For a RB, the bench press shows the upper body strength the player can use for breaking tackles through stiff-arms, etc..

McCluster has always played bigger than he actually is.
Well if he played his size he would've never been playing college football. lol.

We already have McCluster, only his name is Peanut and he didn't cost a 2nd.

Now, LaGarrette Blount on the other hand....

20 reps of 225 pounds for a 170 pound man is insane. Thats ridiculous strength.

Well in fairness at his size and his short arms (29.25) he should have an easier time lifting than a lot of other guys.

Combine numbers mean ZERO as to how good a football player you are.

And yet they keep right on having the thing. I don't think anyone is arguing that it's a flawless system. But something doesn't have to be absolutely perfect to still be useful.

Don't take it personal, it was a jab at you expaining what the combine was to Boid and I, as if we're un-aware.

And my comment was a jab at you for acting like the combine is worthless just because it's not the only information you should utilize when selecting your draft pick.

Obviously the NFL combine is successful in generating profits to the NFL network and provides 'valuable' info coaches can't gather anywhere else..... ::)

Strange how they bothered to have it for years before the NFL Network came around...

Got a buddy named Trey, played for QO high school (good guy), just 19 yrs old, in his first year at a community college  now, weighs 170, guess what he puts up on the bench press?

225 an easy 15 times...

Does that make him an NFL quality player, did it make him a good runningback? He was third string his Junior year and shared the backfield his senior year. Ran a official 4.4 forty and is the same height as McCluster too.

Not that any of that matters... Just saying bench doesn't mean squat when talking about runningbacks, just like Bruce Cambells forty time doesn't mean squat because he's a lineman.

It sure looks sexy though doesn't it!> Ohhh awww!

My lil brother is about 6'3" (towers over me), and he has long arms.  He throws up 345...not sure about his reps at 225.  I'll ask him what he did...he is only 19 however.

And no...he is not NFL caliber. 

The combine is a big joke to me.  A meat market.

It does not define your career, but it is simply a meatmarket.  Never been really impressed with the combine, but at times I can see the merits of it. 


I do like watching the RBs and WRs run their forty times, and the linemen run the cone drills.

The bench reps have moments where it is fun...when the trainer called Tom Zibikowski "Rudy", and he said "never call me that again"...I laughed at that.

I share the same feelings, however players like Vernon Gholsten, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Charles Rodgers, etc, etc love the combine.. That should tell people something about the combine. IMO a draft selection should be based on film.... Not because a guy can run really fast in shorts, in a straight line.

The only meaningful part imo is the interviews.

It serves to normalize what you see on film since the quality of the opposition varies so wildly - not to mention schemes and such.

What you can't do is take a guy with bad film and let his physical skills overwhelm his football talent.
