just wondering do quarterbacks bench press at the combine like all the other positions do?
everybody at the combine has to bench press 225 lbs
They make offensive linemen run the 40, so I don’t see why they wouldn’t eliminate the bench for a QB. I’m sure each player can request to not perform a certain event though.
Here are the results
of this year’s combine. Seems only one QB did the bench press, though.
You actually dont have to do anything you dont want to do. Some people will forego certain events in order to avoid hurting their draft stock, while others will step up to participate in order to help their cause. One example was Brady Quinn doing the bench press and wowing the scouts with how strong he was.
If you dont do something during the combine, most guys will save it for their pro day, where scouts go to each college.
