Lifting linebackers: Homan leads way with 32 reps

INDIANAPOLIS — In what definitely was the B-side to Oregon State DT Stephen Paea‘s hulking 49 reps in the 225-pound bench press Sunday, Ohio State’s Ross Homan led all linebackers at the NFL Scouting Combine with 32 lifts.

The 6-foot, 240-pound Homan — viewed by some as an undersized, weakside backer with good instincts — wasn’t the only Buckeye to crack the top 5, as Brian Rolle came in fourth with 28 reps.

Marquee prospect Von Miller from Texas A&M found himself well down the list with 21 reps, and Oregon’s Casey Matthews notched 13.

Here’s the top 5 among linebackers:

Homan: 32
Justin Houston, Georgia: 30
Mark Herzlich, Boston College: 29
Brian Rolle, Ohio State: 28
Orie Lemon, Oklahoma State: 27
