    Rep numbers are overrated.

    His 40 time was more than enough to make him a top pick

    oh ya and he was doing this 11 years ago so comparing what people did at the combine 11 years ago is laughable.

    Gotta respect that comparatively disappointing statistics that Peppers put up lead to us still talking about him 11 years later. Most first rounders don't play that long, or that well. ......And the comparison is also of note because one player would be replacing the other.

    It just shows you how little the modern day slave auction has to do with football production.

    Who ran a 1.56 10, 10 years ago? And why is it laughable? I'm assuming you're still talking about bench numbers. Has there been some sort of advance in bench press technique over the last 10 years that allows people to rep 225 more then in the past?

    I don't know what the #'s from 11 years ago look like, but I bet the vast majority were worse then they are today and over the last few years. That's how the combine tends to go; as time goes by and the players gear more and more of their time and training specifically towards the combine they are going to be better at it then the guys that came before hand.

    For comparison sake Ric, Sapp (might be best 3-tech in NFL history) only did 16 reps
