Bennett threw a pass clocked at 60 mph during his combine workout, figures posted by "Ourlads' Guide to the NFL Draft" showed. South Alabama's Brandon Bridge and Oregon State's Sean Mannion tied for second at 57 mph. Oregon's Marcus Mariota was tied for fourth at 56 mph (with Duke's Anthony Boone), while Florida State's Jameis Winston -- the guy likely to go No. 1 overall in the draft -- was tied for sixth at 55 mph (with Nevada's Cody Fajardo).
Ourlads' reading comes from a radar gun positioned behind the receiver, and is one throw, not an average, Dan Shonka, Ourlads' general manager and national scout, told College Football 24/7 last year.
