calculator it says I would have been able to do 10 reps of 225 based on my max bench back then.

I ran a 4.6 as well. That was two years ago, don't know what it would be now.

That is actually freakishly strong...

I'm sure he could be a professional weight lifter for his size.

I Dno about becoming a professional lifter. He has a wife and kid now and too busy in life lifting weight anymore. But the man is incredibly naturally strong. He's not built like your stereotypical strong guy. Small skinny man. I need to talk to him if he's still lifting. If he does I'll post a vid of it one day to prove that I'm not lieing .

Yep, and barely got that. He's not a big guy at all, but that's pretty weak for an NFL prospect of any size. He is fast though, and more importantly imo, he's quick. Love to see him as our PR/KR.
