NFL Combine Bench Press Numbers: Dalvin Cook, Other RBs Perform Well

The Florida State running back had an impressive bench press display.

It's bench press day for the running backs at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Ind.

Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, one of the top RBs in the class, scored an impressive total.

The 5-foot-10, 210-pound running back did 22 reps at 225 pounds.

This matches the total from former Alabama running back Derrick Henry, who did 22 reps at the combine in 2016. Some other bench press totals from this year's running backs: Stanford's Christian McCaffrey totaled 10 reps. Texas' D'Onta Foreman got 18. Oklahoma's Samaje Perine did 30! Clemson's Wayne Gallman did 21. San Diego State's Donnel Pumphrey did 5. UNC's Elijah Hood did 18. Tennessee's Alvin Kamara did 15. Pittsburgh's James Conner did 20.

Two of the class' other top running backs, LSU's Leonard Fournette and BYU's Jamaal Williams, chose not to do the bench press, like Ezekiel Elliott and C.J. Prosise did a year ago.

The NFL Scouting Combine runs through March 6 and is being televised on the NFL Network.
