Herzlich Wows at Combine

As expected, Herzlich was the center of attention today at the combine, as pro scouts were wowed by his poise and composure. More important is the fact that Herzlich is now officially back to being as strong physically as he was prior to cancer. He claims that his reps at 225, the combine weight for the bench press, are the same now as they were in the 2008-2009 season. I think that more scouts are concerned about his lateral movement and speed but we'll know soon enough how he scores on those tests.

Also in combine news, I thought I would pass around what seems to be common knowledge at this point: Rich Lapham might get drafted in the later rounds. Between Lapham and Claiborne BC will probably have at least two, and potentially three, linemen drafted, which makes the struggles of this year's o-line even more befuddling.

  1. Biggest thing here is that hes back to 244, after weighing in at 250 at the Senior Bowl. Gotta think that that means hes prepping for a 4-3 team.

  2. It's 6 pounds. For me that's just the difference between which side of lunch I'm on.
