INDIANAPOLIS — Sunday is the marquee day for on-field workouts, with quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers scheduled to take their turn through the NFL Scouting Combine car wash.
But before they run 40-yard dashes and sprint around cones, they visited Cardinals strength coach John Lott in the weight room Saturday to bench-press 225 pounds as many times as they could. Here’s how they did:
LSU’s Jordan Jefferson and Oregon’s Darron Thomas were the only signal-callers to attempt the bench press, each throwing up the weight 14 times. Arizona State’s Brock Osweiler won’t participate in any drills, he said, because of a sprained foot.
