Combine events: Bench press

The bench press, quite simply, is a test of strength in which players bench press 225 pounds as many times as possible.

Here are the bests for number of bench press reps in the 2007 NFL Scouting Combine: 42 (defensive lineman Tank Tyler of N.C. State), 40 (offensive lineman Manny Ramirez of Texas Tech, Justin Blalock of Texas), 34 (offensive lineman Cameron Stephenson of Rutgers, offensive lineman Enoka Lucas of Oregon, offensive lineman Ryan Kalil of USC, offensive lineman Brandon Frye of Virginia Tech, defensive lineman Joe Cohen of Florida, tight end Daniel Coats of BYU, offensive lineman Nathan Bennett of Clemson).

Another notable performance from the 2007 combine came from quarterback Brady Quinn, who did 24 reps.
