2013 NFL Combine: Bench Press Recap - Tight Ends

  • Rice's Vance McDonald was the best tight end in the bench press. He notched a staggering total of 31 reps. McDonald also has the second-longest arms of any tight end at 34 3/8 inches. The 6-foot-4, 267-pounder looks like he is well on his way to being a combine star.

  • The second-highest total came from Stanford tight end Zach Ertz. The Cardinal stand out had 24 reps on the bench press, though he was aided by having short arms (31 3/4). Ertz (6-5, 249) was a good blocker in college, so this strength is not a complete surprise. Still, it was a good total for Ertz as he was second to only McDonald.



  • Most have Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert as the No. 1-rated tight end in the draft. Eifert (6-6, 250) did well with 22 reps on the bench press. As a senior, Eifert really improved his blocking, and that added strength was on display with a quality bench press total.

  • Two heavy tight ends had the same total on the bench press. Colorado's Nick Kasa (22 reps) and Michigan State's Dion Sims (22 reps) tied Eifert for the third-largest total on the bench press. Kasa (6-6, 269) and Sims (6-5, 262) both have blocking potential, and their respectable showing on the bench press illustrates that.



  • Three lower bench press totals weren't surprising. Florida's Jordan Reed (16 reps), Stanford's Levine Toilolo (17 reps) and UCLA's Joseph Fauria (17 reps) would not be expected to produce big totals. Reed (6-2, 236) is a smaller receiving tight end, while Toilolo (6-8, 260) and Fauria (6-7, 259) are lanky tight ends. All three need to add power to be effective blockers in the NFL.

  • It looks like a mistake, but Rutgers tight end D.C. Jefferson had only three reps on the bench press. Unfortunately, he was injured during the procedure and had to go to the hospital. It's a tough break for a borderline draftable prospect.

    Kelce is a punk, and Walt has no reason to waste his time 'lying' to a nobody like Andy.

    Either Kelce's stock is suddenly plunging from a 2010 suspension, or Walt simply wasn't aware of the situation until now (since Kelce was nowhere near his radar in 2010). I wonder which is more likely.

    Travis Kelce a "trainwreck" character-wise? This makes me laugh because it is simply not true. Would love to hear who you heard this from Walt? Another one of your fake "reliable/prestigious" sources? Liar.

    Hope the Ravens draft Sims and let Dickson walk. Need a blocking TE to pair with Pitta and Sims has all the tools. Agree?

    I don't care if Toilolo is 7 feet tall. He can't block or catch.

    Fauria to Cleveland in round 5 would be a nice fit. He's massive with good pedigree and a red zone beast, I'm surprised he hasn't gotten more attention. Chud likes athletic TEs, could definitely see Fauria fitting in there, if he last through 4 rounds

    Kasa = overrated; sure everyone talks potential but he doesn't even have good measurables

    Toilolo = riser

    This week will be about how well they run and block imo.
