This is the 2013 NFL Combine Bench Press Recap for the defensive linemen. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2013 NFL Combine: Bench Press Recap - Defensive Linemen

  • It will surprise nobody if SMU defensive end Margus Hunt proves to be workout warrior at the Combine. The former track athlete (6-8, 277) has a serious combination of strength and speed. He showed off the former in the bench press with 38 reps of 225 pounds. That tied for the most by the defensive linemen and easily led all of the defensive ends. Hunt could be a star in Indianapolis who rises up draft boards.

  • Missouri Southern State defensive tackle Brandon Williams was superb in the bench press. He matched Hunt with 38 reps. Williams (6-1, 335) has an advantage of short arms (32.58) and a barrel chest. He was a productive pass-rusher in college and could help his stock if he continues to have a great Combine.



  • TCU clearly has a great strength and conditioning program. Wideout Josh Boyce did extremely well on the bench press and defensive end Stansly Maponga followed suit. Maponga (6-2, 256) totaled an impressive 30 reps on the bench. That is a large total for a defender who is less than 260 pounds. Maponga needs a good Combine to help his draft stock after his dip in production in 2012.

  • Illinois defensive tackle Akeem Spence (6-1, 307) was a speed defender in college, but he showed some serious power at the Combine. Spence totaled 37 reps on the bench press; second only to Hunt and Brandon Williams. The short-armed Spence had an advantage, but it still was a good performance to help him get notice among a deep class of defensive tackles.

  • LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan (6-2, 309) was heavier than expected at the Combine. Apparently that extra weight was good, productive weight because he was able to manage 30 reps on the bench press. Logan has some speed and explosiveness, so it wouldn't be surprising if he is a standout in the field drills. Logan could be a workout warrior among the defensive linemen.



  • At the Senior Bowl, UCLA defensive end Datone Jones showed off a powerful physique that clearly illustrated the time he devoted to the weight room. Jones had a good performance on the bench press at the Combine with 29 reps. There were only three-edge defenders who did better.

  • Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner totaled 25 reps on the bench press. It was a solid total that won't help or hurt him. Werner (6-3, 266) should perform well in the field work.

  • Two defenders who had disappointing totals were South Carolina defensive end Devin Taylor and Florida State's Brandon Jenkins. Taylor (6-7, 266) has really long arms, but still only managed 14 reps. However, he has the frame to get bigger. Jenkins (6-2, 251) is undersized and managed only 18 reps. He missed all of last season with a foot injury, but clearly didn't use that time to add some strength for the NFL. Both players' stocks could be hurt by their underwhelming displays of strength.



  • Texas A&M's Damontre Moore, suprisingly, racked up the lowest - and most disappointing - total of the defensive linemen. He managed only 12 reps of 225 pounds. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder does have longer arms, but he needs more strength for the NFL. Moore's low bench press total could be a red flag for some teams.

  • There were a lot of the elite defensive line prospects who passed on the bench press. That group included Utah's Star Lotulelei, Florida's Sharrif Floyd, LSU's Barkevious Mingo, LSU's Sam Montgomery, Purdue's Kawann Short, Ohio State's Johnathan Hankins and Oregon's Dion Jordan. Lotulelei and Jordan had injury issues that prevented them from lifting.

    1) Freestyle, no shot stick!!!2) All-Star Weekend3) Michael Jordan (among other player enndesrmeots)4) My Player type of game mode (Legendary)5) Accessories (Shoes, tatts, headbands, etc )6) Extremely Better Player & Coach Models (more realistic)7) Highlights (from the current game & other games at halftime/end of game) After game interviews9 &10) Easy on the steals!!! Don't make gameplay default all 50 s across the board i.e., close shots, midrange shots, 3pt shots, steals, blocks, etc. The gameplay should embodie the REALISM of the NBA.

    Well, I hope to cut only the fat away, not the muscle and bone. I cut about 8 to 10% from the rough drtafs of SOUL OF SORCERY and SOUL OF TYRANTs, and I don't think they suffered for it.

    Thought Richardson was more of a 4-3 DT. Eagles dumped Patterson because he didn't fit so now we're going to pick up a 6-3, 294 lb end with 4 sacks. Eagles took Cox last year who Richardson is like. Richardson isn't big enough to be the NT we're looking for either.

    We need a big NT, cbs, dbs, sam, rush LB and that 3-4 DE is not hard to fill and shouldn't be a priority at all. We can get someone like Richardson elsewhere.

    I had to stop looking at the mock after seeing Richardson at 4.

    Stop reacting like a fan walter to every transaction. Eagles are undergoing a ton of changes.

    Fisher, Jordan, Ansah, Milliner, Star are the guys for the Eagles. Not Richardson, not Floyd either with his trex arms.

    They picked a couple of examples. I watched every game this year, mostly watching him play as there wasn't a lot to be excited about with Mizzou. He holds his own against the run and has a nasty streak. I also might add that there is not a single player in this draft that has a motor like he does.

    Well considering that everyone was salivating over Keke Mingo yet you have his stock dropping. Are you on drugs? The kid was a freak at the combine, with natural fluid hip movement in coverage.

    Did you not watch the clips Mayock and Sapp were going over of Richardson getting washed away in run support? Not exactly someone you want draft in a 3-4 defense.

    I disagree. He would be better as a NT and the Chiefs used a first rounder on one of those last year. There are better 5-tech DE's in this draft and there certainly are guys as good later on in the draft. Besides, if KC takes another D-lineman in the first, there will be riots. Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, Poe all in the last few drafts.

    They said it could have been from dehydration. Supposedly he lost 10 lbs in 3 days because of a busy schedule. If he checks out OK in the coming weeks he is still who I would take if I was Reid. Can't be blocked by one guy.

    Should go first overall. Has the numbers, has the highest motor of anyone in the draft this year. He's going to be an All-Pro and the Chiefs need a proper 5-Tech DE.

    Walt, no mention of Star's heart condition hear. I definitely think the top 5 just took a big hit. Moore with 12 reps, Star with the heart condition, the KC Cheifs apparently trading for Alex Smith. Add in Jones' medical red flags, and this draft just went all to hell.

    Montgomery admits he didn't always play full speed:

    Margus Hunt with 38 reps at 6'8, 277 lbs is straight beast.
