    He did 41 reps on the bench press, which is superb for a guy who only weighs 232. I'm not worried about his strength with numbers like that.

    FOURTY TWO REPS! Man, that is one strong guy. He shouldn't have any problems shedding blockers. And I seriously doubt if the liver problem is going to affect him later.

    Looks like a very high ceiling for this guy.

    I love this pick. Also, as a bonus, the Tennessean reports that he can also play strong safety. He's 227 now, same a Bing. Add that I heard Bing was going to be moved to LB in Oakland, I'm really happy with this pick. Lowery and Nande can back up Lamont at SS, plus Nande will eat up STs and backup the outside. Could be a keeper long term.
