CFL Combine Bench Press Record
Amazing performance at the CFL combine in Toronto this weekend, where Laurier offensive lineman Michael Knill broke the old record of 40 reps on the 225 pound bench press with 47 total. According to the cfl.ca article Knill is a trained power lifter, which explains some of it, and is also massive at 6'6" and 350 pounds. Where does that translate to draft position and eventual starting success in the CFL? Offensive line play is certainly more than your bench press number, even if it is incredible.
