Saw this site posted on a Steelers board,might be what you're looking for...http://www.draftshowcase.com/

BENCH RESULTS
The linemen completed their lifts today. Adam Terry did not lift because of a torn pectoral. The story of the day was Scott Young of BYU who did 44 reps on the bench. He said he's done as many as 53 @225 and was regularly doing 47/48 during combine prep. Evan Mathis of Alabama turned in an excellent number with 35. Claude Terrell came in at 27 and Wes Sims put up 26. In a bit of a disappointment, Michael Roos was only able to do 19. Marion Barber did 20 reps on the bench today.

NO-SHOWS (kind of)
Cedric Benson, Alex Smith, Aaron Rodgers, Alex Barron and Dan Cody are among the players who will not work out here.

SPECIALISTS
The punters that came through were very big today. Dustin Colquitt measured in at 6'2, 211. He has signed with Jimmy Sexton as his agent. He said he's been projected anywhere from the 2nd to 4th Round. He has met informally with all special teams coaches, and one on one with Denver. Richard Hodges of Ball State came in at 6'0, 225. Mike Nugent talked a little bit about how kicking the NFL balls differs from the collegiate balls but says he adjusted within a week.

RUNNING BACKS
Ciatrick Fason has interviewed with Browns, Vikings, and Jags. He mentioned that the Jacksonville interview especially went well. He's being represented by Joel Siegel and compares himself to Shaun Alexander. He considers himself in the same class as Auburn's duo but he didn't get the same exposure. JJ Arrington has been talked to by the Browns and Bengals among other teams. He's a big Eagles fan and had a Broncos hat on for what it's worth. Frank Gore has had interest from the Chiefs, Broncos, Jets, Raiders, Bears and Steelers. He won't workout here, but will at his pro day where he expects to run in the 4.4s. Anthony Davis came in shorter than expected at 5'6. He's received interest from the Panthers, Steelers, Bengals, Dolphins and Giants. Davis expects to run sub 4.4 and said he'd like to possibly be a return man at the next level. Marion Barber came in at 5'11, 221 and said his 2nd Round grade from the advisory board made him decide to come out. Kay Jay Harris did not lift because of fatigue, but will run the 40 here. He had nothing but good things to say about teammate Pacman Jones and said that predicting Jones would be a great pro was an understatement. Nehemiah Broughton will work out entirely at fullback here. He weighed in almost exactly the same as at the Senior Bowl. Last Maurice Clarrett was one of the more popular players today. He came in weighing a solid 234.

GUARDS
Not only did BYU's Scott Young impress on the bench, but scouts around Indy have praised his athleticism. He's a hot name who is moving up the draft boards. Claude Terrell says he may hire a personal nutritionist after weighing in at 343 lbs, 13 lbs heavier than his playing weight. He played right tackle this past year but is being looked at exclusively at Guard. Oregon's Adam Snyder is also being projected at Guard but some teams say they might give him a try at tackle. He's talked to Atlanta, Miami and Washington. Joe Berger of D2 Michigan Tech measured in at 6'5 1/2, 303. Will do all workouts here. He is being looked at as more of a guard here. More on Berger to come. David Baas came in at 6'4, 319, and is being looked at as both a guard and center. Cleveland will interview him, and he has talked with the Bengals among other teams. He talks to former Wolverine center Dave Pearson a lot and has been compared to Steve Hutchinson. Marcus Johnson weighed 6'6, 321 and will do a full workout here. He has signed with Rich Moran and has said that teams have been wanting him at both Guard and Tackle. Elton Brown measured in at 6047, 329. He has interviewed with Packers, Falcons, Saints, Dolphins, Chiefs, Lions, and Panthers. Some teams have a slight interest in him as a right tackle. He will not workout at all here and will instead wait for his pro day. He is represented by Joel Seigel. Wisconsin's Dan Buenning will do all workouts in Indianapolis. Chicago and Detroit are the two teams hottest on his trail right now. Logan Mankins will do the complete workout and will get looks at both Guard and Tackle. Chris Kemoeatau will also do all of the workouts and Cleveland is among the interested teams in the Utah guard. Chris Myers said that the Broncos are among the teams interested in him because of their history of having lighter, quicker linemen. A strained hamstring will prohibit him from working out here, but he will participate in Miami's pro day. CJ Brooks will do all workouts. He came in at 6'5, 309.

