His bench press performance was just a bonus. Over the years it seems as though more emphasis is being put on game film, rather than the actual combine results.
Barkley's 29 bench press reps were tied with Georgia's Nick Chubb as the best of all the running backs. Barkley noted that on Twitter. All three of those players weigh 220 pounds or more, making their times even more impressive.
The ongoing debate amongst Giants fans is whether or not the team should use the No. 2 overall pick to draft Eli Manning's successor.
The Vikings could be looking for a long-term left tackle if they believe Riley Reiff would ultimately be better on the right side. "Jared Goff is telling me that every nook and cranny you can find in the schedule for a nap take it, because you will be exhausted", Rosen said. "And the answer's yes". Gesicki was also listed as a prospect to watch.
Because of his size, college coaches recruited Gesicki as a tight end. The last time it happened was 1995, when Penn State's Ki-Jana Carter was the first player selected. After all, there's not much he can do if the Browns actually draft him other than to try to be as great as he possibly can.
I did confirm with Gesicki following the interview that he has met with the Texans here in Indianapolis. There are other teams that would love to trade up and draft a QB, however their draft positions are too low and the Giants need to get a top five talent, regardless of position.
Gesicki has faced these types of questions before.
Gesicki now calls that a career turning point. He carries a second-round grade after setting Penn State records for catches (129) and touchdowns (15) by a tight end. "I had a few uncharacteristic drops and wasn't really playing up to my full potential".

That's where Gesicki hopes his athleticism will open a door.
So for all the buzz he has created in what essentially is a track meet for National Football League prospects, game-day tape needs to be taken into consideration.
He's eager to work on the rest.
