2013 NFL Combine Results: Margus Hunt, Brandon Williams top DLs in bench press drill

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Brandon Williams and Margus Hunt dominated the bench press drill on Sunday, both getting 38 reps.

The defensive linemen participated in the bench press drills at the NFL Combine on Sunday. This is one of the strongest and deepest units in the upcoming draft, and that made for a few surprises.

SMU's Margus Hunt and Missouri Southern State's Brandon Williams led the field, both getting 38 reps. Akeem Spence of Illinois was close behind with 37.

Alabama's Jesse Williams stated that he wanted to break Stephen Paea's record of 49, but he didn't come close, finishing with 30. Sheldon Richardson, John Jenkins and Bennie Logan also had 30 reps.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment of the day was Damontre Moore. A presumed top 15 pick, the former Aggie managed only 12 reps, and doesn't seem to have an injury excuse. In a crowded field this year, a result like that is going to stick out like a sore thumb. He will need to impress in Monday's workout drills.

Barkevious Mingo, Sharrif Floyd, Sam Montgomery, Dion Jordan and Johnathan Hankins didn't lift, but they're all expected to be available for the on-field workouts.
