Butler leads way for linebackers in bench

INDIANAPOLIS — The linebackers took part in the final workouts of the day Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, with three standouts leading the way during bench press drills.

Washington ILB Donald Butler hoisted an impressive 35 repetitions, matching the level of the top defensive linemen from earlier in the day. Missouri OLB Sean Weatherspoon wasn’t far behind with 34 reps, followed by Kentucky ILB Micah Johnson (31).

Two other ‘backers considered likely first-round picks are Penn State’s Navorro Bowman (26) and Alabama’s Rolando McClain (24).
