Top bench press performers at the combine for WRs/TEs

NCAA Football: Alabama A&M at Cincinnati David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Wednesday was the first day for combine participants on the bench press as the tight ends and wide receivers in group one got the iron pumping for the many scouts in attendance. Quarterbacks are also a part of group one but it has become a normal occurrence to see little to no passers participate due to the risk of injury and the chance it would affect their throwing the next day out on the field.

Unsurprisingly, no QBs touched the barbell yesterday but the majority of the top pass-catchers did. Here are the results:
