Suh tops McCoy in bench press
Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh got the best of Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy on November 7, when Suh’s Cornhuskers defeated McCoy’s Sooners 10-3 in Lincoln.
And as the two defensive tackles—widely regarded as the top two prospects in this year’s draft—continue their journey to the NFL, they can look forward to being compared to one another at just about everything for the next two months.
On Sunday, that process began in Indianapolis when the defensive tackles hit the bench press for the first of many workouts at this year’s NFL combine.
Put the official scorecard at Suh 1, McCoy 0.
The former Cornhusker put up 32 reps at 225 pounds, besting McCoy’s 23.
But while Suh and McCoy have been dominating the headlines recently, it was Georgia’s Jeff Owens who stole the show.
Owens posted 44 repetitions on the bench press Sunday afternoon, falling one shy of tying the all-time combine record.
Other notable performances included East Carolina’s Linval Joseph putting up 39 reps and Georgia’s Geno Atkins and UCLA’s Brian Price posting 39 reps.
The workouts will resume on Monday when the defensive tackles run the 40-yard-dash at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
