Default Carson Palmer

I was reading in an old issue of ESPN the magazinethe other day and it stated that Carson Palmer is 6' 5", 232 lbs, runs a 4.65 40, and benches 385 lbs. To me that is pretty impressive for a quarterback. I'm by no means a small guy, 6' 3", 215 lbs, max bench 325 lbs and in high school I ran a 4.7...he dwarfs me and that doesn't happen very often especially by quarterbacks. The thing that impresses me most about his stats is his bench press, that is a lot of weight especially for someone who looks strong, but doesn't look like they could throw up that kind of weight. This interests me and I wonder what the stats of the other quarterbacks in the league look like compared to Palmer, especially Big Ben's. He isn't a small guy either. Anyone know where I could find these kind of stats?

Here are some numbers I found on Ben from his personel workout at Miami (OH) prior to the draft...

- 4.75 in the 40-yard dash
- 11.8 on a three-cone agility drill.
- 340 pound bench press
- 316 pound power clean
- 32 inch vertical jump

Those aren't bad stats Ben has, for some reason I just don't see Neil O'Donnel benching 450lbs, 350 maybe thats a long shot I think, but if he really did props to him

It's true... They would bring this up sometimes during games back in his day as the Steelers starting QB. At one time I remember them saying he bencehd more than each of his offensive lineman. He may not look like it, but Neil can pump some iron...

Neil had some guns on him! Actually when I mentioned a 450 lb. bench I hope I didn`t cut him short!
Ben doesn`t look like he benches 340, but I do believe it!

Carson definitely needs to use his scrambling ability just a bit more...about as much as Ben.
