The NFL Combine is almost here and while everyone is hoping that someone will eventually break Chris Johnson’s record for the 40 yard dash, we wanted to post some records for all the events.
I would be more impressed to see someone beat former Eastern Kentucky defensive tackle Justin Ernest’s bench press record of 51. Last year, UConn safety and first round pick of the Dallas Cowboys Byron Jones was able to break the Broad Jump record recently held by Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins, but will someone surpass him this year?
Here are the numbers to beat:
|Bench press (225 pounds)||Justin Ernest, E. Kentucky||1999||51|
|40-yard dash (pre-1999)||Bo Jackson, Auburn||1986||4.12|
|40-yard dash (post-1999)||Chris Johnson, East Carolina||2008||4.24|
|3-cone drill||Jeff Maehl, Oregon||2011||6.42|
|20-yard shuttle||Kevin Kasper, Iowa||2001||3.73|
|Broad jump||Byron Jones, UConn||2015||12″3″|
|Vertical jump||Gerald Sensabaugh, North Carolina||2005||46”|
