Default Re: Patrick Peterson no stronger than most of us

I don't pay attention to that stuff. That's pretty good for a corner coming out of college but even though strength is key and the NFL looks to most core lifts from the combine, but bench press is a very unique position RARELY EVER used in a real life stance, let alone football stance so I wouldn't fret it.

I've seen the tape on Peterson. The dude hits like a mack-truck and the tape NEVER lies. For the record, De'Angello Hall was timed as one of the fastest 40's ever and I've seen Hines outrun Hall 60 yards to the endzone with one shoe on.
