2013 NFL Scouting Combine: DL Bench Press and Broad Jump Results

Day 3 of the NFL Combine is moving along with the defensive linemen and linebackers, and more of the results from the day are in. A lot of these measurables occur in a vaccuum, and aren’t really related to football, but some of them are. For example, you want your linemen to have strong upper bodies, to fight off the blocker they are facing to make the sack/tackle.

The Bench Press is a decent indicator as to who strong guys are, so let’s look at those results:

NAME COLLEGE POSITION REPS
Hunt, Margus SMU DL 38
Williams, Brandon Missouri Southern St. DL 38
Spence, Akeem Illinois DL 37
Boyd, Josh Mississippi St. DL 32

Another drill worth looking at is the broad jump.  An important characteristic is also lower body strength, so the player can explode forward as they rush the passer.  We can definitely use the broad jump as a barometer.  Let’s see:
