NFL Scouting Combine medals count: Utah leads after Day 1

INDIANAPOLIS -- A year after Ohio State ran away with College Football 24/7's medals count at the NFL Scouting Combine, Utah took an early medals-count lead with seven on the first day.

The medals count awards schools gold, silver and bronze medals for its players who turn in a first-, second- or third-place finish at their position in any event. The updated count will be posted each day, concluding with the final results on Monday, and will be a strong indication of which school performed best.

Utah earned three gold medals and four silver medals. OL Isaac Asiata won the bench-press competition at his position (35 reps of 225 pounds), while OL Garett Bolles won the 3-cone drill (7.29) and the broad jump (115 inches). The Utes' four silver medals were split two each by Bolles and RB Joe Williams. Bolles finished second in the 40-yard dash (4.95) and 20-yard shuttle (4.55), while Williams finished second among running backs in the 40-yard dash (4.41) and the 20-yard shuttle.

Here are the results after the first day of drills:

  1. Utah -- GOLD: 3, SILVER: 4, BRONZE: 0, TOTAL: 7
  1. UTEP -- GOLD: 0, SILVER: 2, BRONZE: 3, TOTAL: 5
