For a point of comparison, here are some of the totals from other recent linebacker prospects:

Demario Davis 32
Luke Kuechly 27
Chris Borland 27
Denzel Perryman 27
Ryan Shazier 25
Khalil Mack 23
Bruce Irvin 23
Shane Ray 21
Lavonte David 19
Trent Murphy 19
Dante Fowler 19
Anthony Barr 15

UCLA's Myles Jack is the favorite to be the first linebacker selected, and he cranked out 19 reps of 225 pounds. Jack (6-1, 245) was heavier than expected, but in a good way. Jack's bench press total wasn't alarming, but it wasn't impressive.

The leader of all the linebackers was Clemson's B.J. Goodson. He totaled 30 reps. The 6-foot-1, 242-pounder showed some impressive strength to get his Combine started well.

The second-highest total came courtesy of Miami's Raphael Kirby. He churned out 27 reps in a good performance. Kirby needs to differentiate himself at the Combine and force teams to take notice, so the bench press was a nice start.

Arizona linebacker Scooby Wright (6-0, 239) dropped weight for the Combine, and maybe that hurt his bench press output. Still, Wright totaled 22 reps, which is a respectable amount. Wright needs a good Combine with a clean medical evaluation.

Considering Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker (5-11, 227) is undersized, it was impressive that he totaled 23 reps on the bench press. Other lineman who weighed around 250 didn't pop the bar up as much as Striker did, so this illustrates that Striker has put time in the weight room. However, on the down side, it makes you wonder if his frame is maxed out, and he won't be able to add much more weight in the NFL.

There were two underwhelming totals from early-round picks in Ohio State's Darron Lee and USC's Su'A Cravens. Lee (6-1, 232) had 17 reps, while Cravens (6-1, 226) posted 16 reps. It would be nice to see each one get to 20 reps at their pro days.

Kentucky linebacker Josh Forrest (6-3, 249) was a thumper who is a physical defender in the tackle box. As a big middle linebacker, it was surprising that Forrest finished dead last with 11 reps. That is an alarming total for Forrest. He needs to improve on that significantly at his pro day.

Monday's defensive back workout will set the pecking order at safety with the prime suspects being Keanu Neal of Florida, Darian Thompson of Boise State and Vonn Bell of Ohio State. As previously mentioned, Neal has been outperforming Bell regularly in combine training.

The belief is at least one safety will go in the late part of the opening round, and there's a chance two end up in the first frame. I'm hearing if you want a chance of selecting one of the top safeties, you'll have to move in front of Tennessee at the top of Round 2. I'm told the Baltimore Ravens are a team that could trade back into the bottom part of Round 1 to grab one of the safeties.

I'm told the Oakland Raiders won't let Darian Thompson get past them in the second round.

As of right now, people feel Jack Conklin is the player most desired by the Green Bay Packers, but it's very unlikely the Michigan State tackle falls that far. The contingency plans for the Pack seems to be Jason Spriggs at this point.

Teams were impressed with Germain Ifedi's workout, and there's a feeling the Texas A&M offensive tackle could slide into the late part of Round 1. I'm told right now Seattle and Denver are the teams targeting Ifedi late in round one.
