Opeta's tally was the best for an offensive lineman since North Carolina's Russell Bodine in 2014 (42 repetitions).

Bradbury was the only offensive lineman to finish in the top five in the bench press (second, 34 repetitions), the three-cone drill and the 40-yard dash (4.92 seconds).

Bench press: Alex Barnes, Kansas State -- 34 repetitions

According to, the 226-pound Barnes notched the best bench-press performance for any sub-230-pound player since at least 2000, surpassing the 32 repetitions posted by Georgia Southern running back Jerick McKinnon in 2014.

Three-cone drill: Miles Sanders, Penn State -- 6.89 seconds