CENTERS
Ben Wilkerson is adament that he is recovered from his knee injury. He had a wire in his knee after the injury but it has been removed. He came in at 6'3, 300. The two toughest linemen he's had to block are Tommie Harris and Langston Moore, the former South Carolina product who Wilkerson called one of the most underrated players around. Jason Brown measured in at 6'2, 314. He cut down from the 330 he played at last season to better play the center position. Chris Spencer called himself the best center in the SEC, something Ben Wilkerson later refuted.

OFFENSIVE TACKLES
Chris Colmer says he's 100% recovered from a viral infection. He cleared all medical tests here and there is almost no chance he will get it again. He measured in at 6'5, 310 and will not workout here because he had a repair to his right shoulder on Nov. 28. Ray Willis came in at 6'5 1/2, 327. Will do bench and position drills here. He has interviewed with the Vikings, Patriots, Cowboys, Dolphins and Broncos. His agent is Pat Dye. The toughest opponent he's faced? Arizona Cardinal and former Wake Forest DE Calvin Pace. Michael Munoz came in a little light at 6'5 1/2, 306 lbs. He will only do position drills here, his testing will take place at his pro day. Very well spoken and talked about how he does want to be a Bengal. Anthony Alabi was another good interview. He measured in at 6'5, 310, with 10 1/2 inch hands and 36 1/2 inch arms. He will do all workouts here. Rob Pettiti got down to 345 from the 361 he measured in at during the Senior Bowl.

Finally Mature?

After making a terrible impression at the preceedings a year ago it appears former Ohio St. RB Maurice Clarett has learned his lesson. Unlike last year Clarett showed up in top condition this week and will take part in all the workouts at the event. Clarett measured in at a cut 5-11 1/2 and 234 pounds and also displayed more maturity at his press conference. This weekend will be very important for Clarett and so far he has gotten off on the right foot.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Strong Man

The story of the Combine thus far in the weight room is Brigham Young OG Scott Young, who put up an amazing 43 reps of 225 lbs. This will certainly put Young's name on the map and help his stock.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Hurricanes Blowing Through

Miami (FL) RB Frank Gore will buck the trend and participate in all the workouts while in Indy, including the forty. This will be a great opportunity for him to help his stock if he can run well.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maybe Later

Two top prospects, QB Andrew Walter of Arizona St. and C Ben Wilkerson of L.S.U., are still rehabbing from injuries and won't be able to workout at the Combine. Look for each to show their wares at some point before the Draft though.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Little Men

Much has been made of the height of another great college runner, Darren Sproles, but Anthony Davis of Wisconsin only checked in at about one inch taller today, officially measuring 5-6 1/2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Top Runner Stops By

Although he won't work out Texas RB Cedric Benson will meet with teams and today measured in at a shade over 5-10 and 222 lbs. Don't expect Benson to be the only top prospect who opts to wait until his Pro Day to workout.

Jeeez, 43 reps at the bench press is insane. If anyone watched the skills competition, some of the strongest NFL guys, such as Jeremiah Trotter and La'Roi Glover, were around 30. So 43 is incredible.

Tops at the combine is usually somewhere around 40. I think Willie Roaf holds the record with like 48 or something. I don't know how many times Larry Allen could bench 225, but I know that he benched 700 once, so I'm sure he could do 225 just a few times.

875 lbs. That's just a LITTLE bit of weight. What's even more impressive about Larry Allen's ability to bench 700 is that he's a football player. In other words, his career isn't body-building or trying to set the record in the bench press, it's just that he happens to be able to bench 700. I bet there are alot of people out there (power lifters and such) that devote their lives to lifting weight and can't bench 700. Meanwhile Larry Allen can, even though he's got to squeeze in about a million other workouts while balancing in film study, etc.

It's times like that which make me glad I'm not an opposing defensive lineman. ;-D
