long time visitor, first time poster obviously.
Had to create an account just to give some posters here some perspective about BWC's bench press number. As one informed poster here already stated, BWC has long arms, which makes a huge difference in benching. People throwing around their bench press numbers and body weight is comical, especially since I can guarantee none are 6'5 or taller AND have ever played college football.
Anyway here is a short list of DL that had pretty good college careers and their bench press numbers respectively.
320 pound college Albert Haynesworth 425lbs max
340 pound college Vince Wilfork 375lbs max
300 pound collge Marcus Spears 405lbs max
Combine Kevin Williams 23 reps at 225
Combine Jimmy Kennedy 23 reps of 225
Combine Gerald Mccoy 23 reps of 225
And please stop with the Trent Richardson benches 500lbs talk.
Adrian Peterson was a better college prospect and will end up having a better nfl career. But he's 6'2 (longer arms) and his max bench was only 345 lbs coming out of college. That's over 150lbs less than TR omgdz. Does that mean AP is weak since half the posters here could out bench press or can hang with him at the gym?
