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


2013 NFL Combine: Bench Press Recap - Linebackers

  • Apparently the weight put on by Florida linebacker Jelani Jenkins was all muscle. The 6-foot, 243-pounder was weighing about 10-15 pounds lighter during the college football season, but he checked in at the Combine much heavier than expected. Jenkins then put up an impressive total of 27 reps on the bench press. That tied for the fourth most among the linebackers. Jenkins needs a good Combine after missing a lot of his final season because of injuries.

  • Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene was a physical defender who racked up a ton of tackles over the past few seasons. The 6-foot-1, 241-pounder surprisingly finished second to last on the bench press with only 17 reps. That lack of strength could be a red flag for some teams. Greene has been one of the top 4-3 outside linebacker prospects; that shouldn't change based off the bench press, but he should get stronger for the NFL.



  • Georgia's Alec Ogletree is considered the top inside linebacker prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft. He had a mildly disappointing total of 20 reps on the bench press. Ogletree (6-2, 242) is a physical player, but may want to add more strength to help his ability to shed blocks from NFL offensive linemen.

  • Ogletree's teammate, Cornelius Washington (6-4, 265), is the largest prospect in the linebacker group, and he evidently works hard in the weight room. Washington led the linebackers with 36 reps on the bench press. He fell under the shadow of other players at Georgia like Ogletree, Jarvis Jones, John Jenkins and Bacarri Rambo. A big Combine could help Washington by resulting in teams wanting to get to know him better.



  • LSU's Kevin Minter was the only likely first-rounder, other than Ogletree, who took part in the bench press. Minter did well and finished with the fifth largest total - 25 reps. The 6-foot, 246-pounder was a physical force in 2012 and increased strength looked like it played a role in him improving his play as a junior. With questions surrounding Ogletree and Manti Te'o, Minter could be the cleanest prospect of the two. He could make a move up boards with a big Combine.

  • South Carolina linebacker Devonte Hollowman had the fewest reps on the bench press with only 15. The 6-foot-1, 243-pounder has good size, so it was surprising that he didn't produce more on the bench press.



  • There were a lot of the top linebackers who declined to participate in the bench press. That group included Georgia's Jarvis Jones, Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, Kansas State's Arthur Brown and Oregon's Kiko Alonso. It was disappointing that so many decided to wait until their pro days to bench.

    Teo did post great times in the shuttle and 3 cone though. Don't know why people are ignoring that. His 10 yard split was pretty good too.

    After the 40 yard dash Manti Te'o reportedly told one team scout that the reason he ran so slow was quote "Wait you guys seriously didn't see my girlfriend? I was giving her a piggy back ride the whole 40! You mean you really didn't see her?!?!?!"

    40 Times:
    4.82: James Laurinaitis
    Stephen Tulloch:4.81
    Brandon Spikes: 5.0
    4.86: Rey Maualuga
    E. J. Henderson: 4.80
    Jon Beason: 4.72
    Brian Cushing: 4.74
    Curtis Lofton: 4.79
    Bowman: 4.7
    London Fletcher: 4:85
    D'Qwell Jackson:4.73

    All these guys didn't impress in the 40 times, and yet many went in the 1st/2nd round. 40 times doesn't mean as much with middle linebackers, but it always is nice to have!

    Willis: 4.51
    Urlacher: 4.57
    DeMeco Ryan: 4.65
    Lawrence Timmons: 4.62
    Karlos Dansby: 4.56
    A. J. Hawk: 4.59
    David Harris: 4.59



    Urlac: 4.57

    Teos stock dropped because of how bad he played vs Alabama. The fact that hes an idiot does not help either.

    I was going to disagree w/your analysis of Te'o but you're right. Constant media attention for anything other than his play on the field can be seen as a major distraction. On the ther hand it might be better for him to go in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    Thinking that Teo's stock decreased is retarded
