Moore gets seven more reps in the bench press

Last month, Texas A&M linebacker/defensive end Damontre Moore managed a pedestrian 12 reps in the 225-pound bench press at the Scouting Combine.

It was the lowest number for all defensive linemen who worked out at the Combine.

Today, he pumped out seven more, for a new total of 19.  Which would has been third fewest at the Scouting Combine.

Still, as Warren Sapp always says (and we don’t agree with him on a lot of things but we agree on this one), there’s no weight bench on a football field.  If a guy can play, he can play.

In Moore’s case, all we know from today’s bench-press performance is that he increased his output in two weeks by more than 58 percent.
